Nutrition For Kids: Healthy Camp Food - Nutritious Snacks For Summer Campers

Posted on Jul 25, 2008 by Maggie LaBarbera

Have you checked your child's summer camp? Just a thought, I was at the gym and saw the little group of campers marching to the park for a picnic. When I asked what the kids would be eating, sandwich, chips, cupcakes and juice.

It got me thinking. Chips could be crunchy carrot sticks, cupcakes could be sliced apples and well, juice could be flavored water. Kids are getting messages from all over and forming associations between food and memories. Check and see what types of snacks your child is getting at camp?

Why don't we give them some fun memories with healthier foods.

Picnic and carrot sticks! Fun, friends and apple slices. We got to help them see fun and healthy foods in the same sentence.

I call it marketing a healthier child.
