It seems as though children get to a point where, quite suddenly, they might eat you out of house and home, doesn't it? My son is 7 and today his appetite was insatiable, and this is coming from a guy who usually is quite a picky eater. So I have been trying to stock my kitchen with good eats for me and my kids that are quick and "cook-less". Here are some wholesome snacks popular around our house this summer:
any fruit; fresh mango, ranier cherries, strawberries, raspberries.
chunks of smoked > Star Prairie trout .
local strawberries alone, or with cream and a bit of
> palm sugar .
hard boiled eggs, or just the yolks as my son likes them sans white (I do too).
Marcona almonds with raisins.
sliced banana stackers; top each slice with sprouted almond butter.
Applegate farms lunch meats- Genoa salami, roast turkey breast, rolled over a slice of cheese, or by itself.
cold bacon and pancakes (made with soaked whole wheat flour and buttermilk), leftover from breakfast.
Greek-style yogurt with a bit of honey (I use Ames farm honey), or, even better, > sheep's milk yogurt parfait; simply add a bit of maple syrup, dehydrated coconut flakes, chopped nuts, dried cranberries and whatever else you like to this delicious yogurt.
chunks of avocado sprinkled with sea salt and balsamic vinegar (my kids aren't keen on the vinegar but I am).
