Fun Summer Snack Ideas

Leave a comment

Summer is just around the corner and soon the summer adventures will begin. Bring along a fun and healthy snack that your kids will love.  Let them help you make it – this will allow them to choose their favorites and you know they’ll eat it. Make it fun and tasty – use the fruits and veggies they like most and use them to design a fun snack!waffle fruit cone

  • Fruit Cones – Let the kids fill waffle cones with the fruit they like inside, cover with saran wrap and pack in a cooler. This gives your little ones a fun snack that they’ll love!  Or add a little light whip cream to the top and you’ve got yourself a healthy dessert option for the whole family!
  • Mini Gold Fish Pizzas – Take a slice of bread and use a cookie cutter to cut the bread into a fish shape (or the shape of the cookie cutter) and make your own pizza! Bake at 350 for 10 minutes! This is a great opportunity to add some carrot red or orange peppers to make Nemo!      
  • Chocolate Hazelnut Apple Rings – Slice your favorite apple and cut out the core leaving you with an apple ring. Here’s the best part – spread with Jif Chocolate Flavored Hazelnut Spread (or any spread your family enjoys) and top with granola.  These go great with school lunches and are great summer snacks!
