Kid Friendly Fun Snacks!

Hello everyone and happy May! I cant believe it's crept up on us so fast! Sometimes getting kids to eat at any point in the day can be difficult here are some fun kid friendly snacks they'll love to eat!
All these recipes are super easy as you can see and you can modify to your child's liking!

These peanut butter and jelly kabobs look so fun and pretty. Can't have peanut butter in your school? Swap out that and the jelly for some lunch meat and cheese and it's still healthy and fun!


  • 6 ounces fresh raspberries
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt


  1. Fill a piping bag or ziplock back with yogurt (your choice of flavor). Freeze for a few minutes to an hour, checking every 10 minutes. You want it to solidify a bit without becoming solid.
  2. Meanwhile, rinse raspberries and allow to dry a bit. Once the yogurt is frozen, fill with piping bag or cut off the tip of your ziplock.
  3. Gobble them up! Even top with poppy seeds for "sprinkles," if desired.


  • 2 slices whole-wheat bread
  • 1 slice sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 slices Land O’Frost oven-roasted turkey
  • 2 pimento-stuffed green olives
  • Mayonnaise or mustard (optional)
  • Toothpicks
  • Round cookie cutter


  1. Cut bread slices with the circle cookie cutter.
  2. Spread mayonnaise or mustard on the bread.
  3. With a knife, cut little triangles out of the edges of the cheese to resemble teeth.
  4. Lay the lunch meat on the bottom of the sandwich, followed by the cheese and top slice of bread.
  5. Insert toothpicks into the side of two green olives and stick into the top of the sandwich. Serve!

  4. Refrigerate healthy monster cookie bites for at least 30 minutes before serving.
  5. Serve at room temperature and enjoy!
