How To Make Healthy but Yummy Snacks

Start making lunch boxes interesting and get creative! One of our tricks when we are making school snacks for kids is reduce the sugar in a recipe by about one third. You probably won’t even notice the difference.  (NB We’ve adjusted our BakeSw@p recipes already).  You can also use natural sugars or sugar alternatives to add sweetness to healthy snacks instead of refined sugar. Try using stevia, rice malt syrup or coconut sugar in your muffins, protein balls or anything that requires something sweet! Maple syrup and honey work well too.

Reducing the amount of sugary sweets and fatty foods your children eat can make a huge difference in their lives, both now and in the future. Click here to read more about easy ways to switch ingredients and learn about our healthy kids snacks for school.

Six Tips- School Snacks for Kids

  1. Have a variety – entertain your kids with different flavours, colours and textures. This will also encourage them to try more things!
  2. Avoid putting in too many of the same kinds of food – cheese, milk, yoghurt and cream in one snack box can be a dairy overload. Try choosing a food from each food group: dairy, meat, breads, vegetables and fruit.
  3. Practical snack ideas for school – there’s nothing worse than trying to eat a mango with no knife or a yoghurt with no spoon. Make life easy for your kids and make sure you pack them with the right tools for the job.
  4. Portion control is important – as a guide, between the ages of 7 – 9, children should be eating roughly 1700 – 1950 calories a day. This fluctuates depending on the amount of exercise they engage in as well as their current weight. If you are concerned about your child’s nutrition please seek medical advice.
  5. Swap for healthy alternatives and try different things – kids change their minds every day, so try out different snacks for school that will surprise them!
  6. Keep it simple, but fun – too many ingredients can become overwhelming but too little can be boring. Carrot sticks and a tzatziki dip or spinach and feta muffins can be great healthy snacks for kids at school, that aren’t over-complicated.
