WW Wednesday -- Healthy Snack Ideas / Kid Friendly

Here are some easy healthy snack ideas that are kid friendly as wel. I have had these in my recipe binder for awhile now and they are from Family Fun Magazine/Cookbooks.

3 bananas
6 Popsicle sticks
1/4 cup peanut butter, softened
1/4 cup chopped peanuts or walnuts, granola, crispy rice cereal or sunflower seeds

Peel the bananas. Cut them in half, widthwise, and push a Popsicle stick through the cut end of each half. Spread peanut butter on the bananas, then roll them in the nuts, cereal or seeds. Wrap them in waxed paper and freeze for 3 hours. Makes 6.

1/4 cup margarine, melted
1 tbsp. dry taco seasoning mix
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
2 tbsp. vegetable oil

Mix the melted margarine with taco seasoning and set aside. Pop the popcorn kernels in the oil in a large, covered pot, pop, then pour the popped corn into a large serving bowl. Stir in the seasoned margarine and toss lightly. Serves 4.

1/2 cup low-sugar, low-fat chunky peanut butter
1/4 cup crispy rice cereal
1/8 cup raisins
2 green apples, cut into wedges

Mix the peanut butter, cereal, and raisins in a small bowl. Let the kids dip the apple wedges into the thick peanut butter mixture. If you prefer to thin it, melt the peanut butter in the microwave first, then add the cereal and raisins and serve warm. Serves 2.
