5. Pita Sandwiches

Cut pita bread into small triangles and spread with peanut butter. Add your favorite veggie meat (peas, carrots, broccoli). Roll them up to create a cute little sandwich!

6. Cucumber Toddler Pickles

Take a cucumber and slice it into thin rounds. Mix 1/2 cup of water with one tablespoon of salt and pour it into a bowl.

Put your cucumber slices in the bowl, put a plate on top to submerge them, and let them sit for an hour. After they have soaked, drain off the liquid and rinse them thoroughly.

7. Fruit Spears

Slice an apple and a pear into thin circles and spread peanut butter on them (don’t overdo it). Take a lollipop stick and spear your fruit, then dip it in melted chocolate or candy coating.

8. Fruit Kabobs with Edible Glue

Place cut-up pieces of fruit (apples, pears, strawberries, etc.) on a skewer. Mix one tablespoon of water and two heaping tablespoons of powdered sugar in a small jar with a lid.

Add 3-4 drops of any food coloring you prefer. Pour the mixture over your fruit kabob.

9. Sandwich Toaster Treats

Take a piece of cheese and spread peanut butter on one side. Place another slice of bread (buttered or unbuttered) on top and cut into any shape you like (hearts, stars, etc).

Put the sandwich in your toaster oven and toast it until golden brown (be careful – you don’t want it to burn!).

10. Cheese and Veggies

Cut broccoli into florets, cut up an apple and a pear, and wash grapes. Put all your ingredients in a bowl and add 1 cup of cheese (cheddar or mozzarella will work).

Mix it until the cheese has melted.

11. Cupcakes Using Ice Cream Cones

Take a standard-size ice cream cone and fill it with any fruit. Top with whipped topping and sprinkles.

12. Fruit Leather

Take a banana, peel and cut it into slices, and spread it out on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.

Put the tray in the oven at 200 degrees Fahrenheit (90 degrees Celsius) for about 4 hours. Take the bananas out and let them cool completely before eating.

13. Graham Crackers

Mix two graham crackers with chocolate or peanut butter (if you want it extra tasty). Sandwich your crackers together to make a s’more sandwich.

14. Sweet Baby Ray’s Beef Jerky

Slice strips of beef jerky. Put a slice on a graham cracker and top it with a slice of cheese. Wrap the sandwich in foil before going to the beach so it won’t get soggy.

15. Veggie Dogs

Cut up your favorite veggie hot dogs (or use carrot sticks). Place them in a small container with a lid.

16. Popcorn Balls

Combine 1/2 cup of light brown sugar, 1/2 cup white corn syrup, and two tablespoons of water in a saucepan over medium heat.

Stir until the mixture boils, then remove from the stove. Pour one tablespoon of baking soda into a bowl and pour the candy.

Let it cool until you can touch it without getting burned. Roll the candy around in your hands to shape it into an oblong sphere (or whatever shape you like).

Cut string cheese into cubes and insert them throughout the ball of popcorn.

17. Frozen Fruit Bites

Dip a piece of fruit in melted chocolate or candy coating. Put on wax paper, or a cookie sheet covered with wax or parchment paper and freeze for at least 1 hour before eating.

18. Popsicles

Pour some juice (grapefruit, orange, pineapple) into popsicle molds. Put the popsicles in the freezer, and when they’re frozen, take them out and enjoy!
