You know how it is, when your child gets home from school or a sports related practice, they are “starving” like they haven’t eaten in days. Well, you don’t want to totally ruin their dinner, so you opt for a small snack. May as well make some cute and fun snacks, while making them delicious and maybe even nutritious as well.
Let’s start off with a creative snack burrito, fun to make and eat as well!
Roll up a banana, peanut butter and jelly, or peanut butter and honey in a tortilla. The tortilla works as the bread and makes for a scrumptious snack burrito.
Next up, how about some Sour-Patch Kids Grapes? Try rolling your green grapes in Melon Fusion (or whatever type of Jell-O you prefer) Jell-O powder for a healthier alternative to the sweet candies.
Try an apple sandwich. After taking the core from the apple, slice into 1/4 inch or so slices, smother with peanut butter and chocolate chips or whatever you’d prefer in your “sandwich”, top with another apple slice and bam! Apple Sandwiches.
Banana hot dogs, just add banana, hog dog bun, jelly or Nutella. This sure will get your child interested in healthy snacking!
Here’s a fun alternative to the boring ole sandwich, sandwich kabobs. Making them even more fun, use a cookie cutter to cut your bread and cheese into fun shapes. Add everything you child loves on a sandwich to your kabob sticks, and you have a fun snack your child will be sure to love.
Afternoon snacks don’t have to be boring pizza rolls thrown into the microwave; they can be fun and healthy! Let your imagination run wild and with a little help from your kid, these will be snacks they’ll be begging you for.
