healthy summer snacks for kids

Popcorn Trail Mix - (cool) progeny

Popcorn Trail Mix: A fun mix of salty and sweet! Combine popcorn, dried cherries or cranberries, and dried bananas. Perfectly portable and great for car trips!

Pineapple Salsa with Pita Chips: Mix-up the salsa and chips! Opt for a quick and easy fresh pineapple salsa and family-friendly pita chips. 


Apricot Strawberry Grahams: A little twist on the strawberry tea sandwich! Using a food processor, combine cream cheese, greek yogurt, apricots, fresh strawberries and honey. Spread on a graham cracker and top with diced strawberry. Check out the recipe here.


Green Pea Guacamole and Carrot Sticks: A dip that packs a lot of veggie punch. Easily goes together with a food processor. The green pea guac is equally delicious on pasta (just saying).


Frozen Blueberries: Easy peasy snack idea and just as refreshing as a popsicle! Serve with a spoon or pick one-by-one.
