Spending the night before school starts googling things like “healthy breakfast ideas” and “what are healthy snacks for kids at school?” can be exhausting. Keep meal planning simple by upgrading your child’s favorite snacks. If she loves chips, give her that crunch with a pack of potassium with banana chips. Grab this variety pack ($20) for easy snacking on-the-go.
If you notice that your child never eats the fruit you pack in his lunch, try tossing in some dried fruit. He’ll get similar vitamins and antioxidants as a whole piece of fruit while feeling like he’s getting a treat. Learn how to make your own dried fruit at home.
