Easy and Healthy Snacks for Your Preschooler

As parents, we all want to make sure our kids are eating a balanced and healthy diet. But when it comes to picky preschoolers, this can be a real challenge! Many preschoolers are notoriously picky eaters, and this can make it difficult to figure out how to provide them with healthy snacks. The good news is that there are plenty of healthy snacks that picky preschoolers will enjoy.

Fruits!

One of the best snacks for preschoolers is fruit. Fruit is naturally sweet, full of fiber and vitamins, and they provide a great source of energy. Apples, bananas, oranges, and grapes are all great options for snacks. Giving your preschooler a toothpick or fork and a bit of yogurt along with their fruit will make it more appealing to your child, as they will enjoy dipping their fruit pieces into the yummy yogurt. 

Smoothies!

Another great way to make sure your preschooler is eating their fruits is to make them a smoothie! Blend up a smoothie with some yogurt, frozen fruit and a little bit of honey. You can even sneak in some spinach! This is a sweet, cool snack that kids will enjoy on those warm spring days. 

Vegetables!

Vegetables are another great snack idea for preschoolers, but some children turn their noses up at leafy greens! Try baby carrots, celery, or sliced cucumbers with a bit of ranch dressing to add some flavor and more dipping fun!

Ant on a log!

Is your preschooler not easily fooled by a little ranch dressing? Try this classic after school snack: Ant on a log!  Simply fill some celery sticks with peanut butter and top with raisins. It’s a great snack for kids to make and enjoy, and it’s a nutritional snack full of protein!

These are just a few ideas for easy, healthy preschooler approved snacks. With a little creativity and some tasty ingredients, you can make healthy snacks that your kids will love!
