School is back is session, which means afternoon grazing is in full swing! Being prepared is a huge hack to healthy eating.  If the cupboard is filled with sugary, processed foods, your family will fill up... on sugary, processed foods.  Snack time can be nutritionally beneficial and promote healthy eating habits, if healthy options are available

Consider loading your cupboards with healthier, nutrient dense alternatives. Give these snack suggestions a try, they are both budget friendly and health promoting. 

-Yogurt; flavored, with/without toppings, YUM!

-Celery with Peanut Butter; add raisins for a twist.

-Apples with Peanut Butter; drizzle with honey for a sweet kick.

-Cottage Cheese; pair with veggies, or fruit for variety.
-Trail Mix; buy at the store, or make your own! Endless possibilities. 
-Nuts; Pick your favorites!


-Cheese and Whole Grain Crackers

-Hummus and Veggies RECIPE HERE
-Easy no-bake Energy Balls RECIPE HERE!

Next time you make your grocery list, consider adding these healthier options in place of those... less nutritious, prepackaged go-to options. :)
