 Some days it seems that all my kids want to do is eat, eat, EAT!!!! Those days may tire me out, but they go much smoother when I have some pre-made snacks on hand for the kiddos. So, once again I turned to my favorite resource for all-things-food…Pinterest. Today I’m sharing with you a some Easy Homemade Snacks you can have on-hand while you’re preparing for those Holiday meals.

Homemade Fruit Roll-Ups – I used to love these as a kid!! But who knew back then how bad they were for you? These great recipes are easy, packed with nutrition and NONE of those nasty, hard-to-pronounce ingredients we all want to avoid!

Frozen Berries Fruit Roll-Ups

 Fruit Leather

Real Fruit Roll-Ups

Jell-O Fruit Roll-Ups

Healthy Homemade Fruit Snacks – A fun and different option for those kiddos who aren’t quite ready for the fruit roll-ups. Here’s another recipe for Gummy Fruit Squares.


Frozen Yogurt Dots – I love yogurt and so do my kiddos. But sometimes it just gets messy when the Middles eat it. This is a perfect solution for those too little to handle their own spoon, but love to feed themselves! Plus, you can just grab a few from the freezer and go! Love this idea!!

Fruit, Just Fruit – Fruit is now our main snack since I was told not to mix fruit with other foods as it digests differently. But eating plain ol’ fruit can get boring really fast! So why not mix it up a bit with these fun ideas!!

Frosted Grapes

Apple Smiles

Rainbow of Fruit

Frozen Banana and Peanut Butter Bites

Raw Apple Stack

Frozen Yogurt Blueberries (or any other fruit for that matter)

Oven Dried Cranberries

Peanut Butter Yogurt with Fruit

Although fruit is our main snack around here, sometimes we do like to switch it up a bit and have granola bars or even some crackers. Here are some homemade versions of these favorite past-time snacks.
