How to Choose Healthy Snacks for Picky Eaters

If you have a picky eater at home, you know how challenging it can be to find snacks they will actually eat. Here are some tips and strategies to choose healthy snacks that even the fussiest eaters will love.

Understand Their Preferences

Texture Matters: Pay attention to the textures your child prefers. Some kids might like crunchy snacks while others prefer something soft.

Flavor Profiles: Identify the flavors they enjoy. Sweet, savory, or a mix? This will guide you in selecting the right snacks.

Involve Them in the Process

Let Them Choose: Involving your child in snack selection can make them more interested in eating. Give them options and let them pick.

Cooking Together: Engage them in the snack preparation process. Kids are more likely to eat something they helped make.

Make Healthy Swaps

Fruit Instead of Candy: Offer naturally sweet fruits like bfruitful Freeze Dried Strawberries instead of sugary snacks.

Whole Grains Over Processed: Choose whole grain options like Every Body Eat Cheese Less Crackers instead of refined grains.

Create Fun Presentations

Shape and Color: Use cookie cutters to create fun shapes with fruits and veggies. Colorful snacks are more visually appealing.

Dips and Spreads: Pair snacks with healthy dips like hummus or blend BRAMI Lupini Beans for added protein and fun.
