‘Eat, sleep, snack, repeat.’
Come summer and this seems to be the mantra kids follow, with ‘play’ replacing the ‘sleep’ part. Eating and snacking seem to make up a major portion of kids’ holidays, especially when they are at home throughout the day.
Here are 4 fun summer snack ideas for preschoolers which are both easy to come up with and yummy too.
Choco cherry smoothie: Get hold of some frozen cherries, cranberry or raspberry juice, yogurt, milk and if possible some chocolate or hazelnut spread. Mix all to make a puree, serve with vanilla ice cream.
Watermelon ice lolly: Blended chunks of fresh watermelon poured into small paper cups and topped with a small pile of chocolate chips need to be popped into the freezer till they are frozen.
Frozen strawberry yogurt: Stir sugar with freshly sliced strawberries in a bowl, let it stand for half an hour, blend in a mixer, add yogurt plus fresh lemon juice and freeze for a perfect cool treat.
Tortilla pizza: Kids can help with this one – allow them to add some salsa and cheese on each tortilla and toast in the oven till they are deliciously crispy golden brown.
