I always get stumped on what to make my kids for snacks. I don’t want to it to be super difficult to put together either. It needs to be quick and easy. I have been looking all over online for some new snacks I could make my 2 1/2 year old and almost 1 year old for after naps. I am sure they get tired of crackers and store bought pudding. I know I do. You will be known as the mother of the year after making these snacks for your kiddos. Hope they enjoy them as much as my kids have. Here are 4 snack ideas for you to enjoy.
1: Chocolate and Bananas
1 T semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ of a banana sliced thinly
1 T of non-fat vanilla yogurt
Melt chocolate chips in a small bowl in the microwave. Drizzle over your sliced bananas and top it all off with your yogurt.
2: Yogurt bites
1 small container of our favorite yogurt
Cover your cookie sheet with wax paper. Take your yogurt and drop a tablespoon of it on your cookie sheet. Place the tablespoons of yogurt about 2 inches apart. Fill your pan up, and place in freezer for up to an hour. Serve to your kids.
This is a great one for babies that are just learning to pick up finger foods.
3: Apple Pie Sandwiches
2 slices of bread
Take your bread and butter both outside sides. On top of the butter sprinkle cinnamon on top. Place 3 tablespoons of applesauce in between the two slices of bread. Cook just like a grilled cheese sandwich until both sides are brown and crispy.
4: Peanut Butter Yogurt fruit dip
1/2 cup of greek yogurt
½ cup of your favorite peanut butter or almond butter
Combine it all in a small bowl. Serve with any sort of fruit your kids like to dip with. My kids love to dip apples in this dip.
