Snack Idea for Kids: The Coral Snake Snack

snack idea for kids

After a fun day of learning at Reading Kingdom, there’s no better way to celebrate than with a cool snack!  Today, our friends at Super Healthy Kids share the fun snack idea for kids, the “Coral Snake Snack”:

Although Erica thought this snack looked more like a caterpillar, and TJ asked if they were supposed to be dragons, everyone was intrigued.  To make the snake, we skewered slices of strawberries and bananas until we had a snake body.  This could supplement a great lesson if you wanted to talk about Coral Snakes!

To make this snack more filling, I included some

Neufchatel cheese Wraps

  • 1 whole wheat wrap
  • Neufchatel cheese to spread
  • Strawberry jam
  • bananas

Spread cheese, jam, and bananas on the wrap. Roll up and eat.  Making wraps is so much easier when you buy the large product labeled wraps.  Often I will purchase whole wheat tortilla’s for my wraps, but they just don’t roll up as well as the product labeled as wraps.

Neufchatel cheese is a great substitute for cream cheese.  With 1/3 the fat of cream cheese, I think it’s just as delicious as full fat cream cheese.  It’s softer, creamier, and perfect for spreading!
