I’ve been on a mission to cut sugar out of my family’s diet, as much as I can, for the last few years. We’ve slipped up often but we are making progress. I thought for sure that my kids would push back but we have been able to find lower sugar snacks that they actually love. I have a few of our favorites to share with you. Seeing how excited my kids get about these healthier snack options makes me wonder why I didn’t make the change earlier. A big thanks to Stonyfield® Organic YoKids® for sponsoring this post so we can share some of our favorite low sugar snacks for kids with you.
Kids are ravenous by the time they get home from school and often still need energy for sports or other after school activities. If your kids are tired of the same snacks all the time, we’ve got a great list for you that will make you the coolest mom ever!
These yummy snacks are definitely kid approved and will hold your kids over until you can get dinner on the table. You can make these ahead of time in batches so you have them on hand. Have you tried any of these? We’d love to know which ones are your favorites in the comments!

Applesauce is probably something you are used to picking up at the store. There’s nothing like the smell of homemade applesauce cooking though and once you try this recipe and realize how easy it is to make homemade applesauce in the Instant Pot, you’ll never want to make it from scratch every time.
Cooking with kids is so much fun. I start my kids cooking when they are young and it is fun watching their skills develop in the kitchen. Cooking with young kids can be a bit frustrating for them if they can’t read the recipe.
There’s a fantastic solution for this. Cook by Colours is a fully illustrated cookbooks that lets even the youngest kids cook a recipe from start to finish on their own.
