It seems like each and every day there’s someone hanging on my legs begging for a snack to hold them over until dinner time. But the big question is…what in the world should I feed them that will fill up their tummies just a bit and yet won’t spoil their dinner? Ugh.
I want healthy snacks that I can whip up in a flash…and I want the kids to be able to help prepare them too! That’s when I turned to Kraft Foods. They have an incredible slew of recipes for kids, safety tips for cooking with kids and even a few ideas on how to burst that lunch box monotony we so often find ourselves in.
Here’s just a few recipes and ideas that you can add to your repertoire of after school snacks for your staaaaaaaarving children…
18 Triscuit Crackers
1 packages (16 oz.) of Cheddar Cheese
3 fresh strawberries, each cut into 3 slices
1 kiwi, peeled and cut into 9 pieces
SLICE the cheese into small squares (to fit the cracker).
TOP the crackers with the cheese.
ADD the fresh fruit slices on top of the cheese.
What you need:
MEASURE drink mix into cap to 1-qt. line (1/2 cup). Empty into blender container.
ADD remaining ingredients; cover. Blend on high speed 10 sec. Turn off blender. Stir with spoon; cover. Blend an additional 5 sec. or until smooth, using pulsing action.
SERVE immediately. Store leftover slush in freezer.
BEAT pudding mix and milk in large bowl with whisk 2 minutes.
PLACE cookies in resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Use rolling pin to crush cookies.
ADD cookies and Cool Whip to pudding; stir just until blended.
SPOON into 9 small paper or plastic cups.
INSERT wooden pop stick or plastic spoon into each for handle. Freeze 5 hours or until firm.
All of these recipes would be great all throughout the summer too!
