Apples are an excellent choice for a snack.

Healthy Snacks - Age 5-7

Eating a balanced diet is one aspect of Health Education taught to children in KS1. In this quiz, written specifically for children in years 1 and 2, we look at snacks and how to incorprorate them into a healthy diet.

Sometimes we can get hungry between our meals. If that happens you may want to choose a snack.The choice you make can be important. It's very tempting to always choose chocolate, biscuits or crisps as a snack. This is OK sometimes, but fruit it a much healthier option, so try to pick that at least as often as you choose a less heathy snack..

So, let's see if you know which snacks are good for you and which are not. Good luck!

1.
When should we eat healthy snacks?
Whenever we want
Never
Between our meals if we are hungry
In the middle of the night
It is okay to have a healthy snack between your meals as long as it is not too close to the next meal as it might stop you from eating your meal if you are full
2.
Should you eat a snack before breakfast?
Yes - if no one else is awake
No - you should have a snack with your breakfast
Yes - if you are hungry
No - breakfast is the first meal of the day
You should always eat breakfast in the morning as this is the first meal of the day and will give you the energy you need to have fun and learn. If you are hungry mid-morning then you could ask for your first snack of the day
3.
Which of the following is a healthy snack?
Apple
Ice cream
Chocolate bar
Crisps
An apple is a great choice for a healthy snack as it is a piece of fruit that contains vitamins needed by the body. An apple is also a good size for a snack as it will not be too filling between meals. Crisps, chocolate and ice cream are not healthy snacks as they contain lots of sugars and fats
4.
Why are healthy snacks good for us?
They make us thirsty
They make us look nice
They give us energy
They keep us quiet
Healthy snacks can give us energy if we are feeling tired and replace the vitamins that we need to stay healthy
5.
How many snacks should we eat a day?
Up to 2
3 to 5
5 to 7
As many as we want
We do not have to eat snacks every day but it is okay to eat between 1 and 2, usually between breakfast and lunch and then between lunch and evening meal. We should avoid eating snacks too early in the morning or too close to bedtime
6.
Why should we not choose snacks that are high in sugar?
They are too filling
They might rot our teeth
They taste bad
They are expensive
We should try and avoid eating too many sugary snacks as sugar is not needed by the body and it can rot our teeth. Instead you should choose snacks that are low in artificial sugar
7.
Which of the following is NOT a healthy snack?
Kiwi
Carrot sticks
Banana
Sweets
Sweets are not a healthy snack as they are high in sugar and can rot your teeth. They are also not very filling and you may still feel hungry afterwards. A good choice for a healthy snack is a piece of fruit or some vegetables
8.
Which of the following is NOT a snack?
A yoghurt
Hotdog and chips
Some chopped-up vegetable sticks
A piece of fruit
A snack is something we eat if we feel a little hungry between meals. It should be smaller than a meal, so hotdog and chips is not a snack
9.
What do you do if you want a snack?
Wait till your next meal
Go to the shop
Ask a grown up
Help yourself
If you are feeling hungry and would like a snack, you should tell the grown up who is looking after you. They will be able to decide if it is okay to have a snack and help you choose one
10.
If you are eating a healthy snack at school and your friend says they are hungry what should you do?
Tell a teacher
Give them someone else’s
Ignore them
Share yours
Although it is nice to share with your friends, you should always tell a grown up if someone is hungry before giving them food as they may not be allowed to eat the same foods as you
