5 Easy-To-Make Healthy Snacks For Kids

It is possible to make fruits, vegetables, protein, and fiber appealing to your kids. Here are some tried-and-true methods for making kids shout, “Hooray for healthy foods!”


Kids go crazy over these delicious sippable treats, and they’re packed with nutrients. Use full-fat non-homogenized yogurt, filtered water, and a banana as the smoothie’s base, then experiment with a combination of cut-up fresh or frozen fruit, hemp heart or chia seeds (previously ground up), whey isolate protein or sprouted brown rice protein powder and a small serving of leafy greens (spinach or celery tops work best). It’s a great way to sneak your all important protein, healthy carb (fruit and greens) and fat source along with the fiber into your child’s diet.

Take a Dip

Kids love anything they can dip! A baggie full of carrots and celery sticks, cucumber and bell pepper slices, sugar snap peas and cherry tomatoes will disappear like magic if there’s a tub of dip to go with them. The yogurt base dip and veggies compliment each other.


Yogurt is an excellent source of calcium, fat and probiotics and children love it dressed up. Choose the non homogenized version for better health. To add taste and nutritional value, whip up a yogurt parfait with berries, shredded coconut, and vanilla, strawberry or chocolate flavored whey isolate protein powder or make a homemade fruity yogurt pop that beats sugary store-bought frozen treats any day. Those with casein allergies, use Vanilla Sprouted Brown Rice Protein Powder instead.

Eggs and Nitrate Free Meats

One egg provides a 4-year-old with almost one-third of his/her protein requirements for the day, not to mention high in essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. Keep a bunch of hard-boiled eggs in the fridge at all times. Another great choice is meats that are nitrate free. Look for turkey, chicken, beef or bison sausages, smokies or hotdogs

Nut Mix

Toss together a healthy combo of nuts, seeds, banana chips, gogi berries, carob or cocao chips and raisins for a portable snack. Nuts and seeds contain must-have minerals such as magnesium, iron, and zinc and essential fatty acids. Try this combo or make up one of your own yummy combinations!
