Delicious and healthy snacks are on the agenda for today. Most kids eat breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, mid-afternoon snack and supper. That is a A LOT of food to think about everyday.
Healthy snacks for home
Our problem is that our kids want snacks NOW! Although Camille and I would like to offer some healthy fruit or vegetables with some hummus or tzatziki dip, this takes time to prep and our kids cannot wait a second for food. This is why we need ready-made snacks in the house. If our kids know we have unhealthy options in the cupboard, we can’t expect them to understand that the stack of chocolates and chips is only for the weekend or grown-ups. The solution? We need a stash of healthy snacks that are ready as soon as the kids ask! We sent some of our favourites in Jan’s box and here are our recommendations for your stash (buy from here)
Healthy snacks for school
As much as possible, we want snacks at school to be similar to snacks at home. Consistency is the key to eating habits. Lunchbox food subscriptions are also super helpful for planning for school snacks – they do all the sourcing and thinking for you. Our top 3 picks are:
Selection of snacks as often as you want! Love the customisability and deliciousness. From R200/ box.
Variety and goodness so your kids don’t get bored or hungry at school. From R595 / month.
Once we had a good look around, we were amazed at the amount of healthy options available to us South Africans, here’s our Pinterest shopping list for your enjoyment:
