Children can be fussy eaters and serving anything healthy can be tricky. To get children to eat healthy, it is important to get them actively involved in the cooking process. There are so many healthy snack options that we can make at home with less than five ingredients. Snacks made with yogurt and fruit are really easy to make. Making these healthy snacks with your children will help them appreciate the snacks more.
Some of the healthy snack recipes that kids can help you make are:
2. Frozen banana granola pops
This recipe involves only two ingredients and is also a great way to use overripe bananas. These granola pops can be enjoyed dipped in chocolate or, if you are looking for a healthier version, you can dip them in yogurt.
3. English muffin donut
These are a great alternative to the otherwise unhealthy donuts. English muffin donuts are made out of cream cheese and English muffins. They look like real donuts without the sugar.
4. Cheese animal crackers
These animal crackers are similar in taste to the cheddar goldfish that children love. But they are definitely a much healthier option than goldfish.
5. Aussie granola bites
These granola bites are packed with healthy ingredients that are great for growing children. They are made with sunflower seeds, oats, and whole wheat flour.
6. Acai berry bowls
Acai is a superfood, and these bowls are filled with nutrition. They make a great snack for children, as acai is delicious when blended into a smoothie and topped with crunchy granola along with your child’s favorite fruits.
7. Strawberry yogurt bark
All you need is strawberries and yogurt to make this delicious, mouth-watering bark. This recipe is also versatile as you can use any flavor of yogurt and top with the fruits of your choice. It makes a great snack for kids, as they can change the recipe to suit their tastes.
8. Graham cracker banana cake
This is a fun activity for kids, as they will enjoy assembling this cake. You need to spread chocolate cream and cheese on graham crackers, which is always fun.
9. Whole wheat blueberry banana muffins
Whole wheat and flax seeds are used in this recipe. These moist muffins are healthy and will have your child asking for more.
10. Pineapple sprinkles cake
The pineapple slices make the cake in this recipe. Children can top the pineapple slices with cream cheese and Greek yogurt frosting.
11. Roasted honey sesame chickpeas
Simply roasting garbanzo beans or chickpeas in the oven gives them a nice toasty and crunchy texture. These can then be tossed with some honey and sesame seeds and enjoyed as a healthy snack.
