They continue eating and eating, and after they finish the entire bag or box of food, then they realize how much they have eaten. As a result, it is must better to snack on healthier food options. In this article, I will show you three different fun and healthy snack ideas that you can easily make within a few minutes. They are great for children since they are very colorful and fun as well as for adults.
1. Fruit Popsicles
Instead of reaching for an artificially flavored sugar popsicle, why not go for a healthier popsicle. On a hot summer day, it is no doubt that we all want a cold freezing popsicle to cool us down. However, rather than eating hundreds and hundreds of calories, why not replace that sugar with healthy natural sugar found in fruits. Fruit popsicles are very easy to make and are a hundred times healthier. First, cut up some of your favorite fruits. Then put them into molds and freeze them over night. There you have it — a healthy popsicle!
2. Apple and Raisin Sandwiches
For this snack idea, we will be making apple sandwiches. Basically, this is replacing the bread of a normal sandwich with apples and between the two apples placing raisins or other types of fruits if you don’t like raisins. First, cut up your apple vertically so that you have round slices. After doing that, cut out the core in a circular motion which turns the apple into the shape of a bagel. Then, using peanut butter spread some across two pieces of apples. For the peanut butter, choosing the less sugar would be much healthier. Then, place some raisins on one of the apple slices and place the other slice on top. This tastes absolutely amazing and is very easy to make.
3. Tomato and Cheese Crackers
Eating just plain crackers can sometimes get very boring and bland. As a result, for this snack idea, we will be making tomato and cheese crackers. As the name says, this would involve placing tomatoes and cheese on the crackers to make it healthier and tastier. Take some cherry tomatoes and cut them in half. Next, melt your cheese so that it makes a paste for the tomatoes to stick onto the crackers. After that is done, spread some cheese onto a cracker and place a few cut tomatoes on it.
As you can see, all three of these healthy snack alternatives are very quick and easy to make yet they taste amazing! If you are trying to cut down on snacks, make these healthy snack ideas in smaller portions and just limit yourself to those servings. That will definitely help cut down on your snacking habit.
