When it’s your kid’s birthday, they may want to take some snacks to share with their friends at school commemorating this. You don’t want to serve snacks with too much sugar so as not to get the other kids too hyped up to continue learning
So here are some healthy birthday snacks for school you could prepare, with or without your child.
Decorate plain paper cups 12-oz in size with a photo of the birthday child, stickers or glitter and fill with the cups with homemade popcorn.
You could alternatively decorate miniature paper bags or buy popcorn bags or boxes in movie-theatre style.
Cut it into slices just like cake and sprinkle powdered sugar on top of the slices, serve with fruit salad for and the kids won’t even know the difference.
Cut up fruit into small cubes and put in cupcake wrappers for a more colorful, healthier version of a cupcake.
Layer your child’s favorite yoghurt flavor in clear plastic cups and alternate with fresh fruit like mangoes, strawberries or blueberries and top it off with a cupcake topper. Don’t forget to include spoons.
Put together colorful fruit kabobs using your kid’s favorite fruits for example kiwi, blueberries, melon, strawberries, grapes and pineapple and serve the kabobs with vanilla yoghurt as a dipping sauce.
– Dip strawberries in chocolate for a tasty treat
Bake using whole-wheat flour for a healthier snack not to mention you can use bananas, carrots or blueberries for added flavor and nutritional value. Ground flaxseeds are a nutritional addition to the muffins.
Slice fresh pairs up and put a few of the slices onto each plate and make the pear bread using vegetable oil and white whole wheat flour.
It should be noted that the more sugar you use the more it will taste like cake so if you want a better alternative for this use more pears.
Berries and Whipped Cream
Fill clear plastic glasses half way with an assortment of berries. A good example of berries to use would be blackberries, blueberries and strawberries; top them up with freshly whipped cream and everything is all set.
Strawberries and Cream Elves
Fill strawberries with a dollop of cream cheese that has been mixed with fruit spread and use chocolate chips for eyes.
