We all know how busy families are these days and kids are always on the move! With busy schedules and tons of activities, these 5 Snack Ideas for Kids That Are Super Easy will help to keep them healthy and filled up! Who doesn’t want to spend more time together instead of constantly making food and snacks for the kids?!
1. Veggie Cups
It doesn’t get much easier than this! Grab some disposable cups and fill them with about 2-3 tablespoons of ranch or blue cheese dressing. Next, fill it up with lots of yummy veggies! Things like sticks of celery, carrots, or anything else your kids may like will be perfect! And with the ability to quickly make individual servings, nobody will be fighting for “sharing” a snack bowl!
2. English-Muffin Pizzas
Cut the English Muffins in half and toast until golden brown. Next, add sauce, cheese and toppings and heat back up in toaster until the cheese is melted. Now, all you have to do is place the muffins on a plate, cover with another and tape close. Bam! You have an easy, portable snack that the kids can help to make, too!
3. Fruit Parfaits
Scoop 2-3 tablespoons of yogurt into a paper cup. Slide a bunch of apples and pears and toss them with lemon juice to keep them from browning. Place them in the cup along with the yogurt and you have a delicious fruit parfait that the kids will be asking for over and over again! Change it up with raspberries, strawberries or blueberries and it will never be the same!
4. Mini Sundaes
Create a buffet-style mini-sundae bar and the kids will absolutely love it! For a quick movie night snack, or a hot, mid-summer day delight. Who doesn’t love an ice cream sundae? Pre-scoop ice cream into disposable cups and fill other cups with a variety of toppings. Let the kids get creative and they are going to have fun memories of summer!
5. Smoothie Creamsicles
Whisk together two 5.3-ounce containers of vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt and 1 cup orange juice. Divide between six 3-ounce disposable cups and freeze for 30 minutes. Insert popsicle sticks and put them back in the freezer until they are fully solid. Peel off the cups and they are ready to go!
