I need some ideas for healthy, organic, peanut free snacks for my sons preschool snack!

At my son's preschool we have to bring snack once a month- the snack has to be organic, peanut free and fairly healthy- BUT I want the kiddos to actually eat it too! Celery sticks are out of the question because my own picky kid won't eat them...is there anything I can do that is fun AND healthy?

  • Have you checked out your organic isle at the grocery store yet? They really have some good stuff and no it doesn't taste bad, just more money but it's worth it.

  • Yes they do have them but every store is different on what they have. Here we have a grocery store that is nothing but organic. Most grocery stores have an isle or two with just organic then the dairy and frozen near by. Maybe check your local area and see if one is near you.

  • Colored Popcorn (met butter, Add Food coloring Paste Pour Over Popcorn)

    Snow Cones (freeze Fruit Juice In Ice Cube Trays, Blend A Few Cubes At A Time)

    Aquarium Gelatin
    1 small box blue or green gelatin
    1 cup boiling water
    1 cup cold water
    24 gummy fish
    1 cup whipped cream
    Fish crackers (optional)

    Make gelatin according to package directions. When it's slightly cooled, divide it among six plastic cups.

    When gelatin is partially set, add three or more gummy fish to each cup. Place cups in refrigerator for 2 hours, or until gelatin is firm.

    At serving time, top with whipped cream to form "surf." Serve with fish crackers, if desired.
