Healthy Snacks for Kids

Do your children seem to want to snack all day long?  Now that it is winter and the kids are not quite so active outdoors their wanting a snack has gotten a little worse.  Although now it is out of boredom. Curbing their craving for a snack can be quite the challenge on some days.  That is why I always make sure I have plenty of healthy snacks for kids.

Healthy Snacks For Kids

There are are a lot of healthy snacks for kids available these days, but my preferred snack for them is still fruit. During the cold winter months some of their favorite fruits are not in season, this is why I like to keep plenty of canned fruits on hand by DelMonte.  Del Monte fruits and vegetables are grown in the best growing regions of the United States, providing consumers with a consistently quality product.  Del Monte canned fruits, vegetables, and tomatoes contain the same essential nutrients as fresh varieties. Their canned fruit and vegetables are picked at the peak of ripeness and canned on the same day so vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential nutrients are locked in – along with ripe, juicy flavors.

Del Monte’s tomatoes and peaches are grown in the prime sunshine of California’s Central Valley and are also harvested and packed using the power of the very same sun. Del Monte goes to great lengths to use renewable energy, and it’s something the company and you can feel good about.  Also, Del Monte grows their fruits and vegetables from naturally selected seeds that yield greater harvests, while using less natural resources.

Del Monte is currently hosting an “Add Some Garden” on Facebook. Visit the Del Monte Facebook page from November 5th through February 4th to enter the Del Monte “Add Some Garden” contest for the chance to win one of the many prizes available, including kitchen appliances, and $25 or $500 gift cards to Williams Sonoma.

There will be five phases during the contest in which Del Monte will feature a different canned variety every two weeks:

  • Green beans (November 5- November 18)
  • Corn (November 19- December 2)
  • Tomatoes (December 3- December 16)
  • Peaches (January 7- January 20)
  • Pears (January 21- February 3)

Fans will have five days during each phase to submit their best tips, and consumers will be able to vote for their favorite tip during the second week of each phase.

The five winning tips for each phase will then go head-to-head for a chance to win a Grand Prize culinary travel adventure, valued at $10,000, which will be announced February 15th.

The Del Monte product, information, and two gift packs have been provided by Del Monte.
