Healthy Snacks for Hip Hop Baby Kids!

A lot of New Year's resolutions have been broken by now, but what about the one to continue to keep your family eating healthy? That resolution should be year round. Parents magazine recently posted a few great snack ideas that we thought we should share with you!

1- Veggie Dip- cut up vegetables into slices and serve with hummus.

2-Turkey Tortilla- Place deli turkey, low-fat mozzarella, and lettuce on a whole wheat tortilla. Roll tightly, seal, and refrigerate. Cut into 1-inch slices.

3-Delicious Smoothies- Blend a banana with one cup nonfat milk and two tablespoons Ovaltine. You can add variety by mixing in other fruits, yogurt, and peanut butter.

4-New Take on Yogurt- Mix low-fat vanilla yogurt with low-fat granola and dried cranberries.

Our favorite is the turkey tortilla- let us know if you try any of them, we'd love to hear from you!!
