Some fun and easy snack ideas that you can incorporate into your kids current snack time include: fruit juice pops, create fruit pops by freezing your child's favorite flavor fruit juice in Popsicle molds in your freezer. They can eat this fun snack along with their favorite cookie or sandwich for a great after school or after play snack.

Another fun addition to your child's snack would be a fruit smoothie. These are fun and easy to make at home and tastes great. Mix a container of yogurt; a small amount of milk and your child's favorite fruit in your blender and you will have a smooth, nutritious drink to enjoy.

If your kid's like Jello, you can add fruit to any flavor to create an even healthier snack for them to enjoy. Simple chop up the fruit into the Jell-O mix as you mix it or open a can of fruit cocktail or your child's favorite fruit, drain and stir into the Jell-O.
