Snacks provide a great source for energy for your little ones throughout the day, so it is important to give them with food that you know they’ll always want to finish. Here are our top 8 suggestions you can use to fill your snack containers that are colourful, fun and delicious.
These are always delicious, quick to make and go a long way. You can easily use whats in the fridge. Our favourite dips are basil & rocket pesto, hummus or smashed avocado with lime. Combine your dips with some snow peas, carrot sticks, capsicum and cucumber instead of the traditional biscuits.
Mini Pasta Salad
When cooking dinner for the kids, set aside an extra portion of mini pasta. Adding in fresh tomato, capsicum or spring onion makes this a tasty salad to put in your snack containers. You could even make this your main lunch item for a fun lunchbox idea.
Homemade Muesli Bar
Oats are a great tummy filler and provide the perfect crunch. If you want to add some sweetness too, put in some white chocolate chips.
If you know your little ones love potato chips, try providing veggie chips instead. Roast some thinly slice sweet potato, beetroot and parsnip. You can also add on some herbs for some more flavour.
Mini Pizza Scrolls
Get the kids in the kitchen to help with making these. This way they can choose their own flavours such as ham, capsicum, spinach, cheese or pineapple. They’ll be super excited opening their snack container and seeing their creation the next day.
