Do you have any quick and healthy snack ideas I can use for my child?

You’ve probably noticed that your child is hungry quite often. That’s perfectly normal, and keeping a few healthy snacks on hand is a good idea for any mum or dad. In fact, it’s been shown that children often aren't getting all the necessary energy from three meals alone, so it's important to provide plenty of healthy snacks too.
  • Fruit, or pieces of vegetables, either raw or cooked, are a great choice for healthy snacks.
  • Seeds or trail mix are another quick and easy snack that’s also good for your child.
  • Fruit or cereal bars are a good choice.
  • Frozen ice lollies are another good snack idea for summer. Many are made with fruit, and they’re usually low in calories.
  • Fruit shakes, energy drinks and fruit juice are all good choices too.
