Got a teenager who is constantly hungry? Check out this mega list of healthy snacks for teens (and tweens) for ideas they’ll love.
“I’m basically always hungry.” That’s what my 15 year old said to me the other night as he stood in front of the open refrigerator searching for something to eat–approximately 10 minutes after he last ate something.
The teen (and tween) appetite surge is real.
And it can be crazy! Like eating-a-yogurt-and-banana-immediately-after-two-platefuls-of-dinner crazy.
With one teen in the house (and a tween whose appetite is growing too), I’m always looking for things to buy and make so we have plenty of healthy options.
For ideas, I cast my net out to the always-helpful Real Mom Nutrition Facebook community. I got so many good suggestions, I decided to share them in one giant list, along with my own favorites too (plus recipes!).
So if you’re looking for healthy snacks for teens, I hope this list will help. You can also get a free printable of this list by tapping the button below.
Print it out, ask your teen go through it and mark what sounds good, then take it to the store so you can stock up!
