Healthy snacks for my family can be hard to find, especially for my two picky eaters. My ideal snack is quick to prepare, filling, tasty and veggie-based.
Here are some creative ways to eat more vegetables when afternoon hunger strikes and you haven’t even planned dinner yet.
Carrot Pumpkin Spice Muffins
These muffins are incredibly moist when made with coconut oil and have the benefit of being gluten free! We love these baked into mini muffin tins and stored in the fridge.
Homemade root vegetable chips
Get your kids involved by letting them choose the root vegetables themselves (beets, sweet potato, white sweet potato, parsnip, etc) and delight them with the crispy, roasted results!
Veggies and Dip
Nearly everyone loves vegetables and ranch dressing but making it from scratch really elevates this classic combination. This yogurt based recipe takes this snack into healthier territory.
This one is more popcorn based than veggie, but it’s a great way to eat more mineral-packed seaweed!
EllieFinn’s Go Snacks!
When you’re out running errands and the kids ask for a snack, running home to chop up cucumbers is probably not an option but EllieFinn’s Go Snacks fill the gap for a convenient, veggie-based snack beautifully. Finn loves the Chocolate Sunflower flavor!
