The Most Ultimate {Epic!} Snack Cookbook Ever! (100+ Healthy Kids' Snack Recipes!) {www.TwoHealthyKitchens.com}

For those of you who remember our very, very first recipe post, (thanks for sticking right by our sides on this crazy-wonderful healthy eating journey, BTW!), you might recall that one of the main kick-in-the-seat-of-the-pants reasons we started THK was our quest to give our kiddos better-quality, healthier snacks.

Seemed like no matter how nutritious breakfast was, no matter how we planned and orchestrated delicious, healthy family dinners … snack time was where we often fell short. Somehow it just snuck up on us, and left us feeling guilty as we tossed pre-packaged snacks into the backseat while we dashed between soccer practice and dance (and beyond).

We wanted to do better!

We wanted to give our kids the high-quality protein and complex carbs that would fuel them through their busy little lives, the antioxidants that would help to keep them healthy … and also the yummy, satisfying flavors they craved.

We wanted that for our own kiddos, and we want it for yours, too.

And today, we’re making it uber-easy! We have (literally!) a cookbook’s worth of snack ideas … truly the only resource you’ll ever need!

More than 100 easy, healthy snacks for practically any snacking occasion!

  • Mid-morning classroom snacks for little ones who are allowed to pack a pick-me-up munchy
  • Lunchbox sides (to add to those great lunchbox mains we gave you last week)
  • Easy-to-pack, portable after-school snacks for when you’re on the go (also perfect for hiking, camping, and travel snacks, too!)
  • Refreshing yet healthy smoothies and popsicle snacks to welcome them off the bus on hot afternoons and help those wilting little ones get re-energized after a long, toasty day
  • Heartier snacks for growing bodies and those times they need something a bit more substantial to power them through
  • And lots of allergy-friendly, peanut-free and nut-free snacks (although some do contain nuts, so look closely if that’s a concern for you)
  • Psssst … some of these even do double-duty as lovely little apps! Adults will love these, too!

We truly have hand-picked these recipes to share with our own families, and with you. We’re not kidding when we say we’ve looked through every single one of these recipes at least two or three times, to be sure it’s something we feel good about sharing – recipes that sound just as delicious as they are healthy … and easy!

So keep your kiddos fueled up all day long with great ideas they’ll love munching on, and you’ll feel great serving!

Snack time? Problem solved!

Consider this your brand-new Healthy, Happy, Totally Epic Snack Cookbook!

    • Lol!! Yeah … this massive post sure did take a long time to compile! But we are so excited about each and every recipe … it’s a resource we’ll use forever!! And we hope you will, too! LOVE that applesauce recipe!! 😀 ~G&S

  1. Cannot begin to tell you how timely this post is! This past week, I did an inventory on my pantry & fridge to get rid of items that have more than 5 ingredients. And honestly, (humble brag), there really wasn’t much…EXCEPT for my kids’ snacks. My downfall is snacks we can take on the go…the ones that won’t destroy my carseat covers. This list is PERFECT. Definitely pinning it for later use. Well done!

    • You should totally humble-brag!! I can just imagine your awesome food selection … all totally yummy!!

      Kids’ grab-n-go snacks are always tough – but hopefully these recipes will keep your sweet kiddos happy for a looooonnnnggg time! 🙂 Thanks for the pin love, too! You’re the best! ~Gretchen

    • Oh! Can we talk for just a moment about how totally brilliant roasting the nectarines is?! Seriously genius, Julie!! We’re super stoked to have this list tucked away … excellent snack ideas always in reach! 😀 ~G&S

  2. Wow! What an amazing round up of snacks! I know I’ll be pinning these ideas for weeks–ha! And will my kids ever be surprised to see some of these as snacks after school this year. Thanks so much for including my Whole Wheat Pepperoni Pizza Bites in this roundup.
