When the summer heat is peaking and the kids are craving a refreshing snack, it’s very easy to get into the habit of giving yummy popsicles and ice cream treats. Those definitely have their place (I mean it is summer after all!) but shouldn’t be the number one option on a daily basis. Although they are refreshing, they’re also full of sugar and empty calories. Today I’m sharing five snack ideas that are simple, nutritious, and equally enjoyable for kids and adults. With school just around the corner, these also make great lunchbox stuffers too!
IDEA #1 – APPLE SLICES & ALMOND BUTTER
IDEA #2 – RASPBERRIES & MINI CHOCOLATE CHIPS
IDEA #3 – PEAR SLICES & COTTAGE CHEESE
IDEA #4 – “ANTS ON A LOG” (CELERY, PEANUT BUTTER & RAISINS)
IDEA #5 – STRAWBERRIES, BLUEBERRIES & COOL WHIP
All of these food products can be found at Trader Joes except for the Enjoy Life chocolate chips. This brand’s chocolate is not only tasty, but free from gluten and 14 other common allergens… I highly recommend it. Click on this store finder link to locate an Enjoy Life retailer near you, or to order from them directly.
Please share below what some of your healthy goodies are, because I’d love to try them out. Happy snacking!
