Looking for some quick and easy healthy Christmas snack ideas for you and your kids? Then look no further!

There is nothing more enjoyable than spending time with your kids over the Christmas break. A time of joy, fun and laughter, so why not spend some time in the kitchen and add to the holiday cheer!

While cookies and gingerbread houses are fun to make (and eat), they are loaded with sugar and don’t contain a whole lot of nutrients. To avoid the sugar overload and to enjoy some balance this Christmas we have created a short list of healthy snack ideas.

These healthy snacks are perfect for Christmas parties, lunch time treats or on the go snacking. Suitable for toddlers, school kids and adults, everyone can enjoy the nutritious benefits from our snack approved list.

Why Early Days Foods Love Healthy Christmas Snacks

  1. Nutritional Fun – These Christmas snacks are not only fun to eat, they’re also super nutritious filled with lots of vitamins, protein and healthy fats.
  • Easy to make – Quick and simple to make with the kids at home, suitable for a school snack or children’s party. Your kids can help choose what snacks to make and enjoy taste testing along the way.
  • Encourage healthier eating – If you struggle to get your child to eat healthier foods or they are reluctant to try new things, adding it in as part of an activity is a great way to get them involved and encourage them to try new foods.

Below you will find 5 healthy and easy Christmas snacks to be enjoyed for all ages! Get some Christmas music on and have some fun making these cute and tasty Christmas snacks.
