I’ve got kids so I understand this undeniable Universal Truth – they are ALWAYS hungry. You can feed them the biggest bowl of dinner and still …. 10 minutes later… you find them hovering round the fridge.
And that’s where snacks come in. They need to be fast and easy with minimal clean up. Otherwise the day starts to feel like you live in your kitchen.
I’ve got you covered. Not only have I put together a little video of my top 30 Clean Eating Snacks, but I’ve also whipped up a FREE PRINTABLE SNACK CHEATSHEET. Stick it on the fridge and make your life that much easier. Unless you have toddlers. You’re going to have it tough for at least two more years. I promise it does get easier 🙂

Keeping a list of healthy snack ideas is a great way to remind the family to make good choices. Keep this list stuck to your fridge to make it easier for your family to recognize and identify healthy snack choices.
30 Clean Eating Snack Ideas for Kids
Is is OK to Snack between meals?
Shouldn’t we be cutting out food rather than adding more to our diet? The thing with Clean Eating is that it actually encourages you to eat MORE food not less.
Two Reasons to ADD Snacks to your Day
- Crowd out the crap. Often, we end up reaching for crappy, unhealthy foods when we feel peckish between meals. Our hunger cues make it so much harder to resist empty calorie choices. Keeping a regular healthy food snack habit means that you’re never really hungry and you are in control of the food you eat.
- Up your Fruit and Vegetable intake. It’s scary how few families actually reach the 5-a-day fruit and veggie target. Snacking on fresh fruits and veggies makes this easy. Use your snacks to nourish your body and enrich your diet.
So, before reaching for that bag of crisps or sugar laden treat, take a little look at this list and pick a healthy between meal snack.
