Here is a selection of ideas for 20 fun and simple snacks!
For Lunch boxes
Homemade Cheerio – Cranberry – Chocolate Bars from Busy Kids = Happy Mom – These look yummy, a great treat for a lunchbox snack.
Homemade Goldfish Crackers from Boy Mama Teacher Mama are a great idea, especially as we don’t get goldfish crackers in the UK!
Healthy Chocolate Muffins and Mini Cheese Crackers from Mummy Musings and Mayhem – The muffins in particular look amazing!
Edible Fun: Bento from Mama Miss for simply lovely snacks, and make sure you click all her animal snack ideas too because they are just wonderful!
Homemade Granola Bars from Sun Scholars are ideal for lunch boxes and look yummy!!!
These fab new cheddar cheese Sticks and Patz from Mu (follow them on facebook) are fantastic snacks on the go. The cheese is tasty mature cheddar that is just conveniently cut and wrapped into sticks which are yummy as snacks on their own, or circular slices with are great for quick sandwich making and for making faces (think raisins, chopped apple, ham, etc!!) Mu kindly sent us some samples and Jake and Poppy both loved them, I did too, and Im a bit of a cheese snob!
Always a winner – Tried & True: Ants on a Log from PlayDrMom
Sandwich in a Cup from My Buddies & I; seriously love this idea; when you’re at the end of a shopping week and have very little in the house and you offer your kid a sandwich and they look so disappointed… this is the perfect way to brighten their faces!!
Fruit & Coconut Balls from Mama Musings and Mayhem – these look delightful, a great snack for boosting energy in that afternoon lull…
“Threading cheerio necklaces is a fun game on a rainy day, let the little lovelies sit and make necklaces before eating them!! Instead of just giving a child a boring bowl of Cheerios with milk for breakfast, save the Cheerios for snack time after school and pop them in a little bowl mixed up with raisins, sunflower seeds or any other dried fruit and seeds they like and serve alongside chopped fruit or grapes or berries. This works for breakfast too if you have time for a finger food buffet…” and,
“Raw veg and fruit (don’t overdo fruit, we need to train our taste buds to enjoy less sweet flavours too) with some nuts (older kids) or carbs – homemade flapjacks, perhaps, or have some dairy – yogurt plus berries or cheese and apple. You can eat virtually every vegetable raw except white potatoes. Courgettes [zucchinis] are really nice in tagliatelle strips (use a veggie peeler) as are carrots and sweet potato – it makes a cool pile of ‘raw spaghetti’ – great for little hands”
