What are some healthy evening snacks for kids? What should I avoid?
Although it is always better to not eat close to bedtime, if your child is really hungry make sure it’s something light that combines a complex carbohydrate and a protein.
The Better Snacks
Some examples of snacks include a small bowl of high fibre cereal and milk, vegetables with hummus, peanut butter on toast or even a cheese string.
Snacks To Avoid
Foods that you need to make sure to avoid are ones that are high in sugar, fat or that are spicy.
Don’t Go Right To Bed
Finally, make sure to not go right to bed afterward. Read one more bedtime story and finish those last few pieces of the puzzle to make sure they don’t have any acid reflux or indigestion.
