6 Real food snacks that your kids love {at least at my dayhome}

1/ Yogurt with Granola & Blueberries
We use Greek yogurt, then top with granola & blueberries.
2/ Frozen Yogurt
Try our easy go-to recipe...

4 cups frozen strawberries
3 Tablespoons agave nectar or honey
1/2 cup plain yogurt (non-fat or full fat)
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Add the frozen strawberries, agave nectar (or honey), yogurt and lemon juice to the bowl of a food processor. Process until creamy, about 5 minutes.
Serve the frozen yogurt immediately or transfer it to an airtight container and store it in the freezer for up to 1 month.
3/ Veggies {or pita} with Sweet Potato Hummus Dip
Hummus is a high protein dip that’s perfect for dipping cut up veggies or pita, some of us just eat hummus as is...we love it whichever way.  Recipe here.
4/ Strawberry Basil smoothie
I couldn't believe it...basil in smoothie...and they like it? That's the truth. This one is a keeper.

5/ Fruit  Kebabs {we add cheese for protein}
We usually save these for special occasions..
Cheese, sliced about ½ inch thick
Fruit slices
Wooden skewers

If using wooden or bamboo skewers, make sure all the splinters are off of them by rolling two together in your hands, or rub them over each other, as if you are sharpening a knife.
Cut the fruit that is not already small into 1-inch, or bite-size, chunks.

Slide fruit on
* this is an easy task for young kids.

 6/ Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet Potatoes
Sunflower or coconut Oil

  1. You may keep the skin on or off. Cut the potatoes in fry shaped pieces that are relatively similar in size.
  2. Lightly coat with some sunflower oil, salt and cinnamon.
  3. Preheat oven to 450F. Cook’s choice to line or not to line your baking sheet with foil or parchment paper...I don't.
  4. Preheat your baking sheet for several minutes before putting the potatoes on it.
  5. Place potatoes evenly spaced on the baking sheet and cook for 15-20 minutes, flip the fries and cook for about 10 minutes more.
  6. Remove from the oven when they are golden brown, crispy and cooked all the way through.
