Goldfish crackers and Cheerios are always popular with the little ones, and while they’re undoubtedly delicious, they’re still made with a long list of processed ingredients and artificial sugars.
If you’re looking for some natural alternatives for the kids, we’ve got you covered. Here are some healthy snacks from Foodsterr that your family is sure to love.
Dried apricots, plums, raisins and mango slices are perfect for snacking at any time of the day. They’re portable, keep well and are easy for little hands to hold. We carry both regular and organic dried fruit, as well as sugar-free versions to keep those pearly whites healthy and cavity-free.
Nuts and nut butters are a great source of protein and healthy fats, and make a good snack for kids if you take note of a few safety guidelines. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has changed its policy of avoiding ground nuts and foods containing nuts until age three. The AAP now says that parents can offer them to babies six months and up, as long as they aren't showing signs of other food allergies and don't have a family history of nut allergies. Of course, whole nuts or spoonfuls of peanut butter are still a choking hazard, so avoid them until age four. Instead, you can serve ground nuts or nut butters in baked goods.
