An easy day isn’t too much to ask. A child who focuses for more than 3 minutes isn’t either. 

Getting picky kids to eat healthy in 2020 can be a challenge. Not only are you sick of serving snacks, you’re also done with coming up with healthy options to ease your guilt. I know it’s there, and I see you. 

Helping your kids focus means that they feel good about themselves, and that makes for a happy kid and happy family. 

Here are four snack ideas that are packed with essential nutrients for focus, mood, strength, or an immunity boost.

  1. Half a banana sliced down the middle, peanut butter, chopped nuts or fruit, and a drizzle of maple syrup or spread with peanut butter, all rolled in Crunchy Granola.

  2. Apple slices with warm nut butter dip (gently warm 1 to 2 tablespoons/15 to 30 mL of preferably organic nut butter and add a small amount of maple syrup or honey).

  3. Crudités; peppers, carrots, celery, zucchini, beets, cucumber, cauliflower, broccoli, green beans, sugar snap peas, asparagus (vegetable sticks) with nut butter, guacamole, Hummus, nuts, or seeds.

  4. Oatcakes, rice cakes, Ryvita crispbread, or crackers with Hummus, a mixture of tahini (sesame seed paste) and honey, cottage cheese, avocado dip, or dairy, goat’s, or sheep’s milk cheese.
