Ice Cube Snack Trays

May 16, 2012

A long while back, I shared a little bit about how we plan our meals, mentioning how the kids now make their own snack trays. I did promise to share in more detail…

One of the easiest ways to get more of the recommended 7 – 13 servings of (raw and fresh) fruits and vegetables into our children everyday is to prepare some Ice Cube Snack TraysIt’s not a novel idea, but the idea has stood the test of time because it works! When my kids were in school, I would prepare these ahead of time so that they’d have a nice healthful tray waiting for them when they got home. I would include raw fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds… with dippers such as applesauce, yogurt, and peanut butter in some of the compartments.

Here is Dr. William Sears, America’s foremost pediatrician…

In our family, using Ice Cube Snack Trays is one way we raise little grazers. We hope that we are building a foundation for lifelong health for them, and that they will continue to make good food choices into adulthood. What a fun and simple tool to use on this Nutrition Fruition journey!

Thats a great idea, and it looks so inviting! I did something kind of similar when I was a nanny… I would serve the little girl lunch in a muffin tin, with one item in each compartment! She would eat more of a variety of foods, if I served it this way, for some reason. LOL, kids are silly, but whatever works, right?
