I wish that I was one of those mothers who made fun, creative snacks and meals for my kids. Since I don’t claim to be June Cleaver (of course), I don’t. But I want to so that should count for something, right?
I went looking around the web for cute meals and snacks to feed to my three-year-old since I’m out of ideas for lunch. The amount of peanut butter and honey sandwiches that he eats is almost shameful.
Here are some ideas to use if I ever discover my inner Martha Stewart.
Cute Food for Kids uses green apples, mini Babybel cheese, and fruit leather to make this adorable Hungry Hungry Caterpillar snack. Adorbs.
KanuHawaii.org found this snack on Luz’s Unique Creations‘ Facebook page. You can’t get much healthier than fresh fruit! It looks so easy to do too but I know that if I tried it would look like one of those “Nailed It!” photos.
Banana dogs?! Yes! The Village Cook posted this genius snack masterpiece that I will be trying soon. For this I don’t have to be Martha Stewart. What kid doesn’t love peanut butter and jelly (or banana) and hot dogs? Amazing.
Frozen yogurt dots. They’re like Dippin’ Dots but healthier! I think this one is also idiot proof and I may need to try it soon now that the weather is warming up.
Put this in the Why Didn’t I Think of That?! file. Apples with peanut butter is a favorite snack in my house. Putting them together as a little car? Genius
Okay, so this one might not be healthiest one of the bunch but you could make it healthyish by using turkey hot dogs, whole wheat pasta, and homemade cheese sauce. Throw in some broccoli and you’re golden. Green = healthy you know.
Cute, cute, cute! Strawberry ladybugs! I don’t do licorice so I would use fruit leather for the legs and spots but this is such an adorable idea.
Finally, so simple yet immediately recognizable. Dr Seuss hats are perfect for the little reader in your home. This page has several cute Dr Seuss inspired snack ideas.
