Of course we all know that fresh fruit or vegetables make a healthy snack and are good for us (and our kids or parents).  But sometimes it is nice to mix things up a bit, especially for the kids, and offer some other interesting options for healthy snack time.

Part of healthy living is making sure that neither our meals nor our snacks are super-sized, too, right?  So, even with a healthy snack, be sure to keep the amount small as well, just enough to keep up energy levels and tie you over to the next healthy meal.

We are excited to share these 10 healthy snack ideas with you.  Whether you are craving fruit, protein, grain, or even a little chocolate, we’ve got you covered!

1. Nutty Date Balls from Groovy Beets – these snack balls are naturally sweetened by dates and are fun to experiment with by adding in raw cacao powder for a superfood punch; made with walnuts, coconut, dates and vanilla, these are super easy to whip up (though they should be refrigerated for a few hours before serving).

2. Apple Boats from Texas 4-H – Apples are cut in half (and cores removed), then filled with peanut butter mixture with raisins, and topped off with a cheese slice as a “sail” for the “boat”.  Cute, right?
