3 Cool Snack Ideas for Kids

For Spanish please click here


Now that most kids are back to school, it's a good time to start looking for fun and yummy snack recipes. My kids are always hungry after a long day at school, so I want to try some new recipes this year.

I found these three at Family Fun Magazine and wanted to share them with you (used with permission, of course):

School Bus Sandwich

Bus Sandwich

Isn't it cute? Here is how to make it:

  1. Cut a slice of bread into a rectangle, reserving a strip of crust.
  2. Trim a slice of yellow cheese to fit the bread as shown.
  3. Cut another slice of cheese for the hood.
  4. Use the reserved crust for a fender.
  5. Cut headlights and grill strips from white cheese and set them in place.
  6. Use the pointy end of a grape tomato for each red light. Slice more tomato into a stop sign and smile.
  7. Finish with black olive tires, trimmed to lie flat, and pupils (you can use a straw to cut it off).

Cucumber Roll-ups

Cucumber rolls

Here's an easy recipe to prepare with your kids.

  1. In a small bowl, stir together 2 ounces goat cheese, 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill, and 1/8 teaspoon salt.
  2. Cut 12 1-inch-long strips of red bell pepper.
  3. Use a vegetable peeler to thinly slice a large cucumber into 12- 1  1/4-inch ribbons.
  4. For each roll-up, place 1/4 teaspoon of the cheese mixture at one end of a cucumber strip, press a pepper slice on top, and roll.
  5. Secure the end with a dab of cheese.

Tuna Canoes

Tuna Canoes

Protein and veggies, a great snack for after school.

  1. Fill celery sections with your child’s favorite tuna salad. Try my (no mayo) Mexican tuna salad.
  2. Top each with a few thawed frozen peas.

Happy back to school!
