almonds walnuts are good for everyone including elders... kids can eat all the nuts.. yes nuts are very useful for kids as they are also called super food.. it's good because eating that you get almost everything body requires for growth... so make sure instead giving junk snacks trying giving Ur kids nuts which they like.. even in school snacks you can give them..
