KID-FRIENDLY SNACKS

It's that time of the year again when the kids go back to school and the moms have to figure out what in the world to give their kids for lunch and snack.  Sure, you can buy lunch at school but lately, the menu at my children's school has not been so appealing nor child-friendly.

Here are  few snacks that look great and rather easy to make!


Chocolate and Banana

This quick and easy bite-size snack is a tempting choice for kids and does a great job at satisfying adult-sized chocolate cravings.  >





Turkey Rollups

Satisfy your salty, crunchy, and savory cravings in one punch with this quick snack.




 

Strawberry and Cream Cheese Sandwich

Sliced strawberries and reduced-fat cream cheese come together in a sandwich for this quick and healthy lunch-box treat.






Quick Kebabs

Kids and adults alike will appreciate this skewered snack with bite-sized fruits like grapes, pieces of cantaloupes and pieces of cheese if you like.






Devilish Egg

A hard-boiled egg is a protein-packed snack on its own — give it a little more pizazz with a bit of mayo and mustard on top.





Citrus Berry Smoothie

This meal-in-a-glass is bursting with berries and orange juice, healthful sources of carbohydrates and powerful antioxidants. Let your kids add their favorite berries to create a taste they'll enjoy

(My 7-year old made himself this delicious smoothie.  He cut up a   banana, some strawberries, blueberries and I helped him pour in just a little bit of orange juice and mix it all in the blender and BAM a delicious smoothie that took less than 7 minutes to make!)





Turkey and Cucumber Salad Wraps

These turkey wraps are a light and easy on-the-go lunch.  You can substitute the cucumbers for tomatoes or anything else your child might like with turkey.





"Sushi" Surprise

Offer an unexpected twist on an afternoon snack of raw vegetables — wrap them up in bread to look like sushi.
