Healthy Snack Suggestions

It’s always a good idea to include some protein and fiber with your snack to help control appetite and aid in control of blood sugar levels. Snacks high in carbohydrates or sugar and low in protein are non-filling and cause you to want to eat more. Nuts are a good snack, however, since we are a nut free facility, we do not provide nuts or nut butters but provide sunflower seed butter as an alternative. If you have a child who does not have a nut allergy, nuts can be offered at home.
