Healthy Summer Snacks for Pre-schoolers
It is important to provide children with the most natural, unprocessed food possible to supply a nutrient dense diet required for growth and development. It is helpful to think of a child’s snack as a mini meal rather than a treat. Our snack culture has shaped the way we see a ‘snack’. As a society we perceive snacks to be high fat, processed, sugary and not very nutritious, like ice-cream, crisps, cakes and biscuits, but this doesn’t have to be the way. Snacks should be balanced with a variety of foods that offer different nutrients through-out the day.
Preschool children are in a period of rapid growth and high activity and therefore need small but regular meals and snacks through out the day to help support energy levels. Pre-school children need nutrient dense foods, providing a good supply of protein, vitamins and minerals to support healthy growth and development.
This recipe book aims to give you 10 new ideas of sweet and savoury snacks to try with your children this summer holiday.
