Mama, I'm Hungry! | Easy Kid-Friendly Snack Ideas


I have lost count of the times I've heard my kids ask for a snack. I think they eat all day which is great, but I feel like I run out of ideas and we always have the same snacks. As soon as I get the last meal cleaned up I am getting the next snack out. So, my friends and I were talking about needing some new snack ideas and BOOM a list was formed! Thanks gals! *wink wink*

I love lists because "Mom-brain" is a serious thing over here folks. The other day I was talking with a friend at the pool while one child was hanging on me, the other just got done kicking water as they swam away, and it was like my brain just hit 'restart' for a second. So lists are necessary for me. I thought it may be helpful to share this snack list with you. I want to hear your go-to snacks that your kiddos love as well.
