EASY SWAPS FOR SNACK TIME

Swap yoghurt pouches with greek yoghurt and fruit or cheese sticks to keep up the calcium.

Swap snack bars with corn crackers, nut butter and sliced banana for added sweetness.

Swap milk chocolate with a piece of dark chocolate and some nuts to help fill you up.

Rethink treats - a treat doesn’t have to be based on sugary junk food. Sometimes the one thing children crave the most is your attention and time.

Try leaving a fruit bowl in easy reach for hungry kids.

For a weekend treat, blend some frozen banana slices for a few minutes and you have delicious, healthy soft serve ice cream.

Pre-empt requests for snack foods by leaving out a healthy plate that could include veggie sticks, cheese, nuts or hummus.

Keep some boiled eggs in the fridge for an easy grab and go snack that comes with its own packaging.
