Go Organically Snack Ideas for Moms and Dads - Giveaway

I will receive products in exchange for this post.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

 With back-to-school in full swing, Go Organically Fruit Snacks is reaching out to share some creative ideas to switch up snack time.

If you’ve got kids, you’ve got snacks. The two just seem to go hand in hand! As parents ourselves, we’re always looking for ways to bust boredom with the snacks we serve, whether at home or heading to an after-school activity. So for all you soccer moms, scout dads or other parents on snack duty, let’s shake things up and bring back the fun to snack time!
Focus on Fruit

Packed with goodness and great taste, fruit is a no-brainer snack choice for kids. Plus, it’s a naturally gluten-free and nut-free option for kids with sensitivities. While some little ones will gladly devour all types of whole fruit, others need a little more coaxing. Try these ideas:
·         Slice it Up: We’re not sure why, but kids tend to like fruit better when it’s washed, cut, and ready to go. So slice those apples to amp up their appeal!
·         Set it Up: Out of sight, out of mind, right? Rather than keep bananas and oranges tucked away, display them in a bowl on your kitchen counter for an easy-grab solution.
·         Kebab it Up: Pro-tip: Everything is more kid-friendly on a stick—perhaps because it resembles a magic wand? Add strawberries, grapes, melon and other bite-sized fruit to a skewer, alternating as you go.
·         Mix it Up: Offer fruit in a variety of forms and textures, from freeze-dried to canned to smoothies and beyond.

Veg Out

Don’t tell your kids, but snack time can be a great time to incorporate veggies—especially if you do it in an artful way! A few of our faves:
·         Ants on a Log: Fill a celery stick with natural peanut butter, then sprinkle with raisins.
·         Bell Pepper Rainbow: Cut half-moon strips out of red, orange, yellow and green organic bell peppers. Arrange in a rainbow shape and add a piece of raw cauliflower on either end to mimic clouds.
·         Cucumber Sandwich: Use two round cucumber slices as your “bread” and fill with a yummy spread, such as hummus or cream cheese.
·         Kale Chips: Spread organic kale leaves in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven until browned, about 10-15 minutes. Let kids help by sprinkling on salt, pepper and/or parmesan cheese when done.

Grab and Go

We like to get all Pinterest-y just like any other parent, but sometimes it’s all about quick and portable. These packaged snack options are great for car rides, field trips, lunch boxes, sports practice or any other time you need to head out the door in seconds flat. It all depends on which flavor your kids are feeling!
·         Salty: Popcorn, pretzels, veggie straws, mixed nuts
·         Sweet: Animal crackers, oatmeal cookies, graham crackers, individual cereal boxes
·         Bars: Granola bars, protein bars, cereal bars, etc.
·         Other Popular Picks: Raisins, string cheese, yogurt tubes, Go Organically gluten free fruit snacks
