Works For Me! Kid's Snacks


Over a dozen times each day I am asked "I'm hungry. What can I eat?" Sound familiar? Now that my kids are able to open the refrigerator I have designated the bottom bin their snack bin. I fill it with apples, yogurt, string cheese, and other healthy options (even things like raisins and such that don't have to be refrigerated - at least it is in one place). Now instead of asking what they can have, they ask if they can have a snack. It's so much easier on my brain just to say yes, than to think of what we have. Easy. Works for me!


I just discovered Real Food Wednesday and adore it. She has weekly themes. This week it's great time-saving kitchen tip or nutrition tips. The list of past carnival are nice to browse as well because you know what topic is covered. Go see for yourself!

  2. Oh, my daughter would love this! She's quite the "big girl" (3 years) and enjoys doing things all by herself. I'll have to do this. Works for me!

  5. We have an "anytime" snack drawer, too! We picked the idea up from my sister-in-law.

  7. This is such a good idea. I am thinking I am going to give this a try. My six year old is always going through the kitchen looking for snacks.
