Making kids choose among the array of snacks on the market, you can almost be sure that they will often go for sugary treats. Although this is widely accepted, obesity in children is now a growing concern. As a counter-measure, you can prepare natural fruit snacks instead.
Not all children like to have fresh fruits for snacks. Not all parents like to serve them, too. A solution for this kind of scenario are freeze dry fruits. These are slices of fruit that are processed through freeze drying.
Sealed in an airtight container, the dried fruit snack retains its nutritional value with longer shelf life than that of a fresh fruit. They are easy to pack into your children’s bags or have them in yours, ready to curb pangs of hunger during snack time.
You can also go online to buy freeze dried fruit and other healthy products. Yogurt, cheese, whole wheat, nuts and raw veggies can be served to add protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals to your kids’ health.
