School’s out for summer, and it’s time for the kids to be a little self-sufficient during the day.
I’m at work the vast majority of days in the summer, but that doesn’t mean my kids can’t eat a healthy meal and snacks while I’m at work.
One of their favorite things is apple slices with assorted toppings.
I slice the apples into rounds because, let’s face it, the knife is really sharp, and it makes me nervous if they use it if I’m not in the house. They do the rest. They love to slather an apple round with peanut butter. Then, they top it with raisins, almond slivers, coconut shreds, chocolate chips and dried cherries.
They also love celery sticks filled with cream cheese and topped with taco meat or buffalo chicken.
They also love to snack on fresh strawberries mixed with blueberries, Greek yogurt topped with granola and bagel thins spread with peanut butter.
If I can’t be at home, then I’m happy to know they’re eating healthy snacks that will sustain their energy throughout the day.
