Snack check - your guide to healthy snacking
We all probably snack more than we realise.
It’s so easy to grab a chocolate bar or a bag of crisps if we’re hungry, instead of preparing a healthier meal or snack, that we don’t notice how often we do it. It’s just the same for the kids too - if the naughty snacks are there, they’ll eat them. And the snacks kids like best are usually the ones that are full of fat, sugar and salt.
'Two snacks Max'
There are no hard and fast rules for how many snacks a day your kids should have, but some families find it useful to set a limit of two a day - one in the morning and one in the afternoon. And of course, it’s all the better if these snacks are the healthier kind instead of crisps or chocolate!
