Personalised Stylish Labels & Items for Kids

Blog

Kids love to snack and never more so than when we are at home every day. Snacks are tricky. You want them to be tasty but not packed with sugar and processed stuff. Here are homemade snacks ideas that my kids love. These will work great for school lunches, too, when kids are back to school! #dontstressit

DIPS: Creamy Pumpkin Hummus + Vegetable sticks

Dips are fun to eat, and they are a nice change from the regular sandwich. If you're open to trying a new hummus recipe, my kids love this fun twist with pumpkin. It has that perfect balance of sweet and savory.


SANDWICHES: Peanut Butter + Jelly + Apples

Sandwich is the first that comes to mind when making a snack. This version is yummy and healthy, no bread required!

CRACKERS: Gluten Free Quinoa Crackers

These are quick to make, packed with protein, extra crispy and go with all your favorite dips! Here's the recipe

WRAPS: Spicy Chicken and Salad Wrap + Homemade Popcorn + Berries

Wraps are a good alternative to sandwiches. There are plenty of options here. I usually go with chicken and vegetables.

HOMEMADE VEGGIE CHIPS: Healthy Zucchini Chips

These are gluten-and dairy-free, low in fat, crunchy, and so yummy. I love them as a healthier alternative to store-bought chips

HEALTHY SWEETS: Lemon Bliss Balls

These bliss balls are a bliss! So easy to whip up when you need healthy snacks and don’t feel like spending hours in the kitchen or putting the oven on. Check out this recipe by Additive Free Lifestyle.

SIMPLE: Fruit and Veggie Snacks

And finally, here are some healthy snacks that you don't really have to “make”. You can whip them up in just a few minutes and they are still healthy and tasty!

  • Celery sticks and carrot sticks
  • Avocado toast
  • Apple slices with peanut butter
  • A cup of berries with a spoonful of almond butter
  • Sliced veggies with any dip

BONUS RECIPE: When Nothing Else Works

Raw Almond and Coconut Bars

This is my go-to recipe when everything else fails! No cooking needed, and this bar only takes 5 minutes to make. Just give it some time to set in the fridge. It’s a great little guilt-free snack! The recipe is by Jo and Tracey from Additive Free Lifestyle.
