*Check out the fruit and veggie muffin recipe on: superhealthykids.com

Or the carrot zucchini muffins on cupcakesandkalechips.com


*There are numerous no bake energy bars and homemade granola recipes online. You can choose which ingredients your kids are most likely to eat.


Fresh Fruit Skewers


The kale and sweet potato chips and the roasted chickpeas can be made in an air fryer or regular oven.


*Cowboy salsa, aka Texas caviar, is easy to throw together by combining low salt canned items such as black and/or pinto beans, corn, chopped tomatoes, and chopped sweet onion, then add avocado, cilantro and lime juice. Drain the beans and corn. Use pita chips or whole grain chips for dipping.

Cowboy Salsa


Mix and match snack ideas by keeping cut fruit, fresh veggie sticks, nut butter, and cheese slices on hand as well as whole grain crackers, Greek yogurt and popcorn.


For nut-free substitutes (for peanut or tree nut allergies) you can try tahini (made from sesame seeds), sunflower seed butter, granola butter or soy nut butter.




***I know I have said this before in other posts but children under 4 years of age should not have whole nuts. Be wary of hard crunchy vegetables and fruit, and popcorn before age 2.
