Summer Blog Challenge, Day 55- 3 Easy & Healthy Snacks for the Kiddos

Today's prompt is to tell about 3 easy & healthy snacks for toddlers or children.  One of our go-to healthy snacks in this house is apple slices with peanut butter.  We love that nifty little gadget that lets you core and slice an apple all in one swift whack. ;) We plop a dollop of peanut butter in the center of a bowl and then arrange the apple slices around it. Then you just dip and snack.  Sometimes we make it a little extra special and sprinkle mini chocolate chips over the peanut butter.  (Ummmm... this is also one of my favorite snacks, so it is adult friendly too?) 

We also like to do vanilla yogurt "sundaes".  We scoop vanilla yogurt into bowls, and then we each top our's with whichever toppings we prefer.  Granola, chocolate chips, banana slices, a squirt of chocolate syrup, pecans... Or a combination of any of these. ;)

And one snack that we especially enjoy during these hot summer days is frozen grapes.  Just rinse off and drain your grapes in a colander, dry with a paper towel, and freeze in freezer bags overnight.  The next day you have a healthy and refreshing snack! 

What are some of your go-to healthy snacks for your family?


  1. Yummy you just made my mouth water. I TOO LOVE FROZEN GRAPES!

  2. The sundaes would be something that both my daughters would enjoy creating and eating. I'll have to try frozen grapes. Never have done that before.
