Snack Attack! Healthy Snacks, Happy Kids
(NewsUSA) – Crunch, munch, dip, dunk, sip and savor. We are a nation of snack fanatics!
In fact, in a national survey among moms conducted by California Raisins, half said their kids enjoy at least one to two snacks each day, with another 44 percent indicating snacks are the norm for their kids three to four times each day. Among those surveyed, the go/no-go on what snacks make it into the cart boils down to if they consider it healthy and the ultimate test: a thumbs up or down from their child.
California Raisins are a great choice for that sought-after intersection of healthy snacking and happy kids. Naturally dried-by-the-sun, this fat-free, no-sugar-added versatile fruit adds a delicious burst of sweetness on its own or as an addition to favorite snacks.
“As a busy full-time working mom of three young kids, I’m always looking for convenient and healthy snacks for my children,” said Laura Fuentes, California Raisin Blogger Ambassador and founder of Momables, a company dedicated to helping parents create healthy school lunches. “California Raisins are a great choice for wholesome, on-the-go snacking, and I make them a key ingredient in many of my homemade baked goods.”
Raisins are a great value, too. They’re ranked as the most economical dried fruit by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
