Let’s face it moms! Getting your family (and sometimes even yourself) to choose healthy snacks fits snack dab into that practically impossible category of life. It is definitely easier said than done.
The good news is there are tons of simple and delicious recipes that will make this little part of life much easier for you. And the best news is that making healthier choices requires very little effort on your part other than keeping a few tasty items in your cupboards.
Our favorite trick is to become a master of disguise. It works wonders because the truth is: presentation is everything! If you put an apple in front of someone they are going to think whoopee its an apple. But when you disguise the apple with a few other delicious + nutritious things (read: granola, nut butter and dark chocolate) it suddenly looks a whole lot better!
The main goal is to keep making better choices by 1) eating more minerals such as those found in fruit (and dark chocolate!) and 2) cutting back on processed sweets such as junk food and candy bars.
We know first-hand that it is not easy making better choices, but here are a few links to some of our favorite healthy snacks for picky eaters that will help get you started (photo sources)!
Hope you Enjoy! =)
