Snack Time Ideas!

I remember as a child that snack time was the best. My mom would sometimes have a special snack for us. Here are some ideas for fun special snacks.
-Silly Sandwichs: one piece of bread with peanut butter on it. Make a face or design using whatever “toppings” you want, ie. chocolate chips, raisins, marshmallows, m&m’s, coconut, peanuts.  Whatever is in the cupboard!
– Fruit cup.  My grandmother’s recipe is the best:1 large can of fruit
2 bananas
2 apples
1 pear
1 can frozen strawberries

Mix all together including the juice from the can of fruit & the strawberries.  The best summer dessert!

– Apples and peanut butter
– English muffin pizza: one half of an English muffin with tomato sauce and cheese
– Mud pies: chocolate pudding with crushed Oreo cookies
– Stuffed caterpillar: celery stalk with peanut butter or creme cheese.  Add raisins for eyes.
-Fruit sundae cones: ice cream cone filled with fresh fruit
– Cheesy chili popcorn: Parmesan cheese, chili powder, and popcorn
This is a great time to include your children in what they want to eat. Starting children off early with eating healthy will help them as an adult with healthier eating habits.
