Snacks like chips, cookies, and dried fruit stick to the teeth and are full of sugars that can cause cavities. Fresh fruits and vegetable snacks provide nutrition for good health and help keep children alert for good learning outcomes. Example of good choices are:

  • Walnuts and raw almonds (maybe after school since some schools are nut free),

  • apple slices,

  • bananas,

  • carrot sticks,

  • cheese,

  • grapes,

  • oranges,

  • plain yogurt.
