Snacks are one of the most important parts of a child’s routine, it may be not for some of the adults but children do like it a lot and is essential too because children tend to burn more calories as per their intake and as a result, their food intake also has to be healthy and heavy so that they feel full for a longer period of time and get sufficient amount of energy with taste.
How lockdown has affected children?
Well, children are one of the sufferers of lockdown but it is essential as per the current situation and most children would be missing the street foods or the snacks that were bought for them from outlets in the locality.
When it comes to consuming food most of the children are very picky about what to eat and what to not but some of them will eat anything you provide but it is up to the parent to manage the food habits of the children so that the child can lead a healthy lifestyle in the future.
So, in this blog, we are going to have a look at a few of the healthy snacks for children during this lockdown.
