My daughter LOVES when I make her "fruit kabobs"...just cut up fruit and put it on a grilling skewer.

Something else she loves is banana sushi...take a rolling pin, flatten out a piece of bread, spread some peanut butter on and then take a peeled banana, lay it along the long side of bread, roll it up and then cut into sections.

I'm a big fan of string cheese, too.

Good Luck!

We're playing soccer, so I tried to find some healthy things for after the game. So far, the favorites are ants on a log (peanut butter on celery with raisins on top) and orange slices.

Hi S.,
I usually keep a fruit bowl out with different fruits, and they usually disappear quickly. I also done cheese slices and crackers. My daughter is allergic to peanut butter, but i used to do peanut butter with my fruit and she does a yogurt.
You could also do a chex mix or a trail mix. I also have done smoothies for a snack.

I do after school child care so I have to be creative since I am feeding hungry second and fourth graders as well as one in Kindergarten.
I do cheese quesidillas, butter one side of a tortilla, put face down on a big pan then add cheese and a top tortilla with butter, do like you would a grilled cheese sandwich, cut into fours and make two or three like that. The kids here LOVE this!!!!
I cut up apples, do bananas,grapes, strawberries when in season and offer graham crackers, goldfish, cheese crackers too.
Before the peanut butter scare I did the prepackaged peanut butter crackers too.
Basically I do something substantial like the quesidillas and a side of fruit when they get home.
Even getting chicken nuggets, some dipping sauces and serving those when on sale. Getting a cheap cheese pizza and cutting it into squares too.
