Tip of the Day
Do your kids come home from school with the munchies? It is normal for children to want a snack after school, but as a parent, you might not always have time to prepare a healthy snack for your child. Depending on your child's age, teach your child some easy and fun snacks that require little or no adult supervision:
- Snack Kebobs. Cut raw vegetables, fruit and low-fat cheese into chunks. Skewer them onto thin pretzel sticks.
- Banana Pops. Peel a banana, dip in yogurt, and then roll in crushed breakfast cereal and freeze.
- Peanut Butter Balls. Mix peanut butter and bran or cornflakes in a bowl. Shape the mixture into balls with clean hands. Then roll in crushed graham crackers.
- Ants on a Log. Fill celery with peanut butter and arrange raisins along the top.
