Do you need some quick and healthy snack ideas for the office or to pack the pantry and fridge for the kids this summer?
Fruits and vegetables are always Smart Snacking choices. But don’t miss these other ideas that Natasha has shared on the blog.
This Berry Parfait is perfect for summer. Fresh blueberries, strawberries and peaches soon will be available.
Homemade Honey-Cranberry Granola Bars are a good choice if you need a few more grams of fiber for the day. They also have fewer calories than most store-bought options.
Try this hummus with fresh carrots, celery, and cucumbers. Natasha shows you how to make it.
If you like spinach dip but want to avoid the calories and fat in the traditional version, check out this Spinach Dip Makeover. It’s also great with fresh veggies.
Peanut Butter Yogurt-Dipped Grapes are a great cool, sweet treat on hot days.
When you need an alternative to ice cream, this Razzleberry Shiver can do the trick. Shhh. Don’t tell the kids it’s loaded with fruit and fiber. You might even try it with strawberries if you like.
