When I was class mom for my kids a million years ago we would make something called Ants on a Log. It was done with celery, peanut butter (which you can substitute with cream cheese because of allergies) and raisins. We would cut celery in half, give the kids the cream cheese on their plate and have them spread it into the celery, top with raisins and you have Ants on a Log. The kids loved it and it was healthy. I find when kids make things themselves they are more apt to eat it. We have also make homemade applesauce the kids loved that. There are so many easy recipes on line. You can do most of the prep work at home.
