Yummy Snacks to Make Your Kids Smile
Let’s start with a classic snack of apples and cheese. Our Apple Cheddar Almond Snack Mix is sure to please! Mix it up and make it colorful with red and green apples, or try swapping out traditional cheddar for something adventurous like Pepper Jack.
Continue to keep it cool with two delicious smoothies. Smoothies are a great choice when your children just can’t wait – they whiz up in seconds and are easy to double for a crowd. The Blueberry Yum Yum Smoothie is guaranteed to put a smile on their faces!
Try this Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie for a twist on a classic kids lunch. Use fresh strawberries when they’re in season in addition to the bananas.
These Air Fryer Cheese Sticks require a little more prep work, but when the kids have a “rumbly in their tumbly” this snack will surely satisfy. Think mozzarella sticks with a cheddar twist. Great with tomato sauce, ranch dressing, or any creative dipping sauce your children come up with.
