Healthy Kid-Friendly Holiday Snacks
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
How cute and fun are these banana snowmen?! They’re easy for your kids to put together, and it is a sure-fire way to get them to eat their fruits! For instructions, visit Spoonful.
2. Grinch Fruit Kabobs
Perfect to snack on while watching one of our holiday favourites, these “Grinch kabobs” are easily put together with a grape, strawberry, slice of banana and a mini marshmallow. For full instructions, check out Nourishing Minimalism.
3. Veggie Christmas Tree Platter
Have your kids help you put together this delicious Christmas tree veggie platter. Chop up broccoli, cauliflower, and yellow bell peppers and put together with fresh cherry tomatoes, pretzels and your favourite healthy dip!
4. Frosty the Bagel
