Healthy Snacks Kids can Learn to Make

Here are some healthy snack ideas that kids can make with a little supervision:

  • Fruit skewers: Kids can cut up fruit (such as strawberries, pineapple, and grapes) and put them on skewers for a fun and colorful snack.
  • Yogurt parfaits: Layer yogurt, fruit, and granola in a clear cup for a healthy and delicious snack.
  • Ants on a log: Spread peanut butter on celery sticks and top with raisins or other dried fruit.
  • Trail mix: Kids can mix together their favorite nuts, seeds, and dried fruit for a nutritious snack that’s perfect for on-the-go.
  • Smoothies: Kids can help blend up a smoothie with their favorite fruits, yogurt, and milk or juice.
  • Veggie sticks with hummus: Slice up vegetables (such as carrots, cucumbers, and bell peppers) and serve with hummus for a satisfying and healthy snack.
  • Homemade popcorn: Pop some popcorn and add a sprinkle of herbs or spices for a tasty and healthy snack.
  • Banana oat cookies: Kids can help mix together mashed bananas, oats, and a little honey or maple syrup for a delicious and nutritious snack.

Remember, it's important to supervise kids in the kitchen and teach them about kitchen safety before they start cooking.

About the Author: Yvonne Wonder

As the founder and managing director of Destination Sitters, LLC, a national hotel and event babysitting service, and the mother of two children, I strongly believe that family comes first. I personally needed babysitting when I moved to San Diego 14 years ago. Like most parents, I assumed there were standards for temporary babysitting; in reality, there are no state standards or licensing requirements for temporary babysitting. The idea for Destination Sitters was born! I wanted to Give Parents Peace of Mind® when traveling with their children, so I created strict screening requirements for the sitters we refer. There is nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting great professional help to care for your children, especially when traveling away from home. I and my partners, along with our office staff, have that one goal in mind with everything we do. Through the years of working with children, I have been inspired to write three books, and this blog for parents’ and children’s wellbeing. I believe the best way to teach a child is leading by example, with love, honesty, integrity, compassion, perseverance, and personal responsibility. Learning these values and teaching children that all women and men are equal will encourage them to dream big to be anything they want to be! An entrepreneur for over 35 years, I previously spent years running a construction and design company with two offices in California and built million-dollar estates and remodeled existing ones. For three and half years, I was one of the primary designers on HGTV’s Curb Appeal. I have also been published in books, magazines and newspapers, and have been a featured designer in multiple showcase houses.
