Healthy Snacks
 

Snacks are a great way to provide quick energy for people on the go.  Healthy snacks supplement meals by helping to provide the nutrients and energy growing bodies need.  Offer foods like fruits and vegetables, whole grains and dairy, rather that sugary treats and beverages filled with empty calories. 

When providing snacks for a classroom or sports team, it is best to avoid product containing nuts, peanuts, and peanut butter to prevent complications for children with allergies
