The 5 Best Whole Food Children's Snacks

October 5, 2016

Parents always have their kids’ best interests in mind, which is why keeping kids away from junk food is extremely important. What should you offer your children as an alternative to salty chips, sweet chocolate, and gummy fruit snacks? Reach for one of the healthiest, non-GMO, no sugar added, children’s snacks:

1. Fruit
Every type of fruit is bursting full of antioxidants and fiber, so try to get your kids hooked on these naturally sweet snacks instead of sugary candies and savory chips. You don’t have to hand your kids an apple or a bowl of berries, though. Make it more fun by buying all natural, frozen fruit treats, such as Froozer snacks, or throw a few different Froozer bars together in a blender to make a delicious smoothie.

2. Yogurt

Both regular and Greek yogurts have high levels of calcium, and Greek yogurt has more protein, which is naturally a healthier choice. To get kids interested in eating plain yogurt, cut up a Froozer snack and mix it in with the yogurt. This will ensure no added sugar and non-GMO products are in the yogurt. This is a snack that will peak your kids’ interest and will have them wanting more. We have three different flavors to choose from, Strawbanana Bliss, Tropical Sunset, and Blue Aloha. Let them pick their favorite as a yogurt topping and feel free to add a crunch with some roasted amlonds.

3. Breakfast Foods

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. To make sure your kids are full and fueled up for the day ahead of them, grab a Froozer pop or two as a quick and healthy breakfast on the go. This is a great alternative to sugary cereals and breakfast pastries. Froozer is full of nutrients which gives kids an energy boost that will help them power through the rest of their morning with ease.

4. Dips
Put together a plate with vegetables and hummus, Froozer and yogurt, or peanut butter and crackers for your kids. Kids will love the idea of being able to pick up and play with their food by dipping it into the side dish. Another bonus? This is an easy snack to prepare and serve when your kids bust through the front door after school with growling stomachs.

5. Cheese

Another protein-heavy food is cheese, which is a great snack to serve your kids after school, in moderation. Besides protein, cheese also contains calcium, potassium, and vitamin D, which are all essential nutrients. Try to choose cheddar, mozzarella, or swiss cheese, since many researchers believe these cheeses protect your children’s teeth from harsh acids.
