Lip Smackin' Snackin' :-)

Inspiration for kid friendly home school snack time.

Fruit
fruit kabobs
dried apple rings
apple sauce with graham cracker dippers
apple slices with peanut butter and honey dip
strawberry and banana slices with chocolate dip
orange slices
grapes

Veggies
celery sticks with peanut butter, cream cheese, or pimento cheese
carrot sticks with ranch dip
broccoli and cauliflower with cheese dip

Sweet
homemade cookies and milk
oatmeal fruit bars
granola bars
peanut butter balls
trail mix

Savory
bagels with cream cheese
crackers with cheese slices
pretzels with honey mustard dip
tortilla roll ups
pita pizzas
mini bagel pizzas
string cheese with pizza sauce
tortilla crisps with salsa
flavored popcorn

I will be adding to this list and posting recipes as I prepare snacks this school year. This inspiration reminds me to keep fruits, veggies and homemade goodness in our daily snack routine. If I don't, there is a slight chance that my children could turn into "Little Debbies" before May. ;-)

Thank you for this list. What a good idea. I'll be using some of these as I make out my grocery list. I'm terrible about just picking stuff up at the store (usually pre-bought cookies). Hope you have a good Labor Day!
