7 of Our Favorite Healthy Food Hacks for Kids Eat Right Month

August is "Kids Eat Right Month" and we've got some quick and easy tips for you!

August is Kids Eat Right Month and we're working together with PediaSure Sidekicks to bring you quick and easy ideas to help your kids eat more of the good stuff.

Sneak in Some Extras

Check out PediaSure Sidekicks Smoothie Mix. You can see the ingredients and nutritional information here.

The smoothie mix is made from real dried strawberries, bananas, apples and sweet potatoes. You can mix it with any milk for a quick and easy smoothie or sneak it into other foods to add some extra nutrients.

Here are a couple of recipes we've tried:

Frozen Berries and Grapes

We love our stash of frozen grapes and berries for a quick sweet treat. These are great on a hot day or an easy after school snack.

Frozen Grapes! Keep a stash of your favorite frozen fruits in the freezer for a quick and healthy snack for the kids!

Yogurt Pops

While you're at it, toss your squeeze tubes of yogurt in the freezer (opt for a healthier lower sugar brand). These are our favorites.  It's the perfect frozen yogurt treat!

Build a Healthy Snack Kit for Travel

Genius! Use a tackle box to fill with a variety of healthy quick snacks.

Switch Out the Spaghetti

Trying to work more veggies in? Try switching out your traditional noodles for spaghetti squash for a dinner. It's a different texture but my kids love it - just be sure to prepare a hearty spaghetti sauce.

Read the labels on store bought spaghetti sauce. You'll be surprised how many have added sugar or high fructose corn syrup.
