HEALTHY SNACKS KELLY RECOMMENDS

CRMB_Sweet_Naturally_V2_140516I believe in providing plenty of fruit for my kids. I’m from California, so here’s my tip. California Raisins, they are an all-natural, dried-by-the-sun fruit you can feel good about sending with your kids as they head back to school. The ingredient list says it all: Raisins. They are also convenient and portable, which makes California Raisins a great choice for wholesome, healthy, on-the-go snacking. California Raisins come by their sweetness naturally. With raisins, the nutrition label tells a great story: zero fat, no cholesterol, no added sugar, plus fiber, potassium and iron, too.
 
Research suggests that among children, eating raisins as an after-school snack may prevent excessive calorie intake and may increase satiety when compared to other common snacks. For easy-to-make, healthy snack ideas kids will love, we have 5 new recipes using California Raisins. These snack mixes like Honey Nut Raisin Snack Mix and Crunchy Cinnamon Mix are really tasty and healthy and best of all, ready for lunch boxes, backpacks, your purse, or car.
