Healthy snacks for your child

Sending your child to nursery school in Singapore is difficult enough as you will be leaving them in the care of someone else. Along with them you also need to ensure that you are providing them with good healthy snacks for school. Here are a few snack ideas that your child will love and are surprisingly healthy for them.

Popcorn
This is always a hit with your child and in addition, it is also a whole grain. There are almost 4 grams of fibre in every serving of popcorn that makes it not only healthy but also filling. You can also mix it up and use different recipes to ensure that your child enjoys their snack.

Ice Pops
These are a great summer treat and very easy to make in just about any flavour under the sun. In addition, when you make these yourself you know what you have put in. Ice pops made with orange juice are rich in vitamin C and if you add a bit of greek yoghurt in the mix you also have health probiotics for your child.

Cookies
Although these surgery treats may not seem like the healthiest option the trick is to control the ingredients that go into it. You can use whole wheat flour instead of refined flour and also add in a few rolled oats to give the cookies a boost of fibre.

Peanut butter
Natural peanut butter that does not have any kind of added sugar or fats can be a great snack option for your child. It provides them with the healthy fats and proteins that they need to grow. You can make it even healthier by pairing this with slices of fruit or whole wheat toast.

Cheese
A good cheese has a lot of flavours and can be used in just about any way possible. This makes it an ideal snack option for your child.

Homemade pizza
This is just a glamorized sandwich which makes it more likely that your child will eat it. By making it at home you can rest assured that your child is eating healthy ingredients in a super fun way.

Chips and dip
This is a super healthy option for your child. Using whole wheat pita or even tortilla chips along with dips such as hummus, salsa, or black bean dip can help you promote healthy eating habits. In addition, you can also encourage them to eat vegetables with the dip by cutting them into fun sizes.

The Chiltern House Nursery School focusses on the child’s health and encourages parents to send healthy snacks with their kids.
