Welcome to my Los Angeles children’s health blog. My fifth grader’s elementary teacher recently sent home a note encouraging good homework habits for all of her Manhattan Beach 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 Los Angeles grocery store to stock up on after-school snacks.
Here are my kids top ten healthy homework snacks!
Frozen grapes (or other favorite fruit)
Hummus with veggies
Celery dipped in peanut butter
Los Angeles 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.
