Ideas for kid's snacks

kimbow | Sep 16, 2004 02:15 PM

I have volunteered to share/demonstrate making some healthy snacks for kids and parents at a local Ronald McDonald house next Tuesday.

These parents really need some great snack ideas that will be healthy for their kids, and - since they're pressed for both time and money and often shuttling between the house and hospital - they should be fairly easy to prepare, affordable and, possibly, portable.

I'm told the only dietary restrictions would be any meat/fish items that aren't completely cooked as the kids have reduced immunity (no sushi!).

I'm open to any suggestions that fit the above parameters.

Also - the families have access to an oven, microwave, blender, etc in the house's kitchen and have small refrigerators in their rooms.

Some initial thoughts are: veggies and hummus; fruit w/ yogurt dip; edamame; maybe a Spanish-like omelette that they can use what ever veggies they have on hand; whole wheat quesadillas...

Thanks in advance for your ideas!
