Dr. Lynn Wagner joins Living with Amy with some quick, wholesome snack ideas and shares some tips to packing the perfect lunch.

Some tips to get started:

Let kids build snacks on their own – When kids help in the kitchen, they feel a sense of pride and ownership in the food they’ve made. Try this with your picky eaters!

Try not to restrict too much – instead, substitute with healthy alternatives. This can be as simple as swapping out processed fruit snacks with a small serving of dried cherries. Make your own fruit and yogurt parfaits for a sweet, cool treat instead of ice cream.

Be patient – Healthy changes take time and gradually introducing some of these snacks is a great way to get the whole family on board!
