15 Quick and Easy Afternoon Snacks
hummus and vegetablesPortion control is very important when it comes to snacks. A snack should be just enough to take the hunger pain away, but not enough to ruin the next meal. When teaching kids about portion sizes, I like to use every day utensils rather than measuring cups and “diet food”. Teaching kids to get a bowl or plate and sit down at the table, rather than with the whole box or bag is an important habit to form. Have fruits and vegetables prepared and ready to eat, along with pre-portioned snacks to assist your child in making healthful choices.
