20 Summer Snack Ideas

one of things on my list to get ready for summer was to stock up on healthy snacks. and i was asked what kind of snacks i get for my family.

well…i wish i could say i was one of those amazing moms that always gives her kiddies organic foods, only fruits and veggies and no-sugar snacks. but i think i mentioned before that i am food challenged. i can’t even grocery shop. and my idea of a healthy snack is anything that isn’t candy or a dessert. (probably need to learn more about that) i am however trying to change. it is tough. i do have a few snack staples that are easy for me to prepare as well as take on the go. they all pretty much double as lunch foods, because when we are out, i can never get my kiddies to sit still for a meal. they constantly go back and forth from the activities to get food. here are our favorites:
• ham or turkey cold cuts rolled-up.
• cheese chunks
• baby carrots
• strawberries and blueberries
• celery with peanut butter and sprinkles
• graham crackers
• Flipsides pretzel crackers
• Yoplait Smoothies from Costco
• Homemade Chex Mix
• sandwiches cut with cookie cutters
• edamame
as long as i cut up the veggies and fruit in bite size pieces as soon as i get home from the grocery store, we tend to choose these snacks over the sweets.
i also found these fun snack ideas online…my kiddies will love these. afterall, food tastes better when it looks fun.
PB and Strawberry Crepes, Safari Dip, Crunchy PB and A wrap,
Fruit and Cheese Kabobs, Blueberry Banana Stacks, Fruit Sundae Cone,
Sweet Potato Chips, By the Seaside Sandwich, Tasty Tic Tac Toe
happy snacking,
