Are you going to be spending the Easter holiday with your grandkids this year? If you answered YES, you’re probably thinking of all the ways you’re going to spoil them…filling their baskets with chocolate bunnies, peeps, jellybeans, and more. The options are endless. Remember, though, too many sugar-filled snacks will inevitably take a toll on your grandchildren’s health. And, when you really sit down and think about it, their health is the MOST important thing in the world.
That doesn’t mean Easter can’t be fun this year. I’ve searched the web for fun, festive, and oh so HEALTHY snacks. I found some super cute ideas that I even want to try.
Healthy Fruit and Vegetable Bunny Snack
This is great for an after school or post egg hunt snack! You can use apples, strawberries, blueberries, cheese cut in circles, carrots, cucumber, and mini almonds, but feel free to get creative with what you have on hand! You can even pre-cut everything and have your grandkids put together their own bunny!
Egg Carton Lunch Snacks
This is one of the best ideas I came across when looking for cool Easter snack ideas. What makes this idea so cool is you can completely customize it to suit your grandchild’s preferences. Choose his or her favorite snacks (grapes, fish crackers, cheese etc) and maybe throw in one sugary treat (like fruit snacks or mini cookies) to make it a little more fun!
Fruit and Peep Kabobs
This snack is perfect for those of you with multiple children running around during Easter. You can use any diced or small fruit for the cabobs (melons and cantaloupes work well), grapes and then one little sweet treat of a marshmallow Peep. This festive fruit/veggie tray will be a huge hit with your kids this year!
Cute Deviled Egg Chicks
We LOVE deviled eggs at Easter time, and I think Kirt would even like this one! These particular guys use pimento-stuffed olive slices for the eyes and little pieces of carrot for the feet and beaks. Everyone will love these healthy and fun snacks this Easter weekend!
Stay happy, healthy, and N motion, AND REMEMBER…age is just a number!
