Want to step up your snack game, but need ideas? Summer camps know how to make snacks that keep kids energized throughout the day.
Peel a banana, cut the bottom so it’s flat, and stick a popsicle stick in the cut end. Then roll the banana in peanut butter. Top with your favorite toppings. Some suggestions include coconut flakes, chocolate chips, cereal of your choice, or even some crushed graham crackers.
Everyone loves a waffle cone. Make it a little healthier by filling it with chopped fruit like grapes, melon balls, berries, and sliced banana pieces. Add your favorite fruit.
On a hot day, there’s nothing better than a cold popsicle. Why not make custom popsicles at home in flavors you love? Get some popsicle molds and fill them with fruit of your choice. Some samples include strawberry kiwi flavor or pineapple mango. Once you’ve added the fruit, add your liquid. If you use juice as your liquid, it’ll be sweeter. Other options are milk or water.
Chop up some carrots and celery and pair them with a dip. Hummus and peanut butter are two options that pack protein.
Trail mix is a classic summer camp snack and it can be made in so many ways. Traditionalists without nut allergies can go with the tried and true mix of nuts, chocolate, and raisins. Other things to think about including in trail mix include yogurt bites, pretzels, marshmallows, cereal, and dried fruit.
Buy yogurt in a variety of flavors and spoon them out onto a tray in small dollops. Freeze, and then put in a storage container in the freezer. Next time you want a quick snack on a warm day, pull out a couple of these cool bites.
Muffins are a great option for any time of the day. You can make your own savory muffins, packed full of veggies and protein. Grab some muffin trays and chop your ingredients. Try veggie muffins, egg bite muffins for breakfast, or even some mega fruit stuffed muffins. Muffins are great because you can make them in batches and freeze any extras.
