Quick and Easy Kid-Friendly Snack & Meal Ideas

119 comments

‘”Mommy, guess who is very busy right now?”

“Who?”

“Auntie Angie is very busy right now.”

“Oh really?”

“Yes. She’s busy baking us all kinds of treats! heheh”

Clearly, my nephew Ethan has been reading my blog! He said that to Kristi as they were flying to Ontario this weekend.

And he was right; it was a very busy weekend cleaning the house, stocking the fridge and freezer, cooking/baking, and wrapping gifts! I’m feeling pretty relaxed though because I didn’t leave everything to the last minute and I got all my meal planning done last week. I really don’t know who I am anymore!

This weekend, I channeled my inner child and tested out a couple kid-friendly snack and meal ideas that I can make while my nephews are here. They are also adult-friendly too of course (and aren’t we all just big kids at heart?).

1) Apple Sandwiches

with peanut butter, granola, vegan overnight oats, chocolate chips (or raisins), coconut

IMG_9246-2

I spotted this idea on Pinterest and I knew that it would be a hit with kids.

Just grab an apple, slice it crosswise, and then use a large pastry tip to punch a hole through the centre to make an ‘apple bagel’ slice.

Then just layer on peanut butter, granola, VOO, coconut, raisins, chocolate chips, etc…anything you desire! These will be really fun to make with my nephews because they can create their own.

2) Chunky Whole Fruit Popsicles

IMG_9214

Ange told me about these popsicles and I knew I had to make them for my nephews. All you do is cut up your favourite fruit, drop it into a popsicle mold, and then fill up the remaining space with juice. Freeze overnight.

For the juice, I used this delicious pineapple coconut juice. It’s also clear, so the fruit shows through quite a bit.

They taste great and I’m sure the boys will love ‘em on those hot days!

3) Carrot Spice Muffins 

IMG_4257-2

My nephews love muffins, so I will definitely be making a batch of Carrot muffins while they are here!

4) Fruit Pizza with Avocado Lime Whip on a Cinnamon Sugar Crust

20101015IMG_6342_thumb1

This dessert pizza is not only packed with nutrients, but it’s a hit with everyone who tries it. Kids can also help make the pizza too.

5) Green Monsters & Smoothies

IMG_9336

My nephews love Green Monsters & Smoothies, so we’ll be making lots of these this week.

6) Easy Cheezy Crackers & Homemade Hummus

IMG_5069

These crackers are not only my favs, but they are extremely quick to make and the dough is easy to roll! Kids will have fun using cookie cutters to create all kinds of shapes. They go great with Cheezy Hummus or my favourite homemade hummus.

7) Frosty No Bake Chocolate Cookies

IMG_63341

Seconds to whip up, these freezer cookies are great for the summer and filled with healthy ingredients like chia seeds and rolled oats, but the kids won’t know the difference.

8.) Lightened Up Summer Granola

IMG_6947

My nephews love granola with milk for breakfast, so a batch of this will definitely go quick!

9) Almond Butter Rice Crisp treats

IMG_7922

It’s a bold statement, but I think these Almond Butter Rice Crisp treats are better than the ones I used to make as a kid. Even better, they have ingredients that you can feel good about!

As you know, I’m not usually a meal planner, but when I’m playing hostess for a week and kids are involved, I like to plan ahead.

This week’s kid-friendly meal plan:

Monday: Hawaiian stir-fry with coconut rice

Tuesday: Potluck dinner @ family gathering (I’m contributing Back on Track Wheatberry salad and dessert)

Wednesday: BBQ homemade burgers, roasted veggies, fries, Weekend Glow Kale Salad 

Thursday: They will be away this night so Eric and I will probably grab something easy

Friday: Restaurant

Saturday: Build your own pizza night (so excited for this!) + salad (Kerrie and the family join us for the weekend)

Sunday: Pasta dish/casserole (TBD), garlic bread, salad, etc

Lunch ideas: Mac ‘n cheese (using this sauce), peas, and veggie dogs, grilled cheese, sandwiches/subs, etc. 

If only I could be this organized every week!

Wow, they’re going to leave full! Too cute that your nephew is excited to come visit and eat all of your tasty foods.
Also, love those apple sandwiches! We do something similar at home only we cut the apple horizontally, remove the filling, and fill it up with soy yogurt + granola and then top it with the apple insides.

