Healthy Snacks for Kids

This post may contain affiliate links.

My kids are always asking for snacks, so I try to keep healthy snacking options around my house.  Since we homeschool, we have to have lots of snacks around!  I know that when kids come home from school they are always hungry, too.  So today, I have compiled some of our favorite healthy snack options.  I also used to write a cooking blog, so most of these will be linked to the recipes there.


Healthy Snacks for Kids:

Easy healthy store-bought snacks to keep on hand:
Veggie sticks
Hummus dip
Dried Fruit
Fruit Leather
Veggie Chips or Baked chips
Granola Bars
Fresh fruit
Cheese Sticks
Whole Grain Crackers
Frozen grapes
Some simple healthy snack recipes that we enjoy:

My kids LOVE these! Just fill some little ice cube trays with your favorite yogurt flavors and freeze them.  Once they are frozen I store them in ziploc bags and the kids can eat them anytime.  If you don’t have little shaped ice cube trays, drop spoonfuls of yogurt onto a cookie sheet and freeze them that way.

A way to make simple snacks more fun is by serving them in interesting containers.  My kids favorite is the mini muffin tin.  We fill it up with their favorite snacks and they think it is so exciting!

What are your favorite healthy snacks for your kids?
