High Protein Snacks for Kids

I received Happy Family products as compensation for writing this post. All opinions are my own.

high protein snacksWhether it’s summer vacation or back to school, kids need snacks that are easy, grab and go. Bonus if they are healthy snacks that kids can serve themselves! Kids do need a mix of protein, fat and complex carbs to fuel them throughout the day, though, so it’s important to choose high protein snacks!

  1. I love the idea of a pb&j swirl in yogurt. I may do this for myself!

  2. I am always looking for good snacks for my kids. I love those banana boats!

  3. I love these sneaky ways to add protein into your child’s diet! My kids probably need more protein since they gravitate towards carbs most of the time.

  4. The banana boats look delicious!

    I’ve read a few posts here and I can actually relate. I live not too far from Walmart in San Jose, CA. A few years ago, a friend of mine introduced me to Marie Callender’s’ cornbread. Today, its one of the most requested items for family dinners. You just can’t resist the great taste…Its’-a-maize-ing. Check out their website http://www.mccornbread.com to order your cornbread mix and start enjoying the MC experience.
