3rd Thursday Blog Hop: Summer Snacks

Here in Florida it has been summer for weeks, already a dozen visits to the pool included.  Being outside makes my kids hungry and I want quick, (and healthy) snacks.  Here are some of my favorites.

  • Cheese sticks-  when we buy a block of cheese we cut it up in to sticks or strips and then when we are hungry they are ready in the fridge.  
  • Yogurt Fruit Dip- Mix 1 part hot fudge sauce, 1 part fruit yogurt, together and use as a fruit dip.  Beware its yummy by itself as well.  
  • Peanut Butter Tortillas - This is my go to sandwich alternative.  Spread some peanut butter on a tortilla and roll or fold up.  Filling, yummy and not super messy.  For an added treat I melt chocolate chips on the peanut butter before I roll it up.  
  • Dry Cereal- I have a toddler and preschooler so dry cereal is a great quick and easy to pack snack for being out and about in the summer.  Sometimes I think my kids would eat cereal all day if I let them!

What are your go-to snacks for summer?
