Beat the Heat with Healthy Pool Side Snacks
Freeze half bottles of water overnight, and fill with water in the am. Great for keeping your foor cold, and great when the kids want something cold to drink. Freeze a few full bottles that will last until you are readyto leave.
Freeze slices of bananas rolled in chopped peanuts. They are easy, pop in your mouth snacks and taste just like ice cream. Bananas are also a quick burning carb so they will keep up the kids energy level.
Packed full of protein, boiled eggs are easy to transport and filling. Veggie sticks are a given – by themselves, or great dipped in hummus for a little extra oomph!
Sweet, refreshing, and delicious! Never frozen grapes before? It is so easy.
Who says muffins are just for breakfast? Packed full of healthy carbohydrates, they are the perfect pool snack to give your kids lots of energy. Make them ahead, freeze them and then pull a few out for your next trip to the pool.
Laughing cow cheese is one of our favorite snacks. It is great to bring to the pool – fast and convenient. It is delicious spread on veggie sticks, apples, pears, and crackers.
Homemade Lunchables: Cheese, turkey, whole-grain crackers and your favorite fruit. Great for a pool-side snack or lunch!
Edamame: This simple and quick snack is packed full of protein and fiber.
