After school snacks are kind of a big deal in the Smith household. When I was little, my mom always had something special waiting for me for when I got off the schoolbus. Most of the time, there was baking with fruits and vegetables. I rode the bus for forty-five minutes after school let out, and I can tell you that by the time I hit the door, I was always hungry for what my Mom was preparing. Some days, she would have everything ready so that we could make my snack together. That was always a lot of fun for me and no doubt has inspired my desire to create in the kitchen!
We’ve carried on the same tradition with Aiden. As an active junior kindergartener, he comes home hungry and excited to munch on something healthy and delicious. He’s a huge fan of Kraft All Natural Smooth Peanut Butter, which he spreads on toast and eats with a banana.
On this special day after school I surprised him with a kitchen activity, the same way my mom used to. I measured and prepared all of the ingredients and set out a clean working space for him to create a healthy snack. Boy was he thrilled and ready to jump to the task at hand!
He shows us just how easy and fun to make these Blueberry Coconut Peanut Butter Snack Bites really are!

After he made the Blueberry Coconut Peanut Butter Snack Bites, he was very proud of himself – as was I. We let them cool in the fridge and then enjoyed them together. He was very happy to share with his little sister, Abigail and with his daddy too. It’s neat to watch him in the kitchen, developing his confidence and unique style. As a recipe developer myself, I love sharing that aspect with him.
