Healthy Back-to-School Snacks
According to Marilyn Tanner-Blasiar, a dietitian at Washington University School of Medicine, kids’ snacks (except cheese) should have fewer than 200 calories per serving and contain a daily value of 8 percent or less in total fat. These snacks fit the bill.
Back to Nature Crispy Cheddars Crackers
Free of trans fats and artificial flavorings, these squares, bagged in individual servings, have a big cheese taste that belies
their tiny size. With just 130 calories and 4.5 grams of fat, they’re a smart pick, too.
To buy: $4 for eight 1-ounce bags, at supermarkets.
