5 Healthy Snack Options, Kid-Approved!

Who doesn’t love a good snack? We are always snacking in our home and also while on the go, so keeping healthy options in our kitchen is a total must. Since Aimery and I are both pretty active between working out at the gym and playing sports, I always try to incorporate more protein into our diet. Aimery definitely loves his sweets, but I do NOT love the sugar crash that comes along with it! Even with the pickiest toddler (I know all about that!) you can still find snack options that work for both you and your kids. I have found 5 healthy snack options that work for both me and my picky toddler to keep us going through the day… Keep reading for the list!

Chocolate Tofu Pudding

Although it isn’t always easy, I do what I can to have healthy eating habits in our home. My son is such a picky eater, so it can be difficult to get him to eat foods that have a healthy twist. Normally he can smell out every vegetable I try to hide in his favorite foods - nothing gets by him! I have had to be reallyyy sneaky lately to hide nutrient-dense foods into his 5 food groups (you know - chicken nuggets, pizza, mac and cheese, yogurt, and dessert). This week, I managed to sneak something that may seem crazy into his chocolate… Tofu! Yes, you read that right!
