Health officials say kids in elementary school should have a minimum of one healthy snack a day. The problem is that if the child is left to decide what to eat, it isn’t always nutritious.
The American Dietetic Association suggests choosing a vegetable, fruit or grain. The other things to pay attention to are proteins and low-fat dairy items.
Some ideas for snacks include whole wheat pasta with tomato sauce, whole grain waffle with berries, celery sticks with pb and j or grilled cheese with tomatoes on whole wheat.
