Invent A Snack! Organic Living Challenge

Challenge: Invent a Snack!

This week’s challenge is to invent a snack using organic ingredients! I will be participating in some fun challenges over the next 3 weeks, and I hope that you guys will join me! Plus, there will be a fun giveaway to go along with these challenges!  (I will post today about the giveaway.)

Snacks are usually eaten in a hurry and when you are quite hungry, so I try to keep snacks stocked up for my kids. I don’t keep any processed, ready-made snacks in my house, so I am always coming up with new ideas for healthy snacks for my kids. Today, I am going to share a list of healthy go to snacks that I have for my kids, and the rest of the week I will share some healthy foods and recipes that all of my children enjoy!

Making Snacks Appealing:

I want my kids to want to eat their healthy foods. One of the best ways I have found to get my kids to eat their fruits, veggies, and nuts is presenting them in a fun manner.

I use muffin tins, and fill each cup with different healthy foods. The rule is, all of the food has to be eaten in the muffin tins before they are refilled. Since, these muffin tins are colorful, and have bite size snacks in them that my kids can get anytime without asking, they are a big hit!

Here is a list of different items I put in the tins, and yes my kids love all of it! They usually head for the nuts first, but the fun looking veggies get eaten as quickly as the sweet fruit. This is the one way that I have been able to get my kids to eat just about anything.

  1. raw nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans, etc.)
  2. broccoli
  3. cauliflower
  4. berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, etc.)
  5. apple slices
  6. pear slices
  7. melon balls
  8. carrots
  9. sweet potato sticks (A family favorite. I just peel them and cut them in French fry shapes and they eat them raw. They are really good!)
  10. peas
  11. celery
  12. cucumber
  13. cheese cubes
  14. pear slices
  15. grape and cherry tomatoes
  16. spinach leaves

Basically I just take whatever is fresh out of the garden, cut it up and add it to the muffin tins. To save time, I pre-chop the fruits and veggies and place them in plastic bags. This way I can quickly refill the tins when they empty.
