You’re working from home and the kids are doing school from home, and your day will be busy enough without having to stop what you’re doing to make a snack every time your kids are hungry. With a little preparation, you can make snacks the night before or the morning of to have on hand when hunger strikes.
Get your kids involved in helping make some trail mix! Ask them what ingredients they like best, and pick them up when you’re at the store. Try raisins, Cheerios, M&Ms, mini marshmallows and pretzels. Nuts, peanut butter bites or seeds can be another good addition if your home doesn’t have allergies. Let the kids help you mix it all up. Make a big batch at the beginning of the week, and it will last until the weekend.
This makes for a high-protein healthy snack. Combine your kids’ favorite fruit with cheese cubes, and put them on a toothpick. Grapes or little apple cubes make for a great cheese combo.
They are a fun way to eat fruit. Choose your fruit and slice them into thin pieces. Strawberries, bananas, melons and kiwis are all good options for this. Place them on a bamboo skewer, and then store in the refrigerator until the kids are ready for them.
Take the classic ants on a log (peanut butter and raisins on celery slices), and jazz it up with different options. Your “log” could be a slice of celery or it could be a banana. A peanut butter topping goes great with raisins, granola, blueberries, chocolate chips, chopped strawberries, banana slices, pretzel pieces, dried cranberries, whipped cream, shredded coconut and so much more. If your kids aren’t a fan of sweets, go with savory and top your celery with cream cheese and sliced olives or cherry tomatoes.
Wash a bunch of grapes and pull them from the stem so they are not attached. Put them in the freezer, and pull them out when it’s hot and the kids need a little burst of energy. It’s a refreshing snack!
Other easty options to have on hand are pretzels and hummus, yogurt, fruit cups and veggie slices with dressing.
