End of year “Class Party” Healthy Food Suggestions

 

The children can participate in preparing these healthy party snacks, along with parent volunteers. It’s a good opportunity to provide families with these snack ideas to use at home.

 "VOLCANO" APPLE: 

Hollow out an apple with a small paring knife. 

Overfill it with non-sugar cereal, snack mix or a mixture of fruit

pieces. 

CRUNCHY CUCUMBER TOPPERS: 

With a fork, whip together pouches or canned, drained tuna with a

dollop of mayo and fat-free plain yogurt. 

Top cucumber slices with this creamy tuna. or if you prefer, top

slices with hummus. 

CHEESS-N-FRUIT: 

Slide two green or red grapes and a cube of low-fat mozzarella

cheese on a toothpick. Or try grape tomatoes instead of grapes. 

FRUIT SMOOTHIES:

In a blender, mix low-fat vanilla yogurt with frozen fruit and fat-free

milk. 

PIZZA MUFFINS: 

Lightly toast English Muffins. Add tomato sauce (buy one with no

sugar added), sprinkle low-fat mozzarella cheese on top. If you have

a microwave available, microwave for 15 seconds to melt the cheese

for a tasty treat.
