Have a Snack Basket

I keep one of those little plastic baskets used for organizing in a cupboard that my kids can reach. This basket is filled with snacks that I feel they can eat without me knowing or are healthy alternatives to treats. We call it our snack basket. It is also a good tool to use with our toddler who likes to snack all day. We can put only a few snacks into the basket and when they are gone, then no more snacks!

We have a snack bucket! I keep it in the basement freezer. When the kids pack a lunch, they grab a frozen homemade brownie or cookie. It thaws by lunchtime, and then they bring home the plastic baggie for me to wash. I resist buying individually wrapped anything because of the cost and waste.
