My girls fall into the same category. I understand. I totally relate. But I also recognize our need for at least some protein and fat. Despite my best intentions, woman can not live on ice cream alone. Oh but if I could!
The other day I made an attempt to spice up snack time a bit. It was a hit with my two little girls, so I wanted to share it with you.
I used a small muffin tin and filled each section with a different healthy snack.
I used raw kolrhabi (a fan favorite around here and can be found at a local farmers market near you), garbanzo beans, strawberries, raw almonds, sugar snap peas, and red peppers.
The girls loved having a variety to choose from and simply something different. All was going well until I saw this.......
My 3 year old making claims on the strawberries!
That was quickly remedied and off they went exploring their variety of snacks. I was actually very surprised how well this went over with them. They were able to play and graze and by the time it was said and done they had eaten the whole try of goodies. I plan on surprising them more often with this idea and mixing up the snack offerings. Options are endless!
