Use Ingredients Your Kids Already Enjoy

While your children may be hesitant to try snacks that are labeled “healthy” or feature ingredients they are unfamiliar with, there are plenty of ways to get your kids to indulge in some healthy snacks.

Preparing their snacks at home and using ingredients they already enjoy from other dishes is a great place to start. For example, if they love our cinnamon brown sugar craft butter on their cinnamon rolls, they will be more likely to try some fresh fruit with that same delicious butter. Or, you can encourage them to try some drizzled over air-popped popcorn. Better Butter is the perfect way to turn healthy options into irresistible snacks for kids.

Get Your Kids Involved in Snack Prep

Another great way to get your children to branch out and try more healthful snacks is allowing them to help prepare or cook them. There is something truly rewarding about creating food in the kitchen, and even more so when you’re cooking with family.

Depending on your child’s age, they can help with anything from peeling fruit and veggies and stirring the pot to melting or mixing in the Better Butter craft butter. From trail mix tossed with a little vanilla craft butter to our Healthy Oat Zucchini Muffins made with our honey sweet craft butter, allowing your child to help prepare their own snacks is a great way to encourage them to try new things.

Focus on Natural Ingredients

One of the best things you can do to ensure your child is enjoying healthy snacks is to focus on using all-natural ingredients. From fresh fruits and veggies to whole grains and real dairy, snacks are better for everyone when they don’t include artificial colors, flavors, or crazy ingredients that are impossible to pronounce.

That’s where Better Butter comes in. As all-natural craft butter, Better Butter is the perfect ingredient to entice your children into enjoying their fruits, veggies, and whole grains. Just a dollop of Better Butter can make your life easier and snack time more enjoyable.
