Being the snack mom for your kid’s team is hard!
Kids want something yummy, but they don’t want the same old snack parents always bring. It’s time to bring something delicious and original!
Try these yummy snack ideas that will leave everyone with postgame smiles.
Crackers With Peanut Butter, Again?
We know you’ve done crackers with peanut butter. Who hasn’t? But here’s the trick: Don’t go the easy route with prepackaged peanut butter crackers. Instead, find a variety of yummy whole wheat crackers or even nutty crackers, and make your own sandwiches out of them with real peanut butter. It won’t take much time to put these together, and you can even get your kids to help. These will be tastier than premade sandwich crackers, and kids will love this new twist!
Fruit is another snack that has been done. The way to keep it interesting, and get kids excited, is to serve it in a new way. Try making fruit kabobs! Take the chunks of fruit you would have put on a platter for them, and skewer them. You can mix your usual postgame fruit ideas like banana bites and grapes with things like strawberries and kiwi. You can also dip them in yogurt or peanut butter and won’t have a mess on your hands. Experiment to find the perfect pairings, or take requests from the team!
Apples and peanut butter pair nicely but can be messy. Try making them into a sandwich with whole wheat bread, peanut butter, and apple slices. You can then cut them into triangles to serve after the game. Try serving these with chocolate milk!
That’s a Wrap
Whole wheat wraps are great for an easy handheld snack. Try hummus and veggies in a wrap. Slice cucumbers, colorful bell peppers, and tomatoes. Spread hummus on the wrap and top with sliced veggies and spinach leaves and roll it up. You could also try a wrap with peanut butter and fruit. They’re easy to make ahead and less likely to leave a mess behind.
Don’t have time to prepare a snack at home? For that ultra-convenient kids’ favorite choice, you can always grab a few boxes of Sunbelt Bakery products on your way to the game. Because when you show up holding Chocolate Chip or Peanut Butter Chip Chewy Granola Bars from Sunbelt Bakery, the team is likely to cheer for YOU!
A few spins on old favorites and some new ideas, as well. Hopefully these ideas have you looking at your snack assignment a little differently. Enjoy being the cool snack mom!
