Preschool Snack Ideas

Guest Author - Alissa Moy

Snack time is extremely important for your preschooler. With smaller tummies, your pre-k child eats best when offered smaller meals more often. This creates a need for some children to eat several snacks a day. Healthy snacking is a beneficial way to encourage healthy eating for your preschooler, and also insure that they get proper nutrition. Here is a list of fifty great snacks to have handy for your preschooler, or offer as a list to your preschool classroom parents. Please note that other then #50, peanut products are not listed as many children have allergies. Please be aware of who you share your snacks with!
