Colorful, Healthy, After-School Snack

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

Keeping up with after-school snacks is kinda hard for me. Especially because I want to try to make things healthy as much as I can around here. I don’t always succeed, but I’ve noticed that if healthy things are colorful, they are more interesting to my kids. :)

Frozen blueberries, small sweet peppers, frozen peas:

I’m missing the color blue in this rainbow of food…how ’bout a blue tablecloth? 😉

A little peanut butter slathered on some apple slices with a few marshmallows makes mouths happy. :)

For an after-school snack the other day, I decided to make little rainbows out of fruit with small bowls of cream cheese and marshmallow creme for dipping. They were eaten right up!
