Every kiddo will eat something if it has the word cookie in it, right? Apple slice “cookies” are a healthy, easy option that your kids will enjoy. All you need to do is slice up an apple in round slices, spread peanut butter across the top, and add toppings - chocolate chips, raisins, and almonds are some of our favorites.
Yogurt with Fresh or Frozen Berries
Yogurt with berries is a great way for kids to get their probiotics and nutrients! It is also a very easy option when you’re on the go. All you need is to have your little one’s favorite yogurt on hand and sprinkle some berries on top and voila! The perfect afternoon snack and it only took you two minutes.
