It’s that time of year again when I’m starting to run out of homemade snack ideas. Even though I just had a break from baking treats/snacks, I feel like a need some new ideas and inspiration.
I want my kids to have a little treat in their lunch everyday but I also want it to be somewhat healthy. That’s when I thought about making these Homemade Strawberry Nutri Grain Bars. My kids like the store-bought version but I don’t tend to buy them often. So I knew these would be a hit if they found them in their lunch bags.
When the kids got home from school they wanted to have another one of these bars for a snack. Yes! They were a hit! These bars are something I can make again for their lunches, especially since I can change up the fruit inside to whatever I have on hand.
Next time I make these I’m definitely making a double batch since this recipe only makes 8 bars. That doesn’t last long in my house! I know these wouldn’t go to waste with three growing kids who love to eat!
This week I’m going to make it my mission to come up with some more healthy snack ideas so that I can send my kids to school with tasty, nutritious snacks and avoid the store-bought treats. Everyone, I’m sure, gets stuck in a rut with it comes to their kids lunches so I hope I can give you some inspiration in the coming weeks!
