Kid Snacks
February 1, 2010

Thanks for this email suggestion on a healthy kid snack… keep your suggestions coming!
I don’t know that these have a name but my kids love them.

Take a slice of dried beef and put enough fat free cream cheese spread on to cover, wrap around a dill pickle.

Another is banana heads.  Take half of a banana and spread peanut butter on the top half then dip the top in mini chocolate chips for hair and add a couple for eyes and nose.

I hope your weight loss is going well, I just started today as well.
