Keeping your little one full all day long can sometimes feel like a marathon. Every time you turn around, there they are, hungry again! It’s easy to toss a bag of pretzels to your child when you’re in a hurry, but there are far healthier alternatives that will keep them fuller for longer. Wouldn’t you feel better about sending your kids to school knowing they wouldn’t take the opportunity to indulge in cafeteria sweet treats? Here are 4 healthy snacks your child will love — they also make great quick and easy options to satisfy your child hunger between their usual kids meals!Image Source

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Energy Balls

Kids love the sweetness of this energizing snack and you love that it really only takes one or two bites to fill your little one for hours. These Peanut Butter Oatmeal Energy Balls are no-bake with only a few ingredients that can last for weeks in the refrigerator. The protein from the peanut butter will support your child’s growth and immune system…just make sure no one in their class has a nut allergy!

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Your kid loves pulling all the guts out of your annual Halloween jack-o-lanterns, but have you ever saved the pumpkin seeds to eat? This super easy recipe makes use of those seeds that would otherwise be thrown away. All you have to do is rinse the seeds off, let them soak in water overnight, and bake with olive oil and salt. Not only are they a delicious snack, but they are jam-packed full of vital nutrients as well!

Homemade Applesauce

Fall is the perfect time to make homemade applesauce with your kids. If you have time to go out and pick your own apples at a local farm, that just adds to the fun of this easy recipe. This healthy version of applesauce is sugar-free because apples are sweet enough on their own. The pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg makes this fall treat even more cozy!

Baked Zucchini Chips

Instead of potato chips, why not try this delicious and healthy alternative? Zucchini chips are super easy to make — simply chop a zucchini into small slices and cover in olive oil and salt. While they can take up to 2 hours to bake in the oven, these tasty chips are well worth the wait. You and your kid can indulge without feeling guilty or getting a tummy ache.
