From the article:
Just like breakfast, lunch, and dinner, snack time rolls around every day. As parents, we want to give our kids a snack that is readily available, satisfies their hunger, and is made with wholesome ingredients. But for many of us it’s an afterthought.
As a working mom of three, I have quickly learned that preparation is key for everything, food included. No matter how well-intentioned I am in my thoughts about meals or snacks for myself and my kids, if I do not set aside time for preparation it’s all too easy to just grab some junk food.
That changes today! These power snack ideas are easy, fun, and wholesome. Now your kids will have a snack with a nutritious purpose.
Protein Rich Snack
For a protein-rich snack, I love Greek yogurt + almond butter + a drizzle of maple syrup. This combination tastes like cookie dough, thus earning the title “cookie dough dip” at our house.
I love skewering fruit on a stick.
On that note, it’s a good idea to wash and dry fruits when you get home from the grocery store. Contrary to popular belief, you can wash strawberries ahead of time. Not only will they last longer, but you will have fresh fruits ready to be eaten, making them even more convenient.
I also like making my own fruit salad cups. All you have to do is make a big fruit salad and divide it into lidded containers. For a cooler treat, freeze the fruit salad into popsicle molds!
