What are some fun healthy snacks to put in kids lunches?

I need to brain storm some new ideas. Kids are getting bored of carrots, grapes and pretzels.

  • try the graham crackers with cream cheese spread on it, cover with another, mmmmm also those yogurts that come with the mini container of granola on top, that you mix with the yogurt.
    You could also make your own trail mix. Put in a few different types of cereal, rasins, dried fruit, marshmellows, maybe a couple m&ms'

  • Dippin Stix! Lol, my new favorite snack. They have apples with a yogurt dip, or apples with a caramel dip!

  • My kids liked the fruit roll ups. I always put cookies, brownies or cupcakes into the lunch box. However, I don't think they are considered healthy snacks. Also, pretzels were welcome since they would share them with the others in the lunchroom.
