I have some easy, healthy, and fun snacks for your next play date.
Now that the weather is cooler, we will be hosting more play dates here at the house as opposed to meeting our friends out at the park, pool, or outside entertainment.
I thought I’d share a few ideas of healthy and cute foods to put out for the kids to inhale munch on as the moms chit chat!
#1: Peanut Butter Dipping Fun
Provide some peanut butter for dipping and some peanut butter friendly items like celery, apples, graham crackers, and bananas. Each kid can get their own little cup of peanut butter too – those individual ones would be great, and they could collect their dipping stuff from the main serving platter too!
Just about anything served on a skewer is irresistible to the kids!
I made these to include awesome vitamin packed fruits as well as protein rich ham and cheese for calcium.
Collect items for your skewer, such as grapes, pineapple, strawberry, ham, string cheese chunks, etc. Arrange in an adorably cute pattern.
Cut the pointy end off of the skewer, and serve!
#3: Fruit Flowers
These happy little flower snacks take less than a minute to throw together.
With a clementine orange arranged as flower petals, grapes as a stem and leaves, and some cereal beneath it all, a sweet and healthy snack is ready for as many as you need!
#4: Happy Friends
Create some happy little friends using some rolled up turkey or ham for legs, a slice of cheese for a body, carrot arms, banana hair, and blueberry eyes with a grape mouth.
You can make these guys with anything you have on hand. You will be a hit with your kids’ friends by offering them such a fun little friend for a snack!
