My 7 (almost 8) year old daughter is always hungry, even though everytime I turn around she is eating something. I tracked her eating for 5 days, including school lunches, school snacks, after school time with Nanny and snacks at friends' houses when I am not around to help make the snack choices. I realized very quickly that she was eating and drinking ALOT of empty calories - meaning sugar.
She makes great food choices at meal times and eats a great variety of things, we are just working on her snack choices and I am letting her shop and plan for her snacks with me. She loves apples and peanut butter, carrots and ranch, string cheese and yogurt. But those can get old very quickly. I am looking for some baked goods I can make for her that she will enjoy as well. I already substitute half the flour in my cookie recipes with whole wheat flour, but I was thinking of some kind of bar or healthy mufin recipes.
So, my question to you is.... what healthy snacks do you give your kids?
