Playground Snack of the Day
What’s a nutritious snack? Snacks don’t have to be pre-packaged. Just pick a food that you might serve for a meal and present it as a snack. Steamed vegetables, raw vegetables, fruit and nuts make excellent snacks.
I call it the Playground Snack because it is a food item offered after the child has been running around working up an appetite. Now is the time to offer nutritious food – when your child needs it. Don’t wait until dinner when your child is tired and her attention span is diminishing. Offer real food throughout the day when your child turns to you and asks for a snack. Bring real food out of the kitchen and onto the playground for nutritious snacking.
