There are lots of debates about snacks and kids and what’s best. I don’t think there is one right answer (though you can check out my post on tips for kids and snacking), but I do know that for our family, I want snacks to be food I feel good about our kids eating. But I also don’t have a ton of time to spend in the kitchen. These 13 sugar free snack ideas are all pretty simple. Some of them require a bit of work, but almost all can be frozen so that you can easily make a bunch and save them so you’re not constantly making homemade snacks. When my kids are eating healthy snacks, I don’t mind so much if they don’t eat a lot at meals. I know they’ve already gotten lots of good stuff in their bellies!

Note also that some of these sugar free snack ideas are sweetened, but only with small amounts of dates, honey, or maple syrup.
