Pour snacks such as trailmix, Goldfish crackers, animal crackers, popcorn, fresh fruit, mini marshmallows, and pretzels into a waffle cone or sugar cone. You can also add pudding or yogurt. My son used to leave a lot of bread behind when eating a sandwich which was wasteful. I use to put peanut butter and jelly in a cone, he ate every bite! This is great no waste, less mess, no dishes!

  • Frozen grapes: place grapes on tray and put in freezer and serve

  • Crackers and apples

  • Yogurt Fruit Snack: Slice up any types of fruits you like: bananas, apples, strawberries, any type of berries, bing cherries. Add low fat vanilla or plain yogurt. Mix and let sit in the fridge until chilled. If you use cherries and strawberries, it turns the yogurt pink.

Here's a great after school snack for kids. It's amazing how much nutritious food kids will eat when you put it on a stick and let them dip it in sauce.



Combine yogurt and honey in a small bowl and stir until smooth. Thread fruit onto 4 bamboo skewers and serve with yogurt mixture.

PER SERVING: 104 Cal., 2g Fat (1g Sat.), 8mg Chol., 2g Fiber, 3g Pro., 20g Carb., 30mg Sod.

Safety tip: Snip the pointy end off the skewers before serving the kebobs to young kids. A nail clipper works well.
