Eating healthier is a popular New Year’s resolution for adults. But it is not only adults who can benefit from New Year’s resolutions. Kids can also make some small positive changes in their lives. One of the easiest ways for them to do this is to eat healthier snacks. Healthy doesn’t have to mean tasteless. I have found some wonderful healthy snacks for kids that will satisfy even the pickiest eater. When you are done sampling them, make your own New Year’s Resolutions for Kids craft.
