Healthy Snacks for Children of All Ages
Children need to eat three meals a day plus two healthy snacks for optimal growth. Snacking is important for children because they have smaller stomachs and they fill up quicker and then tend to run it off! It is important for them to get all the nutrients and hydration they need every day.
Snacks have gotten a bad image over the years. Actually snacks are an important part of our diets to keep our metabolism flowing and give us more energy in the day. Snacks are mini-meals that should be provided if there is a long stretch in-between meals. Healthy snacks help our children to take in the nutrients they need to help them grow and develop.
