Healthy Snacks

Parents, teachers and after-school care providers can support lifelong healthy eating habits by ensuring that healthy snacks - rather than high-sugar, high-fat snacks - are available for growing children during regular snack times.


Kids want foods that taste good. Schools and afterschool programs want foods that are safe and easy to serve. We all want our kids to be well nourished, well behaved and ready to learn.  The list below provides some suggested snacks that meet the Minnesota Action For Health Kids Food Guidelines. Check with your classroom teacher to determine if any of these foods need to be avoided due to allergies in the classroom.
