Fun Summer Foods and Snacks for Kids

We are right in the middle of summer (and the heat is making sure we know it!) so if you haven’t already, now is the time to start having fun with some summer food! With the hot weather, summer is a great time for refreshing snacks. Here are some fun, refreshing and delicious snacks for you and your kids:

  1. Fruit pops: You can go out and buy ice pop molds that will allow you to create your very own ice pops! Let your kids choose which juice they want to turn into a delicious and healthy treat. It is easy as all you have to do is add juice, follow directions on the ice pop mold, put in the freezer for a while and then enjoy!
  2. Fruit on a stick: Fruit such as watermelon and cantaloupe are already a great summer treat. However, if you are bored of eating fruit with a fork, you can get a bit creative and have some fun by making a fruit shish kabob! Ideally, find a shish kabob stick that is not too sharp to decrease the chance of injury.
  3. Ants on a log: The classic ‘ants on a log’ is a healthy and yummy snack for any kid. If you do not know, ‘ants on a log’ consists of a stick of celery, peanut butter on the celery and then raisins on the peanut butter.
  4. Make your own ice cream sandwiches: Sure, anyone can go and buy an ice cream sandwich, but why do that when you can make your own! Turn a quick snack into a fun activity. The cookie parts are available to purchase and you can choose any ice cream you want!
