    Fun Food Tips

    Freeze a whole banana and then serve with a spoon! It tastes like banana ice cream!

    Serve frozen peas or other vegetables right out of the freezer as finger food, – they’re sweet.

    Puzzle sandwiches: Cut a sandwich into odd shapes that fit together like a puzzle.

    Serve crepes with many different fillings.

    Make and use sprinkles: Chop, grind, or mix together 1/3 cup granola, 1/3 cup nuts, and 1/3 cup wheat germ. Sprinkle on yogurt, fruit, ice cream, cottage cheese.

    Serve shape pancakes: When frying pancakes, pour the batter into numbers, letters, or shapes. Let your child choose some shapes to have you prepare.

    Try having breakfast foods for dinner, and leftovers from dinner for breakfast.

    Mix plain sparkling water with fruit juice and add chunks of fruit for decoration.

    Have a winter picnic on a blanket in the house!

    Cut sandwiches, bologna, or cheese into shapes with cookie cutters.

    Prepare soft shell tortillas with melted cheese, chopped vegetables, meat, or refried beans. Roll like a jellyroll or sprinkle flat like a pizza.

    Dip less desired foods in appealing dips: cheese dip, bean dip, sweet mustard, ketchup, cream dips, salsa, yogurt, honey, etc.

    Create international meals: plan a meal with a theme from another culture.

    Make a variety of healthy shakes loaded with fruit, yogurt, and honey.

    Bake a simple muffin or quick bread recipe with your child. Have a tea party, using the baked goods for the treat.

    Make kabobs or "hors d’oeuvres" using pretzels for skewers, with meatballs, fruit chunks, cheese cubes, salami, etc.

    Make cinnamon apples: Cut apples into slices and place a small amount of cinnamon sugar on the plate. Let your child dip the apples into the cinnamon.

    Same food, more fun: Prepare foods that you can eat with your fingers and then serve in muffin tins, pie plates, or allow your child to occasionally use a fancy plate or serving dish.

  • ? says:

    My son and I make fruit kabobs all the time, just cut up a bunch of fruit and put it in on a skewer in a nice pattern. Sometimes we switch it up and add marshmallows too 🙂 He loves it because he helps make it.

    Also Frozen Grapes or bananas are always a good choice for a quick fun snack.

    Check out this site, it has given me a lot of ideas over the years.

    Good Luck!

  • matthew d says:

    whatever i make them

  • Robert S says:

    I assume you want things kids can make, with supervision.
    Grilled Cheese sandwich, French Toast, Toad in a Hole, etc.
    Piggies in a blanket, take a little more preparation.
    Peanut butter & jelly, or Peanut butter & banana,
    these can also be coated & fried like French Toast.
    Raw veggie crudites & simple dips.

  • Jen-Jen says:

    My kids (7 and 2) like making peanut butter logs–celery, peanut butter and either dried cranberries or dried cherries sprinkled on top. Raisins work too.

    They also are HUGE fruit bats–no fruit is safe in my house!!! Cheese and crackers is nice, maybe rice cakes with peanut butter, trail mix, dried fruit, etc. The other thing my kids love is edamame. You can buy them precooked, just defrost and sprinkle with salt if you choose.

  • Toni S says:

    My kids loved graham crackers topped with applesauce.

    You can do carrots or celery with a little ranch dressing for dipping. Celery stuffed with peanut butter and raisins.

  • cowgirl_power82 says:

    I make this kind of milkshake, smoothie type of thing for my kids and they love it. I put 1 banana, 2 good spoonfuls of peanut butter, and then some milk (sometimes just a little squeeze of choc sauce) and blend it up.

    I make a big batch and keep it in the fridge. It’s filling and has protien, calcium, fruit, and a little sweet. I like it too.

    Other than that I have also been buying my kids dried fruit to snack on cuz I can just keep it in a bag in the car.

    Granola bars are always good. Homemdae or storebought. There are a lot of granola recipes out there and I had a really really good one but I cannot find it.

    Apples and peanut butter is quick and simple.

