Giving our kids snacks is second nature..their small stomachs and growing bodies are always hungry! may leave you hungry. It’s important not only to look at the amount of snacks, but also what they are made of. A snack that satisfies you not only in the moment but for the hours that follows includes fiber (volume), fat (satisfaction), and carbohydrates. (energy), protein (building). If all of this is in the treat, we can guarantee that those kids will be satisfied.
