Healthy Kid-Friendly Holiday Snacks

December 12, 2013

The Holidays don’t always lend themselves to healthy eating practices, but that doesn’t have to be the case this year!  We always encourage getting your kids involved with the food that they eat, so this holiday season why not spend some quality time in the kitchen making some of these kid-friendly – and most importantly, healthy! – holiday-themed snacks.

1. Banana Snowmen
