12 healthy-ish treats for kids' back-to-school lunches
Sweet snackables you won’t feel guilty about serving them
Treats packed with nutrient rich ingredients and healthy amounts of sneaky fruits and vegetables are a must-have for us no matter the time of year. But as kids head back to school, the quest to come up with snacks that won't give them a sugar rush in the middle of math class or sit uneaten in their lunchbox until the end of the day gets kicked into high gear. Luckily, we've got a few kid-approved recipes and thought starters in our back pocket, so crossing this item off your long weekend to-do list just got a whole lot simpler.
Below you'll find a collection of goodies that make use of natural sweeteners and are high in fibre and healthy fats, but still look and taste enough like dessert that your kiddos will be none the wiser. Oh, and many of them are freezer-friendly too, so you can make big batches and freeze in individual servings to reach for on especially hectic mornings. How's that for a success story to start off the school year?
