Snacks for Busy Kids!

I don’t know about you, but my preschooler is a grazer. She does not like to sit and eat a whole meal at a time.

Healthy Snacks for Busy kids

I have decided to have choices ready for her so when she asks to eat, she can have one of the snacks that I “approve” of. (I do not claim to be the healthiest mom in the world, but I try to give a good selection).

Here is what what made for today.

  • 9 bean salad with Quinoa
  • cucumbers
  • cheese
  • kiwi
  • ham sausage (with no msg)
  • walnuts
  • grape tomatoes

Jane took out the plate whenever she was hungry. She nibbled and enjoyed and was a happy girl.

And I’m a happy mom!

Check out some of our Lovable Lunches that my older daughter Kate takes to school.

What are some of your children’s favorite snacks/foods?

Yum. I find that when it is things like that my kids eat more. Lots of little bits of healthy foods and they eat it all.

I'm very interested to learn more about your 9 bean salad. Do you have a recipe for that? Oooh and love those kiwis.Yum! Have to try this for my 2 year old snacker

Oh Marina, I wish I could take credit for the recipe, but I never could make one that everyone really enjoyed. The one we all like now is called 9 grain salad with Quinoa by Summer Fresh. We buy it at Costco. And Kiwi is so much easier to prepare using a cookie cutter. Just slice the kiwi (with peel on) and use a small cookie cutter to cut out the slices. No more yucky fingers!
