7 Kid-Friendly Fruit Snacks

Do you have trouble getting your kids to eat more fruit? Kids have a natural tendency to enjoy sweet foods, but sometimes parents need to go the extra step to make sure their children are eating enough fruit. Here are some creative fruit snack ideas that will be a hit every time:

Fruit Sushi

Sushi is a fun treat, but for kids, it’s even better with fruit! Fruit sushi is a fun project to make with kids, who’ll be willing to eat it just because they played a part in making it. Thin slices of fruit are rolled with sticky sushi rice to make his delicious treat. Let your kids dip their “frushi” into a dollop of whipped cream to make it even more delicious!

Fruit Shapes

Do your kids typically think that eating fruit is boring? They won’t if the fruit is cut into fun shapes! Wash and peel the fruit. Slice the fruit into flat shapes using a sharp knife. Have your kids press cookie cutters into the fruit. Encourage them to be creative and they’ll be excited to eat fruit more often!

Fruit Kabobs

Do your kids love to eat their food on sticks? If so, these fruit kabobs will be a real hit! Fruit is cut into small pieces and arranged on kabobs to make this colorful, but healthy treat. If your kids are craving something a little more decadent, drizzle chocolate syrup on the fruit kabobs just before serving.

Ice Pops

While store-bought ice pops are usually high in sugar and calories, these homemade treats use fresh fruit so they are a lot healthier. They’re so full of flavor that your kids won’t even know the difference! Fresh fruit is blended with juice and honey to make a rich treat that’s also healthy. Even though this recipe calls for blueberries, you can use any kind of fruit that you want.

Chocolate-Dipped Fruit

Even if your child isn’t crazy about fruit, there’s a good chance they love chocolate! Fruit such as strawberries, pineapple, apples, and even grapes taste great when paired with chocolate. To make this recipe even more fun, try using different kinds of chocolate.

Berry Ice Cream Shake

Children usually love ice cream shakes. Unfortunately, they aren’t that good for you. This strawberry milkshake is a great compromise. In this recipe, ice cream and milk are blended with fresh strawberries. If you don’t have strawberries on hand, the recipe also works well with other berries, such as blueberries and raspberries. You can also blend in a banana for an extra nutrition boost.

Fruit Roll-Ups

Fruit snacks that you find in the store are usually loaded with sugar. Some may not even contain any fruit, only artificial flavors! Try making this snack at home instead. Homemade versions use plenty of fresh fruit and are much healthier than store-bought versions. The nice thing is you can use any kind of fruit you want!

By trying these recipes, you’ll have no problem getting your kids to eat more fruit!
