While at school, your kids have a long day of playing, learning, and building an appetite. Although the old milk and cookies will do the trick, snack time can be a lot more healthy and creative.


Here are some parent and kid approved snack ideas to keep everyone happy, and your kids stomach’s occupied until dinnertime.

Peanut butter banana roll ups
  • Peanut butter sandwiches are a popular snack for a reason. Parents love the protein, potassium, and vitamins their children receive and kids don’t mind eating it! Try using a whole wheat wrap for healthy bite sized pieces perfect for your kids.

  • A great way to fill the kids up until dinner time! You can mix any fruits and vegetables you have in your fridge, add milk (almond or coconut is the healthiest), ice and voilà! Check out these tips and tricks to transition your child to drink healthy smoothies.

Fruit on a stick
  • A fun and creative way for kids to get their daily fruit servings in. Add your child’s favorite fruit and dip it in yogurt and coconut for a little twist. TIP: Use a straw instead of a wooden skewer to prevent any injuries!

Homemade veggie chips
  • This snack is so delicious your kids won’t even mind that you tricked them so they aren’t eating greasy potato chips. Veggie chips are healthy and easy to make too! Simply coat the vegetables with olive oil and spices, bake in the oven for about 12 minutes and you’re done.
