Health and Delicious
You can't be there to stop your child from trading his or her healthy sandwich for a friend's slice of leftover pizza, but you can control what he or she noshes on after school. It may seem convenient to stock your pantry and fridge with ready-made snacks, but many of these processed foods can have frightening amounts of sodium and fat. Case in point: A serving of Ritz Bits crackers contains 220 calories, 13 grams of fat and 480 mg of sodium. Instead, try these easy-to-assemble snacks that provide plenty of vitamins and minerals as well as flavors that kids will actually like.