For the apple sandwiches, can you pick them up and bite through them? I’m afraid they’d be so messy! I suppose thin slices + not too much filling would be manageable for small mouths.

Those popsicles look amazing! Thanks for sharing!

I am so grateful for this post today! School starts in three weeks and I have to start thinking about school lunches again. My daughter isn’t the pickiest kid in the world, but packing her lunch isn’t always the easiest thing. I feel like I just pack the same three things all the time! The apple sandwich will be a hit for sure (with almond butter as she’s in a peanut free school) and I love making her muffins with veggies in them (carrots, zucchini, sweet potatoes).

when i started seriously getting into cooking a few months ago, i started planning my meals every week: i’m about the least organized person i know, but we were getting so much waste food and making too many extra grocery store trips. so now, the day before grocery day, i skim through recipes i want to try/old favorites and make a list of everything i don’t have. it works really well: we spend less on groceries, waste less food (unless a recipe i try ends up being a bust…), and eat out WAY WAY WAY less. i’m just less inclined to be all “oh let’s just go out for dinner” if i know i have all the stuff for a particular meal.

I’m so impressed with the awesome twists you made on these recipes to make them healthy but still kid approved.

I can see myself getting pretty creative with these for a brunch with friends.

And the choc oat no bake cookies of yours (always make me drool), I do a microwave version of an oat + chocolate + PB nobake bar.

Now I need a Popsicle!!! And those crackers. And the granola.

Question on the chocolate banana no bakes – my kids HATE bananas (weird, I know) and they always detect them when I use them in various recipes even if I think they aren’t noticeable. Do you think that applesauce would work or another type of fruit puree? Nothing else has quite the same texture as pureed banana except perhaps an avocado. Thoughts????

Reply

68 Angela (Oh She Glows) July 26, 2011

Hmm I’m really not sure if the applesauce would make it all stick together as well. It would be an experiment I guess!

69 Victoria (Sweet and Healthy Living) July 25, 2011

Those apple sandwiches are adorable! You could also do little apple donuts with toppings! I also like the idea of whole fruit popsicles! That way you are not left with just ice after you suck all the juice out! ;)

Ok I love your site and all the recipes I have tried…but unfortunately a lot of things require some expensive ingredients :( I was drooling over that fruit pizza…

So out of curiosity what is your food budget? I get that you can consider your food a business expense but I’m still curious to see if it’s even attainable.

Thanks and have fun with the kids the treats you have planned will be sure winners.

79 Angela (Oh She Glows) July 26, 2011

Hi Khaira,
I buy many of my ingredients in bulk and it saves a TON of money. We’ve also found that not buying expensive meat saves us a lot too. I think it all balances out in the end. We have some really dirt cheap meals every day thanks to vegan baking with grains and seeds!

Why have I never thought of apple sandwiches before?! That’s so much more clever than just dipping apple slices into peanut butter (which is one of my favorite snacks). I wish I had kids to make those for! I guess I’ll just have to make them for myself…and my fiance, if he’s lucky. ;)

I am especially greatful for this post, as I am in the process of teaching my kids about nutrition & how to make healthy food choices. All of the “busy, busy, busy” in life can make it seem like there just isn’t time to prepare food that is both quick & healthy. I have found that that is such a MYTH (!) in our world of fast food on every corner. Sometimes the hardest part is just coming up with something DIFFERENT. I am so excited to try these recipes out w/my kiddos!

I’m making those apple sandwiches for my kids for lunch today-yum, can’t wait to see how they like it! I just published a children’s book titled “The Boy Who Loved Broccoli” which is aimed at getting kids to eat their veggies! Anyway, I’d love to send you a copy for your lil’ nephews if you’d like.
Thanks!

I just tried out your chunky whole fruit popsicle idea and put it up on my blog! I didn’t have any juice at home, so I had to resort to yogurt instead. But they still turned out pretty good! Thanks for the idea! Next up is your apple sandwiches. You’re a genius!

Hi,
Pinned this the other day and bought all the ingredients needed for the fruit pizza but now can’t seem to open the link. It sends me to a broken page.
Can you please send me the recipe ?? Thanks a bunch
