Ideas for healthy snacks
Stock up with healthy choices. (Ideas: individual yogurts, canned fruit, string cheese, applesauce, tuna packed in water, low-fat milk, raisins, 100% juice boxes, water.)
·Wash, individually bag, and refrigerate healthy foods for easy access. (Ideas: baby carrots, broccoli and dip, whole-grain crackers and peanut butter, cheese cubes and apple slices, grapes, strawberries, melon cubes, grape tomatoes, ham or turkey slices wrapped around a breadstick.)
·Stock your pantry well. (Ideas: baked tortilla chips and bean dip, pretzels, low-fat microwave popcorn, whole-grain bagels and crackers.)
·Teach family members to prepare easy fruit shakes. In a blender, place 1 cup skim milk, ½ banana, ¼ tsp vanilla, and a dash of cinnamon. Blend until smooth. Or use frozen fruit. For example, blend together 1 cup fresh frozen strawberries, 1 cup skim milk, and 1 cup strawberry sherbet. Enjoy!
