School Snacks

Natalie started kindergarten a fews ago and it has been busy. A little bit of homework every night, early bedtimes, and bathtime at night so we don't have to get up so early. It's been a whirlwind but she really loves her teachers and she is learning a lot already. We volunteered to bring in snacks for the class two days every other month. I cut up some strawberries and put 6 of them in snack ziplocs. I also got two tubs of fat free cool whip and put them in snack size cups for each child. Natalie said everyone liked strawberries but one person. So I would say that was pretty good. Next snack day we are doing low fat cheese sticks and wheat crackers. Anyone have any better snacktime ideas? The snacks can't be high in sugar.

My daughter just started Kindergarten to and I know they want to keep it healthy. You can make a kids trail mix which is teddy grams, marshmallows, dried fruit and m+m's or chocolate chips. Or the celery sticks with PB and raisins on top. Or Cut apples into wedges. Smear peanut butter on one side of 2 wedges. Stick a few marshmallows on the peanut butter on one of the apple wedges and top with the other apple wedge - peanut butter side down. When you look at this it looks like a smile (the red part of the apple are the lips and the marshmallows are the teeth!) Hopefully these are helpful I found these on the internet on different sites.
