3 Easy Snacks to Keep Your Kids Happy

Let’s face it, snacks are boring. Breakfast gets the fancy frittatas and eggs Benedict, expect gourmet sandwiches at lunch and we all attempt to channel our inner chefs for dinner. But snacks? Hello, orange slices and carrot sticks. Who has time for fancy snacks?! While we’ll always have a love-hate relationship with snack duty, we’re stepping up our snack game this spring with these three easy recipes that will be a fan favorite no matter the occasion!

Banana Bites for the Lazy Mom

A banana, peanut butter and wheat tortilla, it really is as simple as 1, 2, 3! These roll-ups are perfect for the day before the grocery run when your fridge and pantry options are limited. Made with ingredients you almost always have on hand, they are delicious, full of protein and, of course, painfully easy.

Salsa is one of our favorite go-tos because it’s so simple (like really simple) but tastes as if you’ve been slaving away all day making it. The big secret? Chop up the ingredients and mix them together, then season to taste and serve alongside tortilla chips, or for a healthy switch, your favorite sliced veggies. We told you these were going to be easy.


Today, Pace is one of the top-selling brands of salsa, but the Pace family originally made their name producing cane molasses in Louisiana.
