5 Summer Snack Trays That Won’t Disappoint Mom or Child

Do you ever get tired of handing your kiddos the same snack over and over that isn’t living up to your nutritional expectations or pleasing their taste buds? I finally got tired of thinking about making food all day and the endless options I needed to come up with in order to meet the desires of all three of my tiny tots. So I started making snack trays that they can eat on all day long and provides them with options that are satisfying to both myself and them. Below I will provide you with five simple combinations of snacks to put into your tray.

The container I use is an inexpensive plastic veggie tray that has four places for snack options and one space for a dip. Add a dip to any snack and I guarantee your kiddos are more likely to gobble it up. I fill it up in the morning and we are good to go for the day.
