I’m sure we’re all on the same boat when it comes to feeding the kids, especially during summer. Getting our kids to eat is one of our dilemmas. They like to play around, without giving a care whether they’ve eaten or not. For them, it’s always about fun, but for us, we want to make sure they meet their nutritional needs and not let them be hungry. It’s your duty as a parent to feed your child, but what if they don’t want to eat?
To help you out, here are 10 of our kid-friendly snacks that you can feed your child this summer vacation.
Throw in a few pitchers of that delicious Frozen Fruit Coolers to quench your kids’ thirst. They’ll love drinking some and asking for more after playing around under the sun. Put them in Glass Bottles if you plan to bring them for your outdoor picnic.
Peanut butter may be loved by many but kids usually hate celeries (veggies in general). The best solution to make them eat their greens is to incorporate one of their favorite spreads. Make Peanut Butter Celery Sticks that your kids will start to appreciate.
Your kids are attracted to a variety of colors, so make a little effort in making a cold goodie perfect for the summer heat. Rainbow Popsicles is a combination of blended strawberries, banana, mango, orange, pineapple, beet, spinach, and yogurt for a colorful, nutritious-packed ice-cold treat.
Nachos is one of our all-time favorite snacks even by the kids, especially on summer backyard or outdoor picnics. Make it juicier with Apple Nachos. Just drizzle it with chocolate, peanut butter, or caramel to add more flavor.
It may be hard for some kids to eat food especially if there are veggies in it. Most of them like to munch on junk food such as potato chips on picnics. Why not bake Sweet Potato Chips and make their summer eating healthier?
Ever made a pie where you won’t have to bake it? Ice Cream Pie is your simple and tasty treat. With graham cracker crust and ice cream as your main ingredients, you will have a heavenly pie in no time.
Toasts are your go-to snacks for kids, as they would normally eat it. It’s summer so make their food more exciting, cheesy, and healthy by doing Tomato Basil Mozzarella Toast.
Want some summer-blended beverage that your kids will enjoy? Put strawberries, banana, cream cheese, yogurt, and almond milk together and you’ll have Cheesecake Strawberry Smoothie.
Kabobs are not only for meat and veggie lovers. Your kids will appreciate and love the milder version which is the Fruit and Cheese Kabobs. They actually love to eat anything on a stick, but this time it’s easier to make and a better alternative than other on-stick fast foods.
Frozen Yogurt is a healthy dessert that your kids will be happy to scoop on. It’s composed of Frozen fruit, honey, vanilla, and Greek yogurt as your basic ingredients.
Summer is truly a fun season for the kids. Let them explore the outside or play at home or backyard. Let them be kids. That doesn’t mean though that you have to neglect their nutritional needs. They may be picky and would not want to eat especially when busy playing around, so don’t be afraid to experiment on the foods, putting on new ideas, and following tried and tested recipes that can go a long way to feed your child. Remember to cut or slice your fruits, veggies, and cheese on a Premium Bamboo Cutting Board. These kid-friendly snacks will let them fully enjoy the summer, full and healthy.
