Anyone else’s kids eating all the time these days? Mine are! It is a constant event when kids are home for school it seems. I found some stay at home snacks during quarantine to help us extend our time between grocery trips.
When you can’t shop multiple times a week, want to reduce how much you are spending on snacks, or just want to serve your kids healthy, inexpensive snacks these are great options.
Two of these snacks we just made for the first time. They are tasty! The others are some of our favorite stay at home snacks during quarantine to make at home. They are always a hit with the kids!
Homemade Stay at Home Snacks
These caught my eye immediately. The bark-like snack reminded me of a white chocolate dessert but much healthier.
The twins helped me make these. They mixed the yogurt and honey and placed the berries into the yogurt.
The recipe is simple. It only takes a few hours to freeze enough to break the bark into bite-sized pieces. All four of my kids enjoyed it!
Smoothies are a great snack for kids. They make a good quick breakfast item too. These 5 smoothie recipes give kids a yummy snack and allow you to sneak in some healthy ingredients that kids will find delicious too!
I absolutely love taking a food my kids dislike and changing it up. Kids can be picky, and I want to teach my kids to 1) appreciate they have food and 2) be willing to try and love healthy foods. These easy to make broccoli bites are a great snack.
Healthy Chocolate Pudding Fruit Dip
Taking a convenience treat and making it healthy can seem challenging. This unique twist on a kid-fave chocolate pudding turns a dessert treat into a healthier choice. It tastes so good!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Ice Cream Bites
I changed up this original recipe to make it healthier and temper the flavor for my kids. By simply adding a 1/2 cup of peanut butter the flavor is divine.
If your kids like bananas try the original 2-ingredient snack for kids. Adding the peanut butter was so easy, though if the banana flavor is too strong for your crew.
This is a quick snack recipe that makes a great stay at home snack during quarantine. The kids can help make it too!
Getting kids to help in the kitchen is a great way to encourage them to learn life skills. It also tends to give them a stronger reason to try new foods…because they helped make it!
Quick Breakfast Recipes or Snacks
Breakfast foods can be so versatile. My kids love eating hard boiled eggs as a snack. These breakfast ideas can make your morning routine simple or add to your snack options. Options are good with stay at home snacks during quarantine.
Finger foods are not only great for toddlers. They can actually give big kids the ability to prep their own lunches. Life skills and encouragement to eat what they make are both good things.
I love this simple way to present healthy lunch options for kids and they can be used so easily as snacks too.
Healthier Chocolate Pudding Pie
I took my healthy chocolate pudding and turned it into a healthy-ish dessert. We have to keep these long quarantine days fun. Inserting treats after lunch or as an afternoon snack can be a special treat for kids.
This chocolate pudding pie is so yummy! Save some for you too.
