What is Nutritionist

As for snacks, they play an important role in a child's diet by providing additional nutrients and energy between meals. Healthy snacks can help bridge the nutritional gaps and prevent excessive hunger, which may lead to overeating during mealtimes. Some examples of healthy snacks include fresh fruits, yogurt, nuts, whole grain crackers, and vegetable sticks with dip.

Remember, when offering snacks, it's important to consider portion sizes and choose nutritious options. Avoid sugary snacks, processed foods, and excessive amounts of unhealthy fats. Encourage water as the primary beverage and limit sugary drinks.

In addition to the three meals a day, one to three snacks can be provided based on a child's appetite and activity level. However, it's always best to consult with a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian for personalized advice and recommendations tailored to your child's specific needs.
