Hooray! Summer is here and school is out. In the summer months, kids are spending so much more time outside and take snacking to a whole new level.
We suddenly faced with feeding kids ALL day.
Here is the roundup of 3 of The Best Healthy Summer Snacks for Kids!
1. FROZEN WATERMELON POPS
Watermelons and summer go hand in hand. It's just so refreshing to bite juicy fruit on a hot day. Watermelons make fantastic snacks for kids as they quickly replace lost water and keeps you hydrated. It has a high water content and also delivers many other important nutrients, including lycopene and vitamin C. Watermelon Pops are so easy to make but the simple addition of a stick to these frozen wedges of watermelon make them far more appealing to little eyes than chopped up pieces of the fruit.
2. FRUIT POPSICLES
Frozen popsicles like these just scream summer, and they can be a great way to serve up a whole bunch of goodness to your kiddos in the form of a treat. You can try pretty much any combination depending on what fruit you have, is in season or what’s available where you live. Fruit popsicles use the whole fruit, rather than just the juice so kids get 100% of the nutrients in the fruit (juicing removes the fiber and some water-soluble vitamins).
3. FRUIT SORBET
When you have a glut of fresh summer fruit, sorbets are the answer. You don’t need a recipe — just a basic template to follow and a little creativity. Fruit sorbet is super-easy to make, even if you don't have an ice-cream machine. Fruit sorbet is different than ice cream because there is no dairy in the recipe. Because the main ingredients are just fruit, it isn’t as creamy as ice cream. Sorbet has more of an icy refreshing texture. Experiment with other seasonal fruits to make your own delicious sorbet that will surely love by your kids!
These snack ideas will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. Not only will the kids love eating them—they'll also enjoy making them! Aside from they are very easy to make, they're all quite healthful, so you can feel good about sharing them!
