Summer time is just around the corner – it’s a great time to get creative with our children’s snacks!

Here are some healthy snacks for kids that are perfect for warm, sunny days:

Cool Summer Fruit Popsicles

What you need:

  • 1 kiwi, peeled and sliced

  • 1 peach, dice

  • 1/2 watermelon, pureed

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh strawberries

  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries

  • 1 handful of fresh cherries, cut and chopped

Prepare a dozen popsicle molds, then divide the cut fruits to fill each mold. Pour watermelon puree into each popsicle shape, filling to the top. Place a popsicle stick in each and freeze for at least 6 to 8 hours or until ready to serve.

For easy operation, run each of the frozen molds under hot water for a few seconds before pulling out for the kids to enjoy!

Sweet N healthy granola bars

What you need:

  • 1 1/2 cup almonds

  • 1 cup walnuts

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (preferably sugar free)

  • 2/3 cups of pistachios

  • 1/3 cup Sukrin Clear Fiber Syrup

  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds, chopped and cooked

  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds, chopped and cooked

  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, chopped and cooked

  • 3 tablespoons Sukrin Gold

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 teaspoon painted cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Melt the butter in a saucepan, then add Sukrin syrup, Sukrin Gold, ground cinnamon, vanilla extract and salt. Stir thoroughly. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the mixture is thicker. Stir in the nuts and cooked seeds, stirring to coat with the mixture.

Remove from the heat and place the mixture in a 9×3 baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Load another parchment paper on top, and strain to spread the mixture evenly on the baking sheet. Cool to rods and then refrigerate for another 15 minutes.

Store granola bars in an airtight container.

Easy Apple cookies

What you need:

  • 1 apple (green or red)

  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter

  • Mini chocolate chips (preferably sugar free)

Love the apple and cut into “circles”. Spread peanut butter on top of each apple slice, then sprinkle with chocolate chips. Do this for each apple slice. Refrigerate for at least 5 minutes before serving to the kids to enjoy more on a warm sunny day!

Preparing healthy snacks for children is not complicated at all. If you make delicious, healthy snacks, they no longer turn to junk food
