Long summer days with kids out of school means we go through snacks at my house at an alarming rate. As a mom, I know my kids want tasty snacks and as a dietitian, I want to make sure I am providing them with the fuel they need to stay active. I know with a little planning and preparation; we can achieve both delicious and nutritious. Win, win! Try these Harmons Dietitian and Chef created recipes with your crew this summer.
Peanut Butter Energy Bites
Peach Nice Cream
Pineapple Mango Coconut Popsicles
Superhero Veggie Dip
Keep a fresh veggie tray on hand with a fun dip. Kids (and adults) are more prone to eat what’s in plain sight, so always provide nutrient rich options for them to grab.
Pecan Pie Oatmeal Bars
Kids love to help make this easy bar recipe; helping whisk ingredients is a safe and easy way to have them involved in the kitchen. A decent dose of heart healthy fats, proteins and fiber will keep them satisfied and fueled for all the summer fun!
