3 Healthy Kid-Friendly Snacks
This post written by guest blogger— Salomé Torres
Kids are very smart. When you feed them healthy foods, they learn to eat that way. In fact we end up eating the same foods that we ate when we were little once we become adults. A healthy lifestyle can change your kid’s life forever.
Here are some of the healthiest and most fun snacks to make! Making the healthy versions of your kids favorite foods will help them realize that healthy food can be delicious and fun when it’s made with the love of their parents because it’s not just the food we eat that brings us nourishment—it’s also having a good relationship with our loved ones. Preparing food with your kids will bring unity to your family.
Use organic products as much as you can, especially when buying peanuts, apples, popcorn and veggies. If you are not using organic fruits and veggies, wash them with a solution of vinegar and water to remove any residual pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.
Enjoy the recipes!
