Healthy snacks can give you the energy and nutrition your bodies need. Don't give in and dive head first into that bag of chips. Here are five easy, healthy recipes that will please you and your kids.

1. Homemade Fruit Snacks- Perfect for a little bite of sweetness, but packed with fruit and veggies your kids usually would dismiss.

2. DIY Granola Bars- You can try these five varieties or great creative and mix in your own favorite flavors.

3. Frozen Yogurt Strawberries- It doesn't get any easier than this. These cool little treats are great on a hot afternoon, and you won't be able to eat just one.

4. Baked Sweet Potato Tots- A great option for an appetizer type snack, these tots are crazy healthy and deliciously good.

5. Fun Fruit- Sometimes a different presentation can change everything for a finicky eater. Try these cute caterpillars or some perfect penguins.
