      Snacks are the big part of your child’s diet, so it’s significant that most of the snacks you give him/her are ones you feel good about. These 10 healthy homemade snacks your kids will love to eat. These snack ideas are the perfect combination of some fiber (from whole grains, fruit or vegetables), some protein and some fat. It’s a combo that’s sure to satisfy and that will fuel your busy child.

      Who knew that this would be a big hit with a few of the kids and adults. Washing and cutting the asparagus brush with melted butter or margarine or vegan butter or cooking spray any flavor. Putting the asparagus in the air fryer making sure that the spray or butter & seasonings is evenly coated. Cook till the tops are crunchy but not burned. Or wrapping the asparagus with bacon. Not sure about the vegan bacon

      Good ideas

    • #390652

      I started buying frozen fruits but they sometimes get mushy when you defrost them. I started buying the berries in the large containers at the grocery store because buying individual packages even the buy 1 get 1 free the end total is higher then just buying the big container with the berry mix and they can be put in the freezer for smoothies etc. You get a better deal by buying other fruits and cutting them up put in ziploc for future use. Try different fruits that you wouldn’t normally buy and do a little taste test only buy one or 2

      I like to mix a box of chocolate cake with a can of pumpkin, and bake into cupcakes for my kids. They are dense and delicious and my kids can’t detect there is pumpkin in there. This is a classic WEight Watchers recipe, but I just like it in general. The cupcakes are so dense that you dont need frosting. i do toss in an extra handful of sugar free chocolate chips for them.
