Healthy Snacks for Picky Kids

IMG_4198 IMG_4203 Some of my kids favorite snacks:

Actually saying “favorite” is probably not entirely true since their favorite snacks would be cookies, candy, or cake. I’ll say these are the snacks my kids will actually eat since they are picky. ūüôā

1) Apple slices with PB

2) Apple slices with cheese

3) Ants on a log (celery, PB, raisins)

4) Light Cool whip with sugar-free pudding sprinkled on top (you can mix it in also)

5) Applesauce jello (I use raspberry jello)

6) Cut-up Peppers (orange, yellow) with Hummus dip

7) Cut-up prunes (not joking!)

8) Cuties (sweeter than oranges and easier to peel)

9) Yogurt and Cottage cheese mixed

10) Frozen fruit (in a bag in freezer section) mixed with white grape juice






Dried Fruit Mix

IMG_7598I try to feed my kids healthy things, but they are so picky. All they want is teddy grams, cookies, and crackers. I recently discovered something they really like.

Fruit Mix




-Dried pineapple

-Add walnuts if you kids are old enough

Tip: While they are busy eating their healthy snack sneak a handful of teddy grams for yourself!

Fourth of July Cake

 Nothing is better than when a little girl gets to help her grandma make 4th of July cake. White cake with cool whip. Strawberry and banana stripes and blueberry square at the top. Make a Independence Day dessert with your kids. You could use raspberries also for the red stripes. Explain how the American flag came to be and why we celebrate each year.

Snack dude

¬†Snack Dude allows you to add healthy snacks to him and kids are having so much fun they don’t realize they are eating something good for them. Snack ideas: raisins, almonds, sunflower seeds, cheerios, soy nuts, and a few chocolate chips.
