Healthy Snacks for Kids at School

Walking past the snack aisle at your local supermarket can sometimes be a challenge in itself: what do you feed your children when all the options available are full of sugar, artificial preservatives, and other ingredients you can’t even pronounce? At FUNCH, we’re parents too - and giving our children healthy snacks at school was something we struggled with. Until now. 

Throw away those salted potato chip packets and chocolate muesli bars: FUNCH is here to share with you our healthy snacks for kids at school. Whether they’re a preschooler, in primary school or just beginning high school, your kids are sure to appreciate these tasty and healthy snacks at school. Read on for some clever suggestions.

1. Oatmeal and macadamia cookies

Healthy morsels that the kids will love! Made with oats, flour, coconut, sugar and macadamias, this is one tasty snack that will satisfy their little stomachs. The kids can even get involved in helping prepare these cookies. A great alternative? Try some tasty salted caramel and oat protein cookies.

2. Banana bread

We hope you put your culinary skills to good use during lockdown. Kids and adults alike appreciate the taste of banana bread. While it might take longer to prepare and bake than the other suggestions listed here, it makes for a great afternoon treat or snack that can be tucked away in a lunchbox. If you’re looking for a bit more zing, try our choccy chia banana bread!

3. Crunchy popcorn cauliflower 

Cut cauliflower into small florets and cook in a large saucepan of boiling water for about 5 minutes. Drain well and roll into a bowl with breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. Then, transfer cauliflower to a tray lined with baking paper. Put into the oven, and bake for 20 minutes, turning until crispy golden brown. Serve in ziplock bags.
