Most of today's parents are totally confused about, well, everything having to do with their children. But parents shouldn?t be confused about their child's diet. Which snacks are really healthy for your kids? Here are a few great picks:
Ice Cube Trays: Not the trays, but what goes inside them. Try some frozen green grapes and 100 percent fruit juice frozen in ice cube trays --these are easy and nutritious.

It?s just another name for peanut butter on a celery stick with raisins on top.
Pretzels: Make sure your child is old enough to chew them up. Buy low-fat and low-salt versions.
Low-Fat Cookies: They come in all shapes and sizes. Try low-fat animal cookies.
Cookie Sweetened with 100 Percent Juice: It's true. If you offer your child these types of cookies, they can barely notice the difference.
Fruit: My kids will not grab a piece of fruit no matter what I do or where I put it. They will eat a piece of fruit if I peel and cut it up. Take an extra minute and use miniature cookie cutters to cut the fruit into various shapes. Too much trouble? No problem: Use the cookie cutters and let them peel off the skin on each piece.
Veggies: If your kids won't eat them, have handy dips available and a "dipping they shall go."
