Kids are always snacking. It helps the budget if you’ve got some good cheap, seasonal snacks to provide them with.
It would seem that kids are always hungry: breakfast, 2nd breakfast, elevensies, luncheon…. Oh wait! Is that hobbits or kids?
Same thing, really.
While three (or more) good meals are a great base, a healthy afternoon snack can be just the ticket to help kids — and adults — make it through the 3:00 slump.
As our family moves away from a steady diet of processed foods toward more wholesome fare, I’ve been looking for ways to provide snacks without resorting to boxed crackers, gummies, and other pre-packaged foods. At the same time, I need to serve foods that won’t break the bank!
Can healthy eating be budget friendly? You betcha!
