At Pediatric Dentistry of Suffolk County, we know getting toddlers to eat healthy isn’t always easy. Make snack-time fun with these five delicious, simple, and quick-to-make snacks your child will love!
Cheese – It’s one of the healthiest snacks for your child’s teeth. It is an excellent source of calcium and vitamin D. Cutting the cheese into fun shapes will help your child enjoy this snack just as much their teeth will!
Apples – This fruit is known for its excellent health benefits, as it is jam packed with vitamins and nutrients. If your child is bored of the plain apple, why don’t you try adding peanut butter?
Eggs – It’s very important for your kids to get high-quality protein before they start their day. Eggs provide almost one-third of the daily recommended protein intake and help supply the requirements for your little ones.
Oatmeal – This fiber-rich meal can give your little kiddies a stream of energy. If they don’t like plain oatmeal, make them low-fat oatmeal cookies with cranberries to boots up their nutrition levels! They won’t even know they’re eating the miracle grain!
Sweet Potatoes – This vegetable is known for being an immensely nutritious snack. They are supplied with vitamin A, B6, C and folate. If you child doesn’t enjoy the taste of plain sweet potatoes, prepare them in a unique way. Slice the potatoes thin and bake them as chips.
A healthy snack is low in sugar and high in nutrients – just what young teeth and mouths need! For more information on the best snacks for children’s health, please CLICK HERE.
