Healthy Summer Meals/Snacks for kids

Hey all!

With the kids getting out of school on friday it got me to thinking about meals and snacks for summer. I am currently making my menu for the next two weeks, school is in all this week ~ but next week should be when they start to eat any/everything in site just because their schedule will be different.

I need ideas for snacks and meals and thought we could all share ideas....I mean 4 growing kids have the potential to eat A LOT if I dont have stuff prepared

Well, I only have half the number of children you do, but when they were little and home on vacation I would start every day with a big, late-ish breakfast. Eggs, fruit, toast, etc. Then in the early afternoon I would put out a tray of stuff- cut up veggies, fruit, olives, cheese, sandwich triangles (we call them party pieces) and they could eat what they wanted for lunch, then graze later if they wanted to.

I made many, many batches of healthy-ish oatmeal cookies with applesauce, dried fruit, nuts, etc.

You might designate a drawer in the fridge or a basket that are snacks they can get on their own and keep healthy stuff there.

Our 5 year old is grain free and mostly low carb, and this is what we send to day camp as well as snack on at home. When she has fruit I try to pair it with a fat/protein. I also find that if I let her help make her snack, she's much more excited to eat it. We don't keep grains or sugar in the house so it's this or nothing.

Sliced apples with peanut butter
Parmesan cheese “crackers”
Babybel cheese
String cheese
BelGioiso mozzarella cheese baby balls
Sliced fruit (strawberries or blueberries) in cream with a little Splenda or Swerve
Smoked beef sticks
Carrot chips with dip
Thin sliced lunch meat spread with a little mayo or ranch wrapped around cheese
Deviled eggs
Popsicles – ripe avocado, cup frozen strawberries, quarter cup plain Greek yogurt, splash vanilla, and sweetener to taste. Freeze in cups/molds
Cold bacon
"Milkshakes" - frozen strawberries, HWC, few ice cubes, sweetener to taste pulverized in the food processor. Add more ice if too thick.
Romaine lettuce wraps - stuff with meat, cheese, mayo
Peanut butter spoon
Greek yogurt - the Chobani tubes are good to freeze and don't have tons of sugar
