Vegetables and fruit are great options for snacks! Making snacks does not have to involve a great deal of preparation, searching for recipes, or complicated “kid-friendly” ideas! Options can simply be fresh fruit, fruit cups, frozen fruit with yogurt, or veggie sticks and hummus or dip.

Keep in mind to:

  • Have fresh, frozen or canned veggies and fruit in your house.
  • Keep carrots, pepper and celery sticks cut up in the fridge so they are ready to eat at anytime.
  • Enjoy veggies & fruit as snacks at home.
  • Pack veggies & fruit in your family’s lunch bag.

Enjoy Veggies & Fruit with every meal and snack!

Prepare snacks in advance. If healthy snacks are available, people are more likely to choose them when hunger strikes!
