Snack Baggies: Easy Kid’s Snacks for a Healthy, Organic Lifestyle.

There’s no need to over-think healthy snack foods, especially when time is a factor. Perfect for car trips, lunchboxes, and casual around-the-house snacking, a snack bag filled with a few simple finger foods can become an instant classic. Back when I was a kid, they were usually made of crackers, cut-up hot dogs and American cheese, but the concept is very easy to adapt to a healthier lifestyle, whether it’s a paleo diet, gluten free, organic, or just plain nutrition conscious. You can use just about anything, but I do have a few good suggestion.

  • •     Apple slices
  • •     Banana slices
  • •     Grapes
  • •     Any berries that are in season or on hand
  • •     Sunflower seeds
  • •     Almonds
  • •     Peanuts (not on the Paleo Diet)
  • •     Edamame (not on the Paleo Diet)
  • •     Quality deli meats, low on sodium, free of preservatives and nitrates. (Try wrapping ham around apple wedges!)
  • •     Carrots
  • •     Celery sticks
  • •     Hummus for dipping veggies

Mix and matching three to four items at a time, or narrowing down a few favorites for picky eaters, is a great way to get your kids a healthy, balanced snack. The concept is so simple it won’t be long before your kids are learning to make their own. Snack packs like this will teach them to reach for nutritious whole foods when they need a quick snack, to grab an actual fruit instead of a fruit flavored product in bar form.

Consider adding the occasional ‘fun food’ at the bottom of the bag as well; something tasty but maybe not quite as healthy. Kids are going to be exposed to junk food eventually. It may be better to introduce it as something to be eaten occasionally, and only after getting their fruits and vegetables, than to let it be some amazing mysterious treat that they should wolf down whenever their parents aren’t watching.

    Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News.

    Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo
    News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Cheers

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than
    that, this is great blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.
