Healthy Fall Snacks for Kids

If you’re looking for kid-friendly, healthy snacks for fall, look no further! Care Courses has tested out three fun and easy recipes that are sure to be a hit with the children in your care!

Party Pumpkins 
Serves one

You will need: 
1 clementine 
1 celery stick

What to do:

1. Peel the clementine

2. Cut the celery stick in half lengthwise, then cut it in half across

3. Take the newly cut celery stick in the hole in the middle of the clementine.

Boo-nanas

You will need: 
1 ripe banana 
2 raisins

What to do:

1. Peel banana and cut it in half

2. Keeping the cut part of the banana at the bottom, cut one raisin in half and place the pieces where “eyes,” then use the whole one as a mouth. Repeat with the other half of the banana.

Note: We chose “baby” bananas, but full-sized ones will work as well.

Spooky Halloween Smiles Makes about five “smiles”

You will need:

1 apple, quartered and core removed – you may use either red or green apples, the green ones make the “gums” look especially creepy 5 tbs Sunbutter (or other preferred nut-free alternative spread) ¼ cup of raisins

What to do: 1. Take one apple quarter, slice it in half lengthwise, then again lengthwise. 2. Take one of the new pieces, spread peanut butter on it, then arrange the raisins so that they stick out. Think “teeth!” 3. Once you’ve arranged the teeth how you want them, place another apple slice on top.

Notes: Sliced almonds can be used in place of raisins. If you don’t plan to serve these right away, brush the apples with lemon juice so they don’t brown. Feel free to substitute all-natural, creamy peanut butter if there are no children with nut allergies.
