Healthy, Real Food Snack Ideas For Kids

If you’ve got kids, you know that snack time is an important part of the day.  I’d say most parents prefer to serve their kiddos healthy snacks over unhealthy ones, but sometimes we get stuck in a rut and give our kids the same few healthy snacks over and over. They get bored and beg for different snacks or refuse to eat the snacks.

Have you ever run out ideas for healthy snacks for kids?  I have blanked on snack ideas while making my meal plans, so I wrote down a list of my children’s favorite real food snacks so that I have it handy for easy recall.

In a perfect world my kids would eat veggies, fruits, nuts, yogurt, and cheese without complaining. But the world isn’t perfect and neither is our diet.

Even though we strive for an 80/20 lifestyle, I still want my kids’ snacks to provide them with important nutrients. That way I don’t have to worry about the other “fun food” that inevitably ends up in my kiddos’ diets. (After all, I let my kids eat junk food because I know making it off limits will just make them want it more and sneak around to get it.)

So, here are our favorite real food snacks that make snack time a part of our nourishing, real food diet.
