How to choose the snack for school

The choice of the snack to do at school is important for children's health.

The snack should in fact respond to some fundamental characteristics: be varied (not always the same), be tasty for the child, be chewable, provide the right amount of energy and be in the right amount, so as not to interfere with the main meal which is lunch.

Thinking about all these features, we thought of some suggestions on what could be the right snack for school, a mix of compromises between all the qualities listed.
