Health tip

These three guidelines will help you choose healthier snacks for your child.

  1. Start with snacks from the food groups. Most parents don’t typically allow their kids to get enough of low-fat dairy, vegetables, fruit and whole grains, so start with these!
  2. Think of snacks as mini meals and combine two or more food groups for a healthy snack.
  3. Choose snacks with protein from milk, nuts, eggs or lean meats to help them feel full longer. Add foods rich in carbohydrates like fruits, grains or vegetables for energy.
