Healthy Kid Friendly Snacks

I found some yummy kid-friendly recipes over at Kid Ventures!  The first one is:

Banana in a Blanket

whole wheat tortilla
1 Tbs. peanut butter
1 banana
1 tsp honey or syrup (optional)
1 Tbs of granola or other small cereal crunchies

Lay tortilla on plate, spread with peanut butter, sprinkle granola, then place banana on top.  Roll up.  Drizzle with honey or syrup and garnish with more granola.  I skip the last two steps, the roll up alone is awesome! 

Fruity Sweet Cones

sliced banana
cubed mandarin oranges
1/4 cup miniature marshmallows or chocolate chips
pineapple chunks
sliced strawberries
3/4 cup low-fat lemon yogurt

Instructions: Chop, slice, and prepare the fruit. Toss together with marshmallows or chocolate chips. Spoon mixed ingredients into the empty cone and drizzle with lemon yogurt.


  1. These look great! Susie posted last week that she has been putting Kenzie's morning oatmeal in a cone and she walks around with it. Great idea, too!
