Ants on a Log

It’s been fun making the kid-friendly breakfasts in my previous posts. I like giving Willow something different or fun to wake up to. And I have been pleasantly surprised by her acceptance of new foods. It’s taught me that I just need to offer them to her (duh). That I can say no to cereal, the world won’t end! Though sometimes it can feel that way when a toddler is whining!

I want to try out some recipes for snacks and lunches also. I have so many and lots of them are fun and easy for kids to make too. Ants on a Log are a popular healthy snack for kids, at least here in the US. Spread some peanut butter onto celery sticks and place a few raisins (ants) on top. Nice and quick.

I had some celery in the fridge recently that I knew wouldn't all get eaten so I made this for Willow. I didn’t have much faith in the celery going over well though I have to say. It's one vegetable I always hated growing up and still do now unless it's cooked in a soup or something and I just cannot imagine how anyone can eat it raw.

Turns out I was right about the celery (my child is normal!). She just licked the peanut butter off and ate the raisins. But this can be made the same way using apples or a banana etc instead of celery.

Haha! I would like celery if it wasn't so stringy. I didn't mind it as much when I was a kid, but now..I'd rather not. ;)

This was my favorite snack when I was little...but you know what my mom substituted for cookies; so that kind of explains me loving the celery.
