The odds for them to have snacks was remote. Each family had to grow their own foods. Or pick things that were growing in the wild. If they would run out of foods during the winter; then the odds were high that they would die from starving!

They also had to have enough wood to keep themselves warm and able to cook, through winters.

Praying to God is the most important! God often helped!

There are plenty of snacks that children can eat for lunch that are healthy. Healthy snacks for children include fruits and vegetables, baked chips, and trail mix.
