Honey week: healthy honey snacks for kids

The National Honey Board has many kid-inspired healthy honey snacks. The Honey Banana Pops is a fun one to make with the kids this summer. Plus, you can roll the bananas in everything from chopped dried fruit to graham cracker crumbs. Honey Care to Take a Dip is a healthy recipe using honey, orange juice, yogurt and fruit.

Here is one of my favorites honey inspired recipes both in its original kid-friendly form and with a more Weight Watchers friendly version for us folks watching our calories.

  2. Spread each slice with 2 Tablespoons peanut butter and 2 Tablespoons honey.
  3. Sprinkle 2 bread slices with 1 Tablespoon nuts each.
  4. Sprinkle remaining slices with strawberries.
  5. Cut each slice in half.

If your child is allergic to peanut butter, just leave it and the nuts out and add a little more honey.

Weight Watchers version – Peanut Butter, Honey and Strawberry Roll-Up
Serves 1

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Lay Flatout Flatbread wrap on flat surface and spread most of the peanut butter and honey in a line vertically down the center.
  2. Spread some peanut butter and honey on the left edge, so when you roll the flatbread from the right, they will act as a glue to seal your roll.
  3. Lay sliced strawberries on the right side of the flatbread, then carefully roll the flatbread all the way up. (If you are proficient with a sushi mat, you could use it to make a perfectly shaped, tight roll.)
  4. You can either eat it like a burrito, or slice it with a sharp knife into sections like a sushi roll.

  1. Fun healthy kids snacks

    Many children tend to eat frequently through the day as their bodies require. One should not force children to eat more and more like adults do. A child under the age of four or five might eat six to seven times a day. One can give fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grain crackers, cheese cubes, peanut butter-cheese sandwiches into daily snacks. Also can try can try a yoghurt shake with fruit of choice. Try to avoid pre-packaged snacks because its unhealthy. One can go for milk-based drinks because it rich in proteins, calcium, iron, also fruit juice will be good.
