As a dietitian, I get a variety of questions: Is sugar toxic? (No.) Ought to I’m going on a kind of juice cleanses? (Additionally no.) 

However one of the crucial widespread questions I get is that this: What sorts of snacks ought to I feed my children?

My reply is that typical “enjoyable” snacks–all of the stuff marketed as snack meals like chips, cookies, and cheese crackers–are completely advantageous generally. 

However more often than not, snacks ought to merely seem like the sort of meals you serve at mealtime, like fruits, greens, complete grains, meats, beans, cheese, and nuts. 

As a result of in the event you solely serve “enjoyable” snacks to your youngster at snack time, meals–with their boring ol’ common meals–are going to lose their enchantment.

Fortunately, there’s a approach to remodel that meals into one thing particular: The Snack Platter.
