What constitutes a Healthy and Good Snack

Think of the snacks like mini meals.

Regularly, feed your children the same type of foods that you would do for breakfast, lunch or dinner, which includes low-fat dairy, sources of lean protein like, whole grains, eggs, vegetables, and fruits.

Healthy snacks provide protein, carbohydrates, fibre, and a little bit of healthy fat. In general, foods that are rich in fibre or protein will help us to stay feeling full for longer, and they are loaded with nutrients that children require to thrive.

This book gives 26 different healthy snack recipe ideas for everyone. Try out these recipes for your family!
