Happy and Healthy Holiday Snacks

healthy holiday snacksThe weather outside is frightful…and honestly so are many of the snacks we eat this time of year. Obviously, ‘tis the season to indulge in fun foods, but it’s also smart to model healthy eating behavior for your teen that shows eating healthfully doesn’t have to be boring.

Make the most of a study break with a round or two of one of these stress-busting games while you roll out one of these 10 festive study snacks for teens that also pack a nutritional punch!

  1. Pomegranate seeds – Crammed with antioxidants, these crunchy yums make an awesome and festive topping for oatmeal or yogurt — or just eat them right out of the tub.
  2. Popcorn – Air popped popcorn is an awesomely healthy snack for its low calories and high fiber, but you can up the taste and nutrition by mixing in some protein – think nuts or chopped, dried fruit.
  3. Baked kale chips – Kale is all the rage these days, but if your teen isn’t into a salad, try lightly drizzling the kale with olive oil and salt and baking in a 350-degree oven for about 10 minutes.
  4. Citrus fruits – Miss your summer berries and watermelon right about now? The great news is that oranges and grapefruits are at their juicy peak, and taste just like candy.
  5. Hot chocolate – You won’t see this on every list of healthy holiday snacks, but we think it’s got a lot going for it – for one thing, those antioxidants in dark chocolate! Choose a low-sugar mix and use nonfat milk or almond milk or soy milk to up the calcium and Vitamin D.
  6. Fun veggies– Surprise the study group with a creative presentation of raw veggies. We love this vegetable menorah and tree. You’re never too old to play with your food!
  7. Trail mix – A perennial fave, make your winter trail mix extra festive with red and green chocolate candies and craisins.
  8. Pizza bagels – Make your own with whole wheat bagels or muffins, topped with lycopene-packed marinara sauce and low-fat calcium-rich mozzarella cheese.
  9. Dip and dippers – Try to keep it healthy with non-creamy dips like hummus (mix in some sundried tomatoes for extra festive flavor) or salsa and offer baked tortilla chips and veggies.
  10. Cookies – Yep we couldn’t forget those! Homemade treats beat most store-bought cookies any day, and you can make them even more healthful by substituting whole wheat flour for half the flour and adding in raisins, nuts, oatmeal and other nutritional superstars.
