3 Easy Snack Recipes For The Family

3 Easy Snack Recipes For The Family

It’s always seems to be an issue at our house as to which afternoon snacks to eat. I want my kids to eat healthy nutritious snacks and remind them constantly. When they were teenagers, I can’t say it was any easier as the bars, cookies, and popcorn are well from reach. Even today, I try to imply to eat healthy snacks. I try to have on hand fruits or veggies with a protein or carbohydrates to make sure they will be full until supper time. I thought I would share 3 of my children’s favourite super easy snack recipes.
