Choose one of these healthy bedtime snacks to offer a simple, yet nourishing snack to end the day. (Nutrition info will vary based on which snack you choose.)




  1. Choose one bedtime snack or choose two and let the child pick.
  2. Serve without distractions, then brush teeth and continue with the bedtime routine.


Keep the food simple and straight forward and not their favorite food to help you know if the child is actually hungry.
If there’s regularly more than 90 minutes between dinner and bedtime, it’s possible your child will need a snack before bed.
Choose 1 or 2 options for bedtime snacks in your house so you know exactly what to offer if the subject comes up—and you can avoid a lengthy negotiation of which foods the kids can have.
Try “you can have a banana or be hungry for breakfast”. (Obviously insert whichever food you are using if it’s not a banana!)
Include 2 food groups if your child is regularly really hungry by bedtime, including protein and/or fat to keep those bellies full.
