I've been trying to get healthier snacks for my family lately. Because we've cut back on how much we snack, we are able to better afford the slightly more expensive real food.
It's been fun teaching my children how much is a good portion: a handful of nuts, a few crackers, a few pieces of dried fruit.
This week, we have:
- Sunflower seeds
- Dried apricots
- Greek yogurt tubes (in the freezer, to eat instead of popsicles)
- Whole grain crackers
We've also tried to remember we can eat fruits and veggies for snacks, and I've been keeping pre-chopped ingredients for salad in the fridge.
Sometimes I enjoy making our own snacks, but lately I just don't have the energy for it. And that's okay!
