Are you looking for healthy snack options now that summer is here? Wiona with AspiringNurse.com has a few sugestions in today's Guest Post.
Strawberries and Cream
A classic summer dessert and delicious to boot! Stock up on strawberries or your other favorite berries, wash them, and place them in a bowl. Add a dollop of cream and enjoy! With delicious strawberries, you really can't go wrong.
You can buy these or make them yourself. Simple and delicious, your kids will love them, but you can put as much or as little sugar in them as you want.
The same as popsicles, but in a different format. Snow cones are fun for kids and grown-ups alike. You can control the amount of syrup that goes into the shaved ice, and whether or not it is sugar free, so you do not have to worry about what it might be doing to your kids' bodies.
A classic summertime treat. Freeze some bananas overnight on wax paper. In the morning you can dip them in melted chocolate, or eat them as they are. These are yummy, healthy, and fun!
A different and creative way to display your fruit. Fruit is always the perfect summer treat, but putting it on a skewer is an inspired way to make it easy to eat and fun to look at!
The great thing about smoothies is that they can never go wrong. You can buy them or make them at home and either way you will enjoy it. Experiment with your different fruits and flavors and try something new every day. They even work as a quick and easy breakfast - what a great way to start a summer day!
