With all of the munchies that are going to be lingering around your home, make sure to take some time for some healthier ideas for the kids.
1. SNACK MIX – instead of an original Chex Mix, grab some peanuts, plain popcorn, dried bananas, dried apricots, whole grain cheerios and mix it all up for a healthier version of chex mix. Don’t add in the M&Ms or skittles – those are there to attract the children, my son goes STRAIGHT for the candies!
2. Fruit & Cheese Skewers – Cut up some different fruit options (and if you have some time, cut them into different shapes) and cheese and use unsalted pretzel sticks and make fun fruit & cheese skewers for the kids!
3. Peanut Butter & Celery is ALWAYS a hit at our house, and spice it up with the raisins for a classic “ants on a log”
These are just a few ideas – I’d love to hear your healthy kid snack ideas in the comments below!
