  • Does Spark People have a NUT FREE version of kid-friendly snack ideas? I WISH I could offer my child peanut butter and nuts - but sadly, that option is off the table. I've had a hard time introducing seeds without LOTS of sugar (e.g. maple syrup or honey)... I'd love to see a sequel / reboot of this article for nut sensitive folks! - 9/8/2015 3:36:09 PM

    Nut butter and water??? Oh I don't know....I really think mixing a teaspoon of dark chocolate chips would be better on maybe a rice cracker? Or just eaten directly off the spoon :D - 8/6/2014 8:55:12 AM

    Thanks for the inspiration! My kids go crazy for a fresh, warm loaf of homemade bread right out of the oven. They consider it a great snack with some cheese or cold cuts any time of day. For the recipe I have nick-named "the spontaneous breadmaker's dream come true!"
    GO TO
    and read the blog post for Super Quick and Incredibly Easy Homemade Bread from April 20/14. Each recipe prepares enough dough for 2-3 loaves, and it can be baked after only a few hours OR refrigerated for up to 3 weeks for a warm loaf of homemade bread whenever the urge strikes! - 4/20/2014 7:59:40 AM

  • I was disgusted today in the grocery store when I noticed a sign above the packaged donuts and other assorted pastries that said, "Great, easy snack idea for after school!" This list is much better. - 8/26/2011 10:28:19 PM
    I use melted peanut butter as a dip for a sliced apple. Put 1 or 2 TBSP of your favorite peanut butter into a small microwavable dish & nuke it on high for 60-90 seconds. It's a very fillng snack. - 8/26/2011 5:47:00 PM
