5 Nutritional Breaks for Kids
Would you like to be inspired to find healthy snacks and lunch ideas for kids? Below you will find a healthy but tasty variety that can be done without sugar-loaded prepackaged snacks? Check out these nutritional breaks.
I read an interesting article about sugar and how we need to get a handle on where it can be found and how we need to get a stop to this. New information about how we were led astray by big businesses. Read about it here.
My grandson recently started junior kindergarten and my daughter wanted him to have enough food to keep him awake, active and satisfied during the day but not filled with packaged sugar. The school has 2 nutritional breaks in the day, each for 40 minutes. The children go outside when they are finished eating.
She decided to pack two separate meals. After looking everywhere she found containers that she liked at Walmart called Rubbermaid lunch blox and also bought some silicone cupcake liners. You can see what I mean for the liners on this link.
Here are her first 5 days of nutritional snacks.
Here is a list of what she packed. Notice the variety and the colour every day. He just loves them.
Apples with yogurt
Mini bagel with turkey
Kiwi and strawberries
Rye wafers with avocado hummus
strawberries and orange slices
croissants with cream cheese and ham
Cucumber tomato feta salad
Pear with Cinnamon (Use a little club soda when you cut fruit such as apples, nectarines, pears etc.)
I think you get the idea. Fill your child’s stomach with good and healthy foods. Stay away from the aisle that has “nutritional snack” or “healthy snack” written on it. It is more than likely filled with added sugars.
