Kids love snacks! Skip the candy and potato chips and try some of these healthier alternatives instead.

Yogurt

Yogurt is a great source of protein and calcium. Unfortunately, many yogurts marketed towards kids contain high amounts of refined sugar.

Instead, try Greek or plain yogurt sweetened with a few pieces of fresh fruit.

Fruit smoothies

Smoothies are great alternative to fruit juices bought in supermarkets.

Sneak in some green leafy veggies like spinach or kale along with fresh pieces of fruit. The fruit will mask the “grassy” flavour of the raw spinach that kids may not be too fond of.

Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate contains minerals such as zinc, iron and magnesium as well as antioxidants.

Commercial milk chocolate usually contains high amounts of refined sugar and not as much cacoa as dark chocolate.

NATIVE’s raw honey dark chocolate range of snacks are made using cocoa bean, cocoa butter, and raw eco-conscious honey. They are a delicious healthier alternative to milk chocolate.

Berries

Delicious bite-sized natural treats. What’s not to love about a berry?
Great on their own or with yogurt.

You could also try one of our raw honey, dark chocolate coated berry products:

• Native Raw Honey Chocolate Cranberries w/ground almond
• Native Raw honey chocolate Blueberries w/coconut

Carrots with humus

Chop the carrots into sticks and dip into hummus. Carrots are a great source of beta carotene, which converts to Vitamin A in your body, as well as fibre.

Banana

The swiss-army knife of fruits. Bananas go great with almost anything! A good source of energy and potassium. Like all fruits, they contain natural sugars so should be eaten in moderation.

Nuts

As long as your child is not allergic to nuts, they are a great snacking option.
A good source of healthy fats, protein and fibre.

Have a look at our Caramel Cashew and Almonds caramelized in our Organic certified coconut blossom nectar.

Trail Mix

Not only for those who enjoy the outdoors! Make your own trail mix by mixing nuts (almonds, cashews, pecan, peanuts), seeds (sunflower, pumpkin etc) with unsweetened dried fruit.

Raw Sugar Snap Peas with humus

Like carrots and cucumber, sugar snap peas are another great option to dip into hummus.

Whole-grain crackers and nut butter

Whole-grain crackers with nut butter are good for fibre and protein. You could also try our Buttermilk & Omega Seed Rusks. They’re made from gluten-free flour, omega seeds, buttermilk and free range eggs and sweetened with raw honey and organic coconut sugar only.
