I thought I'd throw in a quick post today. I'm always looking for healthy snacks for kids. With three kids to manage, it's also important that it's quick and easy. I found a tasty a M&M peanut butter pretzel banana pop at the Sweet Spot that the kids love!
It's a great, fun afterschool snack! The combination of the banana, pretzel and peanut butter are just enough to tie the kids over until dinner and the M&Ms are always a nice treat! Jacob has even started preparing these himself.
Cut the banana in half and place it on a popsicle (craft) stick. Coat the top of the banana with peanut butter (almond butter or soy butter are also options) and roll or sprinkle the banana with a crushed pretzel and m&m mix. If the banana is super ripe/soft, I place the banana on a popsicle stick last because I've found that softer bananas may split.
