“Mom, I’m hungry.”
It’s the sentence I probably hear most often throughout the day. Can you relate? Are your kids always hungry too? Or maybe they’re picky eaters and you’ve run out of snack ideas to feed them. Whichever way your kiddos swing, all moms need a few more quick snack recipes at their disposal – especially healthy ones! My children like a variety and if I give them the ‘same old’ too often, I run the risk of burning out a tried and true snack. The trick is to keep them on their toes with an array of delicious, nutritious snacks. To help you out in that department, I’m sharing five simple and healthy snacks your kids will love to eat. Okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but I’m being optimistic friends! Keep on reading for a list of tasty snacks to try this week.
Today, La Cuisine d’Hélène is serving up a savoury Greek Yogurt Jalapeño Guacamole that keeps them munching and crunching on the colours of the rainbow. Easy Baby Meals is sharing a wholesome recipe for Homemade Herb Crackers – which would be a great accompaniment to Hélène’s guacamole. Amee’s Savory Dish is mixing up the classic PB & J classic with a twist that’s sure to be a hit! Delightful Adventures baked up crunchy and slightly sweet Simple Granola Bars (so much better than store bought!), and I’ve got a stacked sliced apple recipe I know your little ones will eat right up.
It’s time to shake things up for snack time, Mommas! Bookmark, pin and scroll on down below for links to all of these delectable snack recipes, so the next time your child says, “Mom, I’m hungry,” you’ll be more prepared than ever!
