Healthy Christmas snacks for kids? Can you really get that accomplished between making cookies, candy and gingerbread men? How can healthy snacks for Christmas be part of reality? Well, it’s really not as difficult as you might think. Even if it is Christmas, as a health-conscious mum, I can think of a few ways to get this done. Here are a few suggestions to start with.
Dehydrated Red and Green Apples
Dried fruit is a healthy snack that children love. Make it festive at Christmas time with some red and green apples either homemade with your own dehydrator or store-bought if you don’t have a dehydrator. Add some dried cranberries and golden raisins for even more Christmas colour.
Red and Green Popcorn
Just pop your favourite popcorn any way you’d like, air-popped, or the traditional style right from the stovetop. Once it’s done popping, pour it on a cookie sheet and spread out well. Then, drizzle red and green food colouring over the entire batch, mix well and repeat until you have plenty of Christmas colour all over the popcorn.
Christmas Tree Dip
Cream cheese dip abounds with this healthy Christmas treat for kids.
Start by using your favourite cream cheese dip either singled, doubled or tripled, depending on how large of a tree you’ll be making. Once that’s done, spread it out shaped like a Christmas tree over the surface of a large plate or cookie sheet, depending on the size your tree will be.
Adorn your tree with halved baby carrots stuck upright into the dip, along with some broccoli florets, small chunks of red peppers, green peppers, and celery. Don’t forget some cherry tomatoes too!
These healthy Christmas snack ideas for kids will not only be great snacking material, but they’ll also be great fun for the kids to make as well!
