    Default Healthy No-Cook Snacks for the kids.

    Try these healthful, no-cook snacks. They're easy and fun to make, and depending on your child's age, require little or no adult supervision.

    Snack Kebobs. Cut raw vegetables or fruit into chunks. Skewer
    them onto thin
    pretzel sticks. (Note: To prevent discoloration, dip apples,
    bananas, or
    pears in orange juice after they're cut.)

    Veggies with Dip. Cut celery, zucchini, cucumbers, or carrots into
    sticks or
    coins. Then dip them into prepared salsa or low fat dip.

    Banana Pops. Peel a banana. Dip it in yogurt, then roll in
    crushed breakfast
    cereal, and freeze.

    Fruit Shake-Ups. Put 1/2 cup low fat fruit yogurt and 1/2 cup cold
    fruit
    juice in a non-breakable, covered container. Make sure the lid is
    tight.
    Then shake it up, and pour into a cup.

    Pudding Shakes. Use the same technique for making fruit
    shake-ups, but
    instead mix 1/2 cup cold milk with 3 tablespoons of instant
    pudding.

    Sandwich Cut-Outs. Using cookie cutters with fun shapes, like
    dinosaurs,
    stars, and hearts, cut slices of cheese, meat, and whole-grain
    bread. Then
    put them together to make fun sandwiches. Eat the edges, too.

    Peanut Butter Balls. Mix peanut butter and bran or corn flakes in
    a bowl.
    Shape them into balls with clean hands. Then roll them in
    crushed graham
    crackers.

    Ice Cream-Wiches. Put a small scoop of ice cream or frozen
    yogurt between
    two oatmeal cookies or frozen waffles. Make a batch of these
    sandwiches
    ahead, and freeze them.

    Ants on a Log. Fill celery with peanut butter or cream cheese.
    Arrange
    raisins along the top.
