Kids are super active and always as much as something. Snacks are an important a part of your child’s diet because they help supply the vitamins and minerals doesn’t get from meals. The standard of the snack is equally important. A good solution to this problem would be to feed your child with snacks which are high in protein, low in carbs, and also at the same time appealing to his/her taste and eyes.

We love to to stick salt-free pretzel sticks into cubes of low-fat cheese to create “satellite snacks,” but you can also make cheese more interesting to kids by cutting it into fun shapes having a cookie cutter and making kabobs with your favorite fruit.
Beans are our best friends when it comes to high protein snack satisfaction. Edamame is available in its own perfectly portable package. It does not get much easier than that. Chickpeas are another high protein bean on our list of snack favorites.
Apples would be the go-to healthy fruit, but if you’re feeling the boring apple blues and wish to switch up your applesauce routine, try this delicious Instant Apple Crisp to get the vitamin C and fiber you’ve arrived at count on from apples. For an added treat, sprinkle with fresh blueberries along with a dollop of low-fat vanilla yogurt.
You can make your child eat anything, if you accompany it with a tasty dip. Hummus, made from chickpeas is a great protein source and a delicious one as well. It’s thick enough to be spread and for that reason less messy to eat. You may also prepare your own ranch dip with low-fat plain yogurt and ranch seasonings.
One easy switch we made ended up being to replace regular yogurt with Greek yogurt. This shift boosted our protein intake with little effort at all. Greek yogurt offers nearly double the amount protein per serving as it’s regular yogurt counterpart. For instance, a one-cup serving of Straus non-fat Greek yogurt offers 20g of protein. A same size serving of Straus non-fat plain yogurt offers 14g of protein.
This versatile childhood favorite has lots of protein and fiber. For a change, try making silly PB&J sandwiches with toasted mini waffles or rice cakes rather than bread, or try it with yogurt and raspberries inside a yummy frozen treat that’s super fun to consume.
