Vacation time is here and the kids are either at home, at camp or at their grandparent’s house being spoiled rotten. Between all the fun times outside or binge watching TV, be sure that their diet still stays healthy and nutritious. General super foods that can be translated into snacks for kids are peanut butter, fruits, vegetables, oats, provisions and of course healthy dairy like yogurt. Here are just a few snack ideas you can try to spruce up these super foods and give the kids something healthy and fun to eat on the go.
- Apple slices with peanut butter and granola
Like a mini but super healthy pizza! Feel free to add chocolate chips for some sweetness.

- Fruit and cheese kebabs
Whatever fruits you have at home, put them on a kebab and serve them!
- Homemade granola bars
Packed with lots of ingredients to keep their energy up, these granola bars look expensive and are really easy make.
- Rainbow veggie plate
Some kids don’t like to eat veggies but maybe it’s just the arrangement of them on the plate that turns them off. Try this instead!
