When my kids were little, it was easy to get them to eat healthy snacks. Since they couldn’t chose their own snacks, they really had no choice but to eat healthy. Now that they are older, it gets a little more difficult. I rarely buy snacks that aren’t healthy, but they do have to make choices when they are at activities and I’m not there to supervise. My daughter, bless her, was the one eating an apple while trick or treating instead of digging in to the candy in her bag. She’s always been one to make healthy choices and limit her portions on her own. My boys? They need some guidance. My oldest is more than a little picky, which makes it that much harder to find healthy snacks. Luckily, all three kids love Cuties.
We homeschool, but my kids are always hungry when we are done learning for the day just like when they were in public school. My boys always want to reach for candy, but I want them to eat something healthier.
My kids love Cuties because they are sweet, but I love them because the kids can grab them by themselves. When they are done with school, they quickly head upstairs. I usually stay downstairs for a while to finish up my paperwork for a few minutes, so it’s always a blessing when they can get their own snack.
My younger two are 8 and 10, but they still like their snacks to be fun. My daughter likes to make campfires with her snacks. She uses pretzel sticks for the “logs” and slices of Cuties for the “fire”.
Ta da! A healthy snack for kids, and it’s one that they can assemble by themselves.
My daughter loves to sing and dance to the Cuties Music Video, so she turns it on in the living room after school.
Here she is showing off her sweetest moves. Isn’t she cute? Download the Cuties Song for your kids, then show off your kids’ moves on social media with the hashtag #IWantCuties.
