When it comes to finding healthy food in Pacific Beach, San Diego, it is important to find something that not only is good for you but also something your kids are going to love. This can be easier said than done, however. With so many delicious options out there, packing a little something with your child for their class or daycare center can be ideal when you want to ensure that they’re getting the right amount of nutrition.
Here are some excellent, yet healthy snack food ideas for the littles.
Veggies in Disguise
Celery and peanut butter can go a long way. Not only does the celery have healthy vitamins and nutrients, but the peanut butter is great for protein and other nutrients needed for your little one to make it through the day. Disguising this veggie is great, and you can also add little raisins on top to make it more fun.
Slices Make Everything Taste Good
Whether it is peaches, pears, apples or oranges; slicing them up can be a great way to provide them with something to eat. Not only that but throw in some grapes and cut strawberries and you have a fruit medley filled with delicious nutrients. It is also a great way for finger food eaters to get their daily dose of vitamins and minerals.
Fancy a Dressed Up Apple?
Slicing apples into chip-like slices can be fun, but the real fun begins when you squish peanut butter and raisins in the middle of two of those slices. This creates a fun sandwich. If you want to make it snack bite sized, just cut down the bigger slices once they’re sandwiched together into smaller finger grabbing bites.
Make Your Own Fig Newtons
With a couple of different recipes out there, you can skip the store bought high fructose corn syrup and go with something a bit more all natural. They’re delicious and sweetened with natural ingredients, rather than high sugar content. They’re easy to make, fun to eat and something kids love to take part in. Grab the figs and get to baking these delicious treats.
