Smart Summertime Snacks!

Healthy Summertime Snacks

With the kids being home all day or heading into summer camp, you are surely finding yourself needing to heavily stock up on snacks. If bags of chips, candy bars, and sugary juice pouches fill your pantry right now, you need to read this post!

Kids' bodies are incredibly susceptible to the food that is pumped into them. If they're being fed junk, it actually does affect them physically(for some reason, contrary to popular belief). That being said, Doritos and Capri Sun really shouldn't be on your shopping list this summer. Instead, try out these healthy snacks that are also considered excellent brain foods!

  • Frozen blueberries

  • Fruit popsicles

  • Dried fruit

  • Avocado toast

  • Clementines

  • Bananas

  • Greek yogurt

  • Apples and nut butter

  • Roasted pumpkin seeds

  • Sunflower seeds

  • Trail mix

  • Kale chips

  • Sweet potato fries

  • Chopped carrots

  • Cherry tomatoes

  • Turkey jerky

  • Coconut chips

  • Dark chocolate

You get the idea! There are lots of easy, healthy swaps for the typical fast snack food. There are also tons of recipes online! If your kids aren't particularly fond of these ingredients, try slowly integrating them into their diet. Throw some kale chips next to their sandwich for lunch and see what happens! Slice up a banana atop their morning cereal. Add turkey jerky in their lunchbox as a midday snack. You can also get creative with shapes to intrigue them a bit more. Simply give those cookie cutters some more use!