    Smoothies are also good. One of my faves is 1 red apple, about 1 cup frozen red grapes, 1 banana, and orange juice blended up with ice cubes.

    Make your own popsicles with 1 pint blueberries, 1 can pears+ 2 tbsp juice, 2 blueberry yougurt cups. Blend up and pour into popsicle molds. You can use any berry or fruit of course.

    Roll up some apple or cherrie pie filling int pie dough and make mini fruit pies.

    If you have one of those old electric sandwich makers (not a george forman grill) butter 2 peices of bread and fill with the apple of cherry pie filling. Grill until the bread is golden brown and sprinkle with powered sugar. You could also do it with a skillet.

    Make up a couple slices of toast, Spread on some apple sauce and then put on a couple slices of cheese (try to avoid American if you can) and stick under the broiler until the cheese melts and just starts to turn golden brown.

    Also you could roll up hot dogs or lili smokies in crescent rolls. Oscar Meyer has now started making mini dogs and those would be good too.

  • Nisey says:

    These are some things that I did when the kids were home–and now the grandkids.

    Ants on a log…cream cheese filled in a celery stick with raisins (ants) marching along the top. Can also use peanut butter instead of crm chs

    Sliced apple with cinnamon over top and dip into peanut butter (1 Tbs)

    Pop corn sprinkled with powder cheese, or spices or just a bit of melted butter

    Cinnamon toast. always a favorite

    Raggity Ann or Andy salad. Put a scoop of cottage cheese on a plate, a peach half midway then put raisins for eyes, shredded carrots or sticks, or shredded cheese for hair, or even shredded lettuce…let them design their own, it will keep them busy, they will eat something good and be creative at the same time!

    Pioneer, aka,Celery wagons. celery stick with carrot slices for wheels and a slice of american cheese for the cover, or make sailboats using toothpicks and slice the cheese as a triangle. Stick into celery, apple, half a baked potato as the vehicle, boat, wagon, whatever, add a few olives as ship mates and watch em have fun!

    Of course, homemade fruit popcicles, smoothies,

    Homemade ice cream. I have a recipe for individual baggies—easy, fun and any kid can do it. Add fruit or nuts or choco chips or whatever for fun and variety. Write me if you are interested.

    Saltine crackers with just some butter and jelly

    Ritz crackers with a bit of soft cream cheese, a slice of beef stick or summer sausage and a sliced pickle on top….yummm…I use this often for holiday appetizers and people love it.

    Deviled eggs

    Any more? Hopefully these ideas help. Enjoy your summer!!

  • Silly goes- blonde says:

    Here are a couple of my favorites.

    Make a simple cheese cake filling by adding cream cheese, condensed milk and a bit of lemon or lime juice. and add it to graham crackers or ginger cookies.

    Make powdered sugar frosting and graham cracker sandwich cookies.

    Make trail mix with favorite nuts, and candies. I use M&M’s, mixed nuts, dried pineapple and raisins and if i have left over pretzels I use those.. Make individual containers of each and let the kids make their own combo.

    caramel apple cups. slice apple and drizzle a bit of caramel over them, use the tiny cocktail swords if kids are old enough.

    Stuff to bake.. flour-less peanut butter cookies, pretzels,

    homemade ice cream… especially if they get to hand crank it- good for a neighborhood kids day.

  • Erika says:

    Make your own trailmix. Set up bowls each with a different ingreadient such as one with pretzels, another with goldfish, one with cheeze its, another with m&ms, and one with doritos. Give each child a plastic cup to scoop as much of each ingrediant.

    This works great when my 5 year old daughter has her friend over because then the kid who doesn’t like pretzels doesn’t have to have any, and the kid allergic to cheese doesn’t eat the doritos and so on.

    Adding dried fruit makes it healthier!! And the kids like the idea of doing it themselves!

  • rosewx12 says:

    My three year old daughter loves making smoothies with half milk, half yogurt, fruit, honey and a little vanilla.

    I also leave out a fruit bowl that she can just help herself too.

    For more involved snacks this website has some cute ideas:

    I’m going to try their yogurt cereal bars when it’s not to hot to run the oven midday.
