Christmas Snacks Not Loaded with Sugar

With Christmas quickly approaching, don’t get me wrong, I’m excited to bake Christmas treats with my kids, but with all the sweets that come around this time of year, I also like to find a healthy balance.

I don’t want to be the Grinch who stole Christmas, and I’m not against my kid having sweets here and there at Christmas events.

However, at home and during school with their lunches, I do like to have healthy sacks on hand and just because it’s the holidays, it’s not different.

This means, I work hard to make sure our christmas snacks are healthy and not loaded with sugar like frosting, cake, chocolate and sprinkles.

But healthy doesn’t have to be boring. Healthy snacks can be fun and festive too!

I thought this would be a challenge, but there are so many healthy Christmas snack options out there and they aren’t very difficult to pull off.

Whether you’re packing your child’s school lunch and want to slip in a fun holiday treat, or volunteered to bring a platter of Christmas snacks to their class party, I’ve got you covered.

These Healthy Christmas Snacks perfect for kids are super simple, look adorable and I promise, won’t have your kids bouncing off the walls one minute and crashing the next.

Most of the ingredients are natural flavors of berries and fruit, or even fun breakfast ideas not including donuts or cake like items.
