Healthy Snacks for Kids
Top nutrition experts recommend healthy (and tasty) treats—just what your child’s body needs to focus on homework, rev up for soccer practice, or unwind for bed.
Go for something rich in fiber and protein and low in fat and sugar. This will help your kid stay sated and keep her from crashing as she masters long division, says pediatric registered dietitian Tara Harwood. Hot chocolate might be helpful, too: The scant amount of caffeine can raise endorphin levels, which promotes focus.
