Healthy, growing children need to snack between meals for proper nutrition. Most West Hollywood parents have probably had the experience of forgetting an afternoon snack. What happens? Kids finally notice they’re hungry about an hour before dinner, and boy is it hard to wait!
A great snack ingredient is peanut butter. It is an inexpensive source of protein and calories and gives West Hollywood children the nutrients they need to grow and to stay healthy.
Here are some great healthy snack ideas using peanut butter for Tarzana and Brentwood kids.
Peanut Butter Banana Pops
Bananas, cut in half width-wise
Chopped nuts, sprinkles, or other topping
Take the popsicle sticks and push them carefully into the cut bananas. Spread peanut butter over the bananas and roll in nuts or other topping. Freeze. Enjoy.
Peanut Butter Balls
This is the kind of recipe you can’t really mess up, and the portions are approximate.
about 1 cup of peanut butter
a few tablespoons of honey (2-3)
a few tablespoons of instant dry milk
Mix everything together until it forms a large ball. Pinch off small pieces of dough, and roll into ball shapes. Store in the refrigerator, and pull them out at snack time.
