Healthy Snacks For Happy Studying In St Paul

Healthy Snacks For Happy Studying In St Paul

Welcome to my Minneapolis children’s health blog. My fifth grader’s elementary teacher recently sent home a note encouraging good homework habits for all of her St Paul students. The note included this suggestion: ‘Eat a healthy snack before sitting down to study.’

My kids and I sat down to brainstorm some healthy snacks they could eat before beginning their homework each afternoon. After compiling our list we headed to our favorite Minneapolis grocery store to stock up on after-school snacks.

Here are my kids top ten healthy homework snacks!

Frozen grapes (or other favorite fruit)
String cheese
Fruit leather
Dried apricots
Nuts
Hummus with veggies
Yogurt
Celery dipped in peanut butter
Fruit smoothies
Popcorn

Minneapolis kids can focus better when they have healthy snacks handy. Another important thing to remember is that kids are more likely to eat healthy snacks if they can choose their favorites.
