6 Fresh, Fun & Kid-Friendly Snacks

Come on … who says you can't play with your food?

Maybe you're a mama with little boys. Maybe you're a dad who's outnumbered by young daughters. Or maybe you're just a kid at heart.

Whatever the case may be, there's a lot to be said for taking life a little less seriously sometimes. In fact, today we're talking about lightening up – in more ways than one! Check out a few of our favorite ideas for fresh, fun and kid-friendly snacks filled with fruits, veggies and wholesome, protein-packed ingredients.

6 Simple Ideas for Snack Time
  1. PB&J for Night Owls & Early Birds. To make your own adorable “owl” snacks, simply swirl peanut butter and Rhubarb Strawberry Fruit Spread onto sliced, toasted English muffins. Add a couple of round banana slices and blueberries for the eyes as well as sliced strawberries for the wings and beak. (What a hoot, right?)

  3. Colorful Veggie Cups. Dollop a couple spoonfuls of Spinach & Herb Dip into individual small cups or shooter glasses. Fill 'em with fresh veggie sticks, such as carrots, celery and cucumbers.

  4. Sweet Banana “Sushi” Rolls. Lightly spread two bananas with peanut butter or chocolate hazelnut spread (or even Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheese Ball for a deliciously indulgent treat!). Roll in crisp rice cereal for the outer “rice.” Slice and serve with chopsticks for a takeout-style touch.

  5. Simple Mini Skewers. For savory after-school snacks, create cute mini kabobs with cubed cheese, cucumber slices, cherry tomatoes and sliced deli turkey. Sprinkle with a touch of Garlic Pepper Seasoning.

  6. Berry-licious Yogurt Bark. Always in a hurry? Spoon vanilla Greek yogurt into cupcake liners. Swirl each one with a spoonful of Rhubarb Strawberry Fruit Spread and sprinkle with fresh strawberries, blueberries and granola.
