Healthy Snacks for Children

Snacks can keep younger children from getting so hungry that they become cranky, and they can keep older kids from overeating at larger meals

Early childhood settings have the unique opportunity to positively impact the health and well-being of the children in their care by encouraging them to eat healthily, regardless of the options they may be presented with at home

Healthy Snacks for Children

Serving healthy snacks to children is important to providing good nutrition, supporting lifelong healthy eating habits, and helping to prevent costly and potentially-disabling diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity

Eating habits are established at a young age making the early years environment an ideal setting in which to influence children’s diet

Young children depend on their families and teachers to support their well-being and promote positive development, including eating behaviors

Studies show that when kids are well nourished, they perform better in school and are better equipped to fight off disease
