Finding healthy snacks that satisfy the whole family can sometimes be a challenge. Worry no more, we have 7 healthy snack ideas perfect for kids and adults. Delicious, nutritious, and satisfying, these snacks will get cheers from everyone!

1. Popcorn Trail Mix

Mix 1 bag air-popped popcorn with 1/4 cup raw almonds, 3 tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips, and 1/4 cup raisins for an easy afternoon snack that satisfies both sweet and salty cravings. Spice it up with sprinkled cinnamon, paprika, dried cranberries, or pistachios for variety. 

2. Sweet Potato Chips

Sweet potatoes are loaded with fiber, fat-free, and rich in vitamins. Simple slice a washed sweet potato into thin slices, toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt, bake for 50 minutes at 200 degrees (tossing halfway through). The perfect alternative to fatty french fries, sweet potato chips are sure to be a crowd-pleaser. 

3. Ham and cheese roll ups

This healthy snack takes less than 5 minutes to prepare and is perfect for little fingers. Simply roll up deli ham with low-fat cheese. Use toothpicks to secure roll ups. Loaded with protein, your whole family will stay full until dinner time! 

4. Coconut Yogurt Dip with Fruit

Take a trip to the tropics with this fresh and fun snack idea. Mix 8 ounces of Dannon yogurt with 1/4 cup shredded coconut, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/4 cup chopped nuts. Stir well and serve with sliced pineapples, mangos, and strawberries. 

5. Frozen grapes

Do your kids love sugary popsicles? Cut down the sugar and opt for frozen grapes for a healthy alternative to this icey treat. Frozen graps are both fun to eat and perfect for a warm afternoon. Simply plug grapes from stems and store in a large ziploc bag in the freezer for a healthy snack ready in seconds. 

6. Homemade Pita chips & Yogurt dip

Sprinkle whole-wheat pitas with paprika and slice into wedges. Toast and serve with an easy curry dip made by combining Dannon yogurt with 1 teaspoon curry powder and 1 scallion (thinly sliced). Your kids will love this healthy alternative to chips and salsa, and you'll love the nutrion they're getting from protein-packed yogurt and whole grains.
