If you get kids involved in making their own, the more likely they eat it. So if you pick healthier foods, they will too!
I don’t believe in not letting my child have “bad food” such as chocolate. I truly try to set an example of moderation. If she is eating some chocolate chips, which she loves, I will let her have a couple and then pull out a banana and start eating and say, “This banana is so good!” Now, of course she is only 2 1/2 and easily influenced but hopefully this will latch on for the rest of the years.
I remember in grade school, one of my friends was not allowed to eat potato chips and when she would come to my house – she would eat the entire bag!
Here is a super simple snack for kids to do. They love making these little butterflies and perfect time of the year!
Butterfly Snack Bag
½ cup grapes
7 cheese cubes
- Place all ingredients in a sandwich bag.
- Tie a pipe cleaner in the center of the bag.
- Curl under the excess pipe cleaner to look like antenna.
