What are some healthy snacks for kids to bring to school?

Any suggestions for some healthy snacks for kids to take to school?

Answer #1

Actually, to correct the previous poster, peanut butter is very healthy in moderation. Peanut Butter with Apple slices for example make a great snack for kids. Peanut Butter is a good source of protein, vitamin E, niacin, phosphorus, and magnesium.

People think that because Peanut Butter is high in fat that it’s bad for you, but it’s actually a “good fat” (unsaturated fat) which may help lower the bad cholesterol levels in your blood.
