Brain Power Snack Ideas for your Children

brainpowersnacks

With your busy schedule and active lifestyle, it can be difficult to pack healthy snacks for your children. While pre-packaged snacks are an easy choice, they are often loaded with processed ingredients that can be harmful for kids. Here are a few options for easy, healthy snacks that are kid-approved:

1. PB and fruit protein rolls 

Peanut butter and jelly is always a hit when it comes to children. These no bake, PB and fruit protein balls taste like peanut butter and jelly, but they pack an extra protein punch. All you need is a cup of dried fruit, ½ cup of natural peanut butter, a cup of flake oats, two scoops of vanilla protein powder, ¼ cup ground flax and 3 tbsp of vanilla almond milk! Find out how to make them here. 

2. Cheese and cucumber sandwiches

This healthy snack can be made in just a few minutes. It still has the great crunch of cheese and crackers and it gets your kids about ¼ of their recommended daily vegetable intake. 

3. Apple sandwiches

Apple sandwiches are the perfect after-school snack. The combination of apples, almond butter and granola gives your children enough protein to stay full through after-school activities until dinner. All you need is five minutes to core and slice apples and mix almond butter with granola. 

4. Banana bites

Banana bites are a great portable snack and are also perfect for an addition to lunches. All you need to do is spread natural peanut butter on a whole wheat tortilla, place a banana on the tortilla, roll the banana into the tortilla and cut it into bite-size pieces. 

5. Veggies and hummus in a mason jar

Pack the bottom of a mason jar with hummus and place your favorite vegetables on top for an on-the-go snack. If your kids aren’t a fan of hummus, try adding peanut butter or homemade yogurt dip with natural peanut butter, Greek yogurt and honey.
