This healthy recipe will delight your little ones and have you wanting to feed them chips as a snack!  Low in calories and high in nutrition value, these chips take nearly no time to prepare and call for three ingredients.  Storing these chips in an airtight container will allow you to have a homemade, healthy snack for weeks to come.

What you’ll need:

  • Apples (Honey crisp taste the best!)
  • Cinnamon, for seasoning
  • Granulated sugar, for seasoning

Preheat your over to 200°F.  Prepare at least three fresh apples by cutting them into thin slices.  Any apple cultivar will do, though you may want to use Honey crisp apples for their sweetness and firmness.  Layer the thin slices onto a baking sheet and dust some cinnamon and granulated sugar as desired.  Insert the tray into the over and bake for at least an hour.  Remove them from the oven, flip them over, and bake for another hour.  Once the chips are crisped to your likeness, take them out of the over and let the snack cool down for at least an hour.

Snowman Bento Boxes: Make Lunch Fun!

Let’s be honest, putting together your kids lunch can get pretty routine. So rather than bagging away the very same uninteresting sandwich (not to say its not delicious), potato chips and juice box lunch, consider a strategy inspired by the Japanese meal, with a wintery twist!

We came across these snowman bento box lunches and were immediately inspired. Bento boxes are essentially dishes within compartmentalized meal containers, delivering lunch in little bites, frequently made along with some whimsical in design. WIth these winter inspirations your little one’s lunchbox will begin to appear like a mini winter wonderland!

A quick and easy Bento Box Snowman: Use the rice to make the snowman’s body by rolling them into balls then place the vegetables such as a carrot for the nose and pieces of vegetables for the eyes and mouth. You can even dress him up with a salad such as a lettuce dress or pants.
