Easy and Fun Healthy Snack Ideas

When craft time can double as snack time, kids can not only express their creativity, but are excited to eat what they make. Which is why we love this owl breakfast! One of the very first blog posts I wrote – years ago! – An owl’s breakfast was included. And I still think it’s fun to fake it! But how can you not make owls when they are so simple and so cute.

Feeding snacks is second nature to our babies.. their little tummies and growing bodies are always hungry! However, sometimes, a snack can satisfy kids’ hunger for a moment, only to leave them hungry an hour later. The key is not just to look at the amount of a snack, but also what the snacks are made of. A snack that satisfies you in the moment but will last for several hours afterward will be a combination of fiber (for volume), fat (for satisfaction), carbs (for energy), and protein (for building). When all of these are present at breakfast, I can guarantee those kids will be satisfied. These owl rice cakes fit the bill.
