10 natural snacks kids love

Children growing up can eat at all times.

Children are often hungry between meals.

Salt-based and/or sugar-based snacks that you get from the store are not only unhealthy, they usually offer low saturation.

Light versions are not a good option either, because there the feeling of satiety is even smaller.

But what's wrong with a simple piece of fruit?

Nothing of course.

Also teach your children that fruit is healthy and offers fruit in an original form, or frozen as an ice cream.

A turtle ninja apple is of course a much tastier apple.


If it may be other snacking

Snacks are ideal for giving your child extra energy and healthy nutrients.

The following list is perfect for having a snack to your child, and you too can enjoy it, of course.

And all natural and healthy.

1. Banana oat biscuits

Homemade banana oat cakes are a delicious and healthy snack.

Plus, from a certain age, great to make with your child.

This is how they learn how to deal more with healthy foods from an early age.

The biscuits get their sweet taste due to the bananas, much better than sugar, of course.

How to make them:

Ingredients :

  • 3 ripe crushed bananas
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 2 cups oat flakes
  • 1/2 cup dried fruits, such as raisins
  • One-stick vanilla

Process:

  • Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. 
  • Place a soup spoon of this mixture on a greased oven plate each time. (on parchment paper it can also be)
  • Bake cookies at 175 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Let cool down well and store in a tin box.

2. Yogurt

Yogurt is an excellent choice as a snack for your child.

Opt for a healthy unprocessed yogurt.

You can sweeten it with a mixed banana, or strawberries.

Ready-made versions with fruit usually contain a lot of added sugars and dyes.

So choose raw in combination with fresh or dried fruit.

Let your child choose, and mix the fruit in the yochurt, let them experiment with flavors.

3. Pear pieces with ricotta cheese

Pears are very sweet and easy to offer to your child in slices.

Pears are high in fiber and vitamins and are a healthy sweet snack.

Serve them with a portion of ricotta cheese as a delicious dip.

Sugar doesn't have the pears are sweet enough.

4. Cottage Cheese

Cottage cheese is a fresh creamy cheese.

Full of protein, vit.B 12, calcium etc.

Vit B 12 is very important in childhood brain development.

Spread it on a whole-grain toast or as a dip with fruit.

5. Oatmeal

Oatmeal is not only a good breakfast but also a healthy satiating snack.

Full of fiber and healthy properties and delicious with some cinnamon and apple pieces.

If you want to sweeten it, use some coconut sugar or ground coconut.

Honey is also a good choice, but not for children under 1 year.

They can get the dangerous disease botulism through honey.

6. A piece of cheese

Cheese provides high protein and is a good source of calcium.

Cheese is also rich in magnesium and vitamins.

Cheese is also often rich in fat, so keep the portion small rather (30 gr) and top up with a bunch of grapes, a few dates or figs, or a whole grain sandwich

7. Fruit Smoothie

A fruit smoothie is a good snack for kids.

But be aware that they also eat unmixed fruit.

A smoothie is perfect for giving different fruits to your child, but it contains much less fiber.

Use fruit that is well ripe to make a smoothie.

A carrot can also be added.

8. A handful of raisins

Raisins are dried grapes.

However, they still contain all the healthy nutrients that are present in fresh grapes, but in smaller amounts of course.

It is a good plant source of iron, and often children lack iron.

9. Baked Sweet Potato

Sweet potatoes are packed with Vitamin A, good for eyes and skin.

A portion of homemade fries invariably goes in with big and small.

They are a great alternative to the regular French fries.

How to make them:

Ingredients:

1 fresh sweet potato

1 ladle coconut oil

some sea salt

Method :

Peel the sweet potato and cut it into french fries.

Twist the fries in melted coconut oil.

Spread them on a baking sheet with parchment paper and sprinkle some sea salt over them if necessary.

Bake them at 220 degrees in 20 minutes.

That's enough time to get your child to craft a paper fries bag.

10. Energy balls

Just flavored biscuits but made from nutritious whole grains.

Much healthier than cereal bars found on the market that usually contain refined sugars.

So make them yourself

Ingredients :

1 cup oat flakes

1/3 cup raw honey

1/2 cup almond butter

1/2 cup flax seed (broken) or chia seeds

scraping out 1 vanilla pod

1/2 cup dried fruit

Method :

Mix everything together in a spacious bowl.

Make balls or strips of them and let them stiffen up in the fridge.

For a chocolate version, you can also add broken black chocolate to it.
