Healthy Snacks Children Love to Eat
As children grow bigger and stronger, so does their appetite. Growing children often get hungry between meals, but they always seem to want to go for the unhealthy options. Snacks kids love that are full of refined flour, added sugars, and artificial ingredients are always their go-to, but as parents and guardians, we can change that.
We’re able to lead the way and make snack time a fantastic opportunity to sneak some extra nutrients into a child’s diet. Some of the best snacks for kids are the tastiest jerky available, but they’ll never know until you show them what they’re missing out on.
It’s time to replace highly processed snack foods with whole feeds that provide energy and nutrition.
In this post, we’re going to fill you in on some of the best snacks for kids, that when combined with jerky, will allow their taste buds to explode. In addition to this, we’re also going to take a deeper dive into all of our low sugar snack for kids options so you can get the best idea of what healthy and delicious jerky we have available to offer your little one’s tiny tummy.
What is the best snack for kids? What is going to make their mouth water, yet fill them up with healthy goodness at the same time? Well, it depends on their preferences of course, but there are some perfect pairings that no child will turn down once their stomach starts rumbling.
Original Jerky and Cheddar Cheese
First up is our all-natural classic beef jerky. When you pair this with a nice amount of cheddar cheese, it’s sure to become a children’s snack time favorite. To be honest, this pairing has been popular for as long as cows have been able to give milk. But this mixture includes Jeff’s jerky, and therefore, takes it to a whole other level. There is a sharp, soft taste of cheese that pairs well with Jeff’s soft, tender, and gluten-free classic beef Jerky that your child won’t be able to refuse. And, the best part? It’s 100% all-natural.
Sweet Teriyaki Jerky and Sunflower Seeds
If you were lucky enough to read our last article, you’ll know just how crazy kids go over our Sweet Teriyaki jerky flavor. This time, however, we’re enhancing that with this snack kids love – sunflower seeds. Teriyaki sauce makes the jerky sweet, and sunflower seeds provide a lovely salty flavoring in order to balance it out. Sunflower seeds can be one of the best snacks for kids with any jerky flavor, however, with teriyaki, it’s the perfect combination.
Sweet & Spicy Brisket Jerky and Tortilla Chips
If you have an older child with more refined taste buds, then they will for sure be able to handle a tiny bit of spice. They can get this from our 100% all-natural Sweet & Spicy Brisket Beef Jerky, which goes hand in hand with some crunchy tortilla chips. The consistency in the crunchy tortilla will serve as a contrast to the jerky, making a child feel nourished and satisfied with just a few bites.
Teriyaki Turkey Jerky and Avocado Roll-up
Our Teriyaki Turkey Jerky is soft and tender, 100% all-natural, gluten-free, and one of the best snacks for kids. Even if your child doesn’t like Turkey, we can guarantee they are bound to like this – especially when you mix it in Avocado.
This easy-to-eat healthy snack provides your child with a solid source of protein which again, if you read our last article, you will know just how important it is for children to have enough protein in their system. Not only does it build and repair tissues in their growing bodies, but it’s also very filling, which can help them stay satisfied between meals.
Avocado is full of heart-healthy fats, along with fiber, folate, pantothenic acid, potassium, several antioxidants, and vitamins C and K. Combined, this is truly a great snack to make and take with you on a family hike, biking trip, or even a picnic in the park!
