Ksuperfood snacksids need plenty of fuel for growing bodies and brains, so it’s normal for them to require the occasional snack. While snacking has a bad reputation, it doesn’t have to. The recipes laid out here will give you a chance to provide your child with plenty of tasty treats that are actually good for them.

Simple Granola Bars

These bars use honey, peanut butter and oats for a filling and nutritious snack. Keep some on hand for those hungry kids after they get home from school.

Makes 10 bars

2 cups rolled oats

½ cup creamy peanut butter

½ cup honey

Put the honey in a small pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for one minute.

Remove the honey from the heat and stir the peanut butter in until it’s melted. Pour over the oats and mix quickly until the oats are covered. Spread in a parchment lined 8×8” pan and flatten, pressing hard.

Refrigerate the  bars until cold and then cut into 10 pieces.

Fruit Kabobs

Make healthy snacks fun by putting them on skewers!

Serves 4

1 cup grapes

1 apple, cut into chunks

1 banana, cut into chunks

1 cup strawberries

Any other fruit you might have on hand.

Stick the fruit onto bamboo skewers in alternating order. If you plan to have them out for more than a few minutes, dip the bananas and apples in water with lemon juice to prevent them from browning.

You might need to be sneaky the first time with this pudding, but once kids taste it, they’ll love it and ask for more!

Serves 2

1 cup strawberries

1 cup avocado chunks

1 tablespoon honey

Blend all ingredients until smooth and serve.
