Ask An Expert: Maria, My Kids Are Asking For Candies! Any Healthier Suggestions?
Q: The kids lately have been asking for all the candy that is in the stores. Do you have some “healthier” suggestions to treat them to some thing good? ~Jane
A: Hi Jane! There are lots of healthy foods that are sweet-naturally, that will be satisfying for kids.
Part of it is making the food fun, and getting them involved in the preparation.
Here are some suggestions:
• Fruit kabobs-strawberries, pineapple & melon
• Yogurt, frozen (poke a small yogurt container with a popsicle stick and put in the freezer. It will be a healthier frozen yogurt!)
• Homemade granola bars
• Individual apple crumble
• Sliced banana drizzled with honey
• Canteloupe and melon, dipped in yogurt & light whip cream
