Summer is right around the corner – it’s a great time to get creative with our kids’ snacks!

Here are some healthy kid-friendly snacks that are perfect for hot sunny days:

Fresh summer fruit popsicles

What do you need:

  • 1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
  • 1 peach, diced
  • 1/2 watermelon, pureed
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries
  • 1 handful of fresh cherries, pitted and chopped

Prepare a dozen popsicle molds, then divide the cut fruits to fill each mold. Pour the watermelon puree into each popsicle mold, filling to the top. Place a popsicle stick in each and freeze for at least 6 to 8 hours, or until ready to serve.

For easy serving, run each frozen ramekin under warm water for a few seconds before removing for children to enjoy.

Sweet N Healthy Granola Bars

What do you need:

  • 1 1/2 cups almonds
  • 1 cup of walnuts
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (preferably unsweetened)
  • 2/3 cups of pistachio
  • 1/3 cup Sukrin clear fiber syrup
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds, chopped and cooked
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds, chopped and cooked
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, chopped and cooked
  • 3 tablespoons of Sukrin Gold
  • 2 butter spoons
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Melt the butter in a saucepan, then add the Sukrin syrup, Sukrin Gold, ground cinnamon, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir well. Boil for 2-3 minutes until the mixture has thickened. Add the cooked nuts and seeds, stirring to coat with the mixture.

Remove from heat and place mixture in a 9×3 baking dish lined with parchment paper. Place another parchment paper on top and press to spread the mixture evenly in the baking dish. Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes then refrigerate for 15. Cut into bars then refrigerate for another 15 minutes.

Store granola bars in an airtight container.

easy apple cookies

What do you need:

  • 1 apple (green or red)
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • Mini chocolate chips (preferably sugar free)

Core the apple and cut it into “circles”. Spread peanut butter on top of each apple slice, then sprinkle with chocolate chips. Do this for each apple slice. Refrigerate for at least 5 minutes before serving for extra enjoyment for the kids on a hot sunny day.

Preparing healthy snacks for children is not complicated at all. If you make delicious and healthy snacks, they will no longer become junk food.
