Cool Summer Snacks for Kids

Posted on July 21, 2008 by Glutenfreeda


This summer I’m sure many of you will hear over and over again…”I’m hungry!” from your kids, as I do daily! Cool your kids off this summer with some great snacks that will satisfy their tummies without ruining their meals.

Healthy Cool Snack Choices

Fresh fruit

Always have fresh fruit within hands reach for your kids. Give them healthy choices for their snacks and help them build great eating habits for later in life.

Gf yogurt

A great, healthy snack for anytime.

Frozen fruit

Freeze grapes, blueberries, strawberries, sliced peaches, blackberries, watermelon and the list goes on and on and on….for another cool, healthy alternative.

Juice pops

Get your kids involved and make your own juice pops. Take an ice cube tray and fill it with their favorite juice. Cover with plastic wrap. Cut small slits in the plastic wrap in the center of each cube. Insert popsicle sticks in the center and freeze.


Blend gf yogurt, orange juice, frozen fruit, and bananas for a delicious, healthy snack.
