Keep your kids healthy and energized this fall with our list of kid friendly snacks!

  • iStock_000010996660XSmallCelery sticks with peanut butter and raisins, or low-fat cream cheese.
  • Any fruit. Bananas, grapes and apples are the easiest and least messy to eat. Try serving apples with low-fat cheese or peanut butter.
  • Any vegetables. Baby carrots come in small, portable snack size packets and snap peas are fun if you can get your kids to eat them. Serve with low-fat ranch dressing for dipping.
  • Flavored yogurt cups with low sugar, or frozen yogurt.
  • Smoothies with low-fat milk, strawberries and bananas.
  • Mix dry cereal, dried fruits and unsalted nuts for homemade trail mix. Try using raisins, dates, cashews, pecans or walnuts.
  • Vegetable or tomato soup with whole-grain crackers.
  • Whole-grain pita pockets or tortillas with salsa.
  • Pretzels. Serve with a little side of mustard if your kids like to dip.
  • Applesauce packs.
  • Animal crackers are an oldie but goodie, fun but still healthy.
  • Modified mini-pizzas. Use a mini whole-grain pita pocket, spread some tomato sauce, sprinkle low-fat mozzarella and add thinly sliced pieces of deli meat like ham for a topping. Just nuke in microwave or pop in the oven.
  • Put fruit slices and low-fat cheese cubes on a toothpick or pretzel rod for a fun fruit kabob.
