Stabilizing blood sugar levels in kids from hard places can empower them to have more stable moods and optimal cognitive functioning. High protein snacks and a glass of water every 2 hours is a simple way to empower your child.

Here are some ideas for high-protein snacks:

  • Nut butters on apples, crackers, or veggie sticks.
  • Beef jerky. (Some kids may be sensitive to the chemicals used to preserve commercial products. Look for preservative free varieties or make your own.)
  • Hard-boiled eggs.
  • Cheese sticks.
  • Protein smoothies/shakes.
  • Greek yogurt and fruit.
  • Protein bars.
  • Veggies topped with cream cheese or hummus.
  • Meatballs.
  • Edamame.
  • Cold meat like grilled chicken or ham.
  • Trail mix with nuts and seeds.
  • Grain-free granola.
  • Toasted chick peas.

What are your go-to protein pick-me-ups?
