Healthy Snacks for Teens

Healthy Snacks for Teens

August 27, 2017   1 Comment

Healthy snacks for teens should be easier than for little kids except it isn’t. What do you have stocked for healthy snacks after school?

Teenagers can make their own snacks (duh) and if you have the ingredients they will work with – you can hope that they will make something healthy.

I don’t need to tell you that my teens demand stuff like packaged granola bars and chips. Wouldn’t that be so easy? They would love that. Instead, I attempt to inspire them to make something with fresh food.

Whatever you do – do not buy them the Worst Snack to Eat. You will be tempted but DON’T DO IT!

Sometimes it works and sometimes they sigh heavily, roll their eyes, and starve.

On a few of the recipes below, I use a waffle iron. Kids love using it because it is easier for them to manage than the stove. My teens also love the “waffle” shape. It is kinda like an “Easy Bake Oven” except that it doesn’t use a light bulb ☺.

Smoothies are a fun option because then they get to use the blender. My daughter is always trying to come up with new fruit combinations so I make sure to have some bags of frozen fruit ready for her. I am usually forced to try her concoctions.
