I came here the other day to comment and got distracted by pinning everything. Ha! So now I reminded myself to come back. I love the photography and I love pretty much every snack idea.
Love this! My daughter is all about strawberries and bananas, so I’ve definitely tried those with frozen yogurt and peanut butter (bananas). She loves them, and the fact that she’s eating fruits makes it all the more better. Definitely sharing and pinning this for later. Thanks so much for sharing these awesome ideas on #shinebloghop this week. So happy you were able to join us 🙂
What a great round up! My kids will love these–especially the banana PB sandwiches. Thanks for sharing at MeetUp Monday!
These look delicious! I love how most of them are things that my kids already like, just with a healthy add on. I’ll have to add some of these to the snack rotation.
I’m visiting from The Small Victories Sunday Link Party! 🙂
