Snack time can be rough. I mean really rough. Sometimes it’s a time that serves up a huge helping of frustration instead of a healthy afternoon snack. It doesn’t help that it’s that weird intermediary time between when my daughter gets home from school and dinner time. It certainly doesn’t help that she would rather eat a candy bar than an apple. It’s a time where she really tries to weasel in a little candy, and although she does deserve the treat, I always push for something healthier. An apple, that sounds so good why can’t I get her to go for that? If it were in a colorful pouch, mixed with other fruit flavors I bet she would go for it. Rarely does she sit down for a bowl of applesauce, what can I do? Is there a middle ground between apple and a candy bar?
I “interviewed” my daughter and asked her what snack foods she liked best, hoping it would open the door for me to squeeze in some of those healthier snacks. After all if it was her idea, the snacks would taste all the better I have learned. Of course she first rattled off her favorite cookies, chocolates and candy. I had to explain to her that those things were more of an occasional treat and not appropriate for snack time. Sometimes I think she likes the convenience of a quick candy than taking the time to eat something healthy that I have to make. As if waiting the five minutes would make her starve! She needs something that tastes like a treat but I want her to have something that will be not only healthy, but also fuel her and keep her satisfied until dinner time.
