32 Healthy Kids Snacks
Milk and cookies may be a classic, but these innovative after school snacks will put a new spin on snack time. Plus, get tips for feeding your picky eater
When I asked a friend with two young daughters what they like to eat she answered in just one word: "Cheese!"
"Not peanut butter and jelly?"
"Apples and oranges?"
"Only cheese. Sometimes tacos."
Ladies, this one is for you.
What you need:
- Small corn tortillas
- Shredded cheddar cheese
Mound a little salsa and cheese on each tortilla. Cook on foil-lined tray in toaster oven until cheese has melted and is brown at the edges.
Kids can help: Assemble the "pizzas," cover the tray with foil
Extras: A layer of refried beans under the salsa, cilantro for garnish, a dollop of sour cream or a sprinkle of finely chopped green pepper
