A great rule of thumb is to try and incorporate fresh, whole foods into your summer snacks to keep you satisfied and ready to take on the day. These options below are great because they can be adapted for both kids and adults!
Healthy Summer Snack Ideas
Like we said, whole foods, and that's exactly what makes up these fruit kabobs! Plus, they offer great presentation if you want to take them to your next BBQ!
These little bites are great to pop in your mouth to cool off, or are even a great alternative to dessert. If you use Greek yogurt, you're also adding some protein which will keep you full longer!
Nothing says summer like watermelon, so depending on your crowd don't be afraid to get creative with it and cut it into sticks or shapes for added fun!
Popsicles are a classic way to cool off when summer heats up, but store bought varieties can be packed with sugar. Have fun making your own at home where you can control what goes into them!
Chop up your favorite veggies and fruits, like carrots, celery, cucumbers, apples, pineapple, or watermelon and then pair them with other tasty snack sticks like pretzels, cheese, and even whole wheat bread, all of which can be dipped into a healthy dip like hummus or a homemade greek yogurt dip!
The same suggestions above can be done in a bite size version to be eaten with toothpicks. Here you can even incorporate grapes, berries, cherry tomatoes and more. This is another great BBQ option too!
Or should we say "ice cream"? Frozen banana bites are delicious on their own, and if you puree them you've got yourself a bowl of healthy ice cream! Trust us, just try it!
