5 Power Snacks for Kids

Just like breakfast, lunch, and dinner, snack time rolls around every day. As parents, we want to give our kids a snack that is readily available, satisfies their hunger, and is made with wholesome ingredients. But for many of us it's an afterthought.

As a working mom of three, I have quickly learned that preparation is key for everything, food included. No matter how well-intentioned I am in my thoughts about meals or snacks for myself and my kids, if I do not set aside time for preparation it's all too easy to just grab some junk food.

That changes today! These power snack ideas are easy, fun, and wholesome. Now your kids will have a snack with a nutritious purpose.
