Healthy Snacks For Happy Studying In Colorado Springs

Healthy Snacks For Happy Studying In Colorado Springs

Welcome to my Denver, Colorado children’s health blog. My fifth grader’s elementary teacher recently sent home a note encouraging good homework habits for all of her Colorado Springs 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 Denver, Colorado 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
Hummus with veggies
Celery dipped in peanut butter
Fruit smoothies

Denver, Colorado 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.
