Let's get a list going so we have new ideas to try when we want to shake things up a bit.

I'll start!



*Flattened Banana (from TJ's) with soynut butter roll up

*Freeze dried fruit / veggies

*Celery with cream cheese and raisens (or peanut butter/soynut butter)

*Soft corn tortillia with refried beans & cheese roll up or quesidillia

*vanillia yogurt with fresh fruit

*carrots and hummus

*fruit jerky

We usually make smoothies with fresh strawberries, fresh blueberries, bananas, low fat milk and orange juice and a little bit of raw sugar as a breakfast drink and for snacks we cut up papaya and cottage cheese and squeeze lime on the papaya or substitute it with apples.

my daughter loves cottage cheese so we eat low fat cottage cheese and then a fruit on the side like peaches or grapes

Looking for a quick, simple snack you can feel good about?

Try Delightful Peanut Butter Dip with fresh fruit or veggies!



Delightful Peanut Butter Dip

Makes 9 servings

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup lowfat, light vanilla yogurt

Favorite fruit (apples?) 3 cups

Celery 3 cups



Using nonfat vanilla yogurt can cut the fat of peanut butter in half!

1 Tablespoon peanut butter is 100 calories and 8 grams of fat.

1 Tablespoon of Delightful Peanut Butter dip is 70 calories and 4 grams of fat.



Refrigerate and use dip within 2 days.



Mix together yogurt and peanut butter until thoroughly blended.

Chill until ready to serve.

Wash fresh fruits & veggies and prepare for serving.

Serve with dip.

YUM!!!!

We love baking so almost every day we make some sort of healthy muffin or bread. Other than that, I leave a big plate of fruit out all morning and a big plate of raw veggies out all afternoon, the kids snack on those throughout the day, with the baking for their lunch. It's a little different set up but it works really well. For on-the-go snacks we eat dry cereal, dry fruits, grapes, and for the occasional bribe those fruit to go bite size snacks. (She thinks it's candy)

Whole wheat tortilla with a little bit of cream cheese, then a slice of cheese. I heat it up in microwave to make the cheese soft and then roll it up! My 2 1/2 y.o. loves this one!

*We also go to the local farms around snack time. The kids snack on and pick fresh fruit.

*My kids also love Nori (seaweed snack)

*My boyfriend makes wholesome waffles once a week (with wheat germ, squash puree +/ banana) and freezes them. For breakfast or snack we cut the waffles into strips and let them dunk in yogurt.

*We mix together peanut butter, flax seed meal and add a little honey into a brownie pan. Cut it up into brownies and freeze. The kids love it.

*We make a ton of different fresh squeeze juice, add a little lemon and yogurt then freeze into popsicles.
