Kid Snacks

Here are some quick and healthy snacks I made with my toddler. It evoked a, "You're the best mom ever" from my kids. And that's saying something. :-)

Apple Butterflies:
2 apple wedges (quartered)
peanut butter
carrot stick
Spread peanut butter between the quartered apples and place around the carrot stick to look like a butterfly.

Ants on a Log:
celery sticks
peanut butter
mini chocolate chips
Spread peanut butter inside celery stick and sprinkle with chocolate chips.

Strawberry Pinwheels:
cream cheese, softened
strawberry jam
Spread cream cheese on the tortilla going almost to the edge. Spread jam on top of the cream cheese. Roll up, chill for 10 minutes (so cream cheese will firm up), then cut with a serrated knife. This can also be made with peanut butter & jam, ham & cheese, or any other sandwich filler.

Pita Apple Pie
pita bread
Spread applesauce over a piece of pita bread then sprinkle with cinnamon (and sugar for extra sweetness if you want). Place on a baking sheet and warm at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Slice the pita into triangles with a pizza cutter.
