List of snack foods

I've compiled a list (that's not exhaustive) of snack foods that you can feel a little less guilty about when you feed them to your family. Many of these may be familiar, but I'd like to steer you in the direction of a better decision. I'd love to hear what you serve!


Other quick and easy's
  • Apple slices with peanut butter.
  • Nuts or sunflower seeds (for those with nut allergies) - be sure to read labels! Believe it or not, a lot of nuts have all kinds of crazy things added in.
  • Crackers and cream cheese.
  • Fruit or smoothies.
Ok, that's it for now!
How my week turned out...

    I'm glad potato chips made the list ;) Thanks for sharing. I never know what to give my kids for healthy snacks. It's easier to do healthy breakfasts and suppers, but for me snacks and lunches are hard.

    although the only familiar item on your list is potato chips and tortilla chips for me, i think it's a good selection. after all kids do want their "fun" food :)
    one just needs to remember to read labels, as you suggested with nuts.
    i would add raisins and other dried fruit, preferably with no additives (sugar and sulphur)—they are packed with fiber and glucose.
    we also love apples w/peanut butter as well as other quick and easy (and sweet) finger snack—baby carrots :)
