3 Healthy Snacks For Kids To Make This Summer

Summer time is just around the corner – it’s a great time to get creative with our children’s snacks!

Here are some healthy snacks for kids that are perfect for hot, sunny days:

Cool Summer Fruit Popsicles

What you need:

  • 1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
  • 1 peach, diced
  • 1/2 watermelon, pureed
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 handful fresh cherries, pitted and chopped

Prepare a dozen popsicle molds then divide the cut fruits to fill each mold. Pour watermelon puree to each popsicle mold, filling to the top. Place a popsicle stick into each one and freeze for at least 6 to 8 hours, or until ready to serve.

For easy serving, run each of the frozen molds under warm water for a few seconds before pulling out for kids to enjoy!

Sweet N Healthy Granola Bars

What you need:

  • 1 1/2 cups almonds
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (preferably sugar-free)
  • 2/3 cups pistachios
  • 1/3 cup Sukrin Clear Fiber Syrup
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds, chopped and cooked
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds, chopped and cooked
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, chopped and cooked
  • 3 tablespoons Sukrin Gold
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Melt the butter in a saucepan then add the Sukrin syrup, Sukrin Gold, ground cinnamon, vanilla extract and salt. Stir together thoroughly. Boil for 2-3 minutes until mixture has thickened. Stir in the nuts and cooked seeds, stirring to coat with mixture.

Remove from heat and place mixture in a 9×3 baking dish lined with parchment paper. Place another parchment paper on top and press to spread the mixture evenly to the baking dish. Cool for 10 to 15 minutes then refrigerate for 15. Slice into bars then refrigerate for another 15 minutes.

Store granola bars in an airtight container.

Easy Apple Cookies

What you need:

  • 1 apple (green or red)
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • Mini chocolate chips (preferably sugar-free)

Core the apple and slice into “circles”. Spread peanut butter on top of each apple slice then sprinkle with chocolate chips. Do this for each apple slice. Refrigerate for at least 5 minutes before serving for kids to enjoy more on a hot sunny day!

Preparing healthy snacks for kids isn’t complicated at all. If you make delicious, healthy snacks, they won’t turn to junk food anymore
