Making Easter fun for kids by whipping up cool and festive snacks is a great way to brighten up the holiday but parents need to make sure that the treats are healthy. Too many sugar-filled snacks will inevitably take a toll on your child’s health. Luckily, there are countless ways to make Easter food fun for kids without putting their health at risk.
We’ve scoured the web for fun and festive snacks for kids this Easter season. The best part? They’re all perfectly healthy!
If you’re looking for ways to keep your little bunnies bright-eyed and bushy-tailed this holiday season, consider whipping up one of these healthy snacks:
1. Healthy Fruit and Vegetable Bunny Snack
Great for an after school or post egg hunt snack! You can use apples, strawberries, blueberries, cheese cut in circles, carrots, cucumber, and mini almonds but feel free to get creative with what you have on hand! You can even pre-cut everything and have your kids put together their own bunny!
2. Bunny Easter Lunch
This Easter, send your kids to school with this fun and festive bunny rabbit sandwich lunch. It doesn’t get any cuter than this when it comes to a cool Easter lunch!
3. Egg Carton Lunch Snacks
This is one of the best ideas I came across when looking for cool Easter snack ideas. What makes this idea so cool is you can completely customize it to suit your child’s preferences. Choose your child’s favorite snacks (grapes, fish crackers, cheese etc) and maybe throw in one sugary treat (like fruit snacks or mini cookies) to make it a little more fun!
4. Fruit and Peep Kabobs
This snack is perfect for those of you with multiple children running around during Easter. You can use any diced or small fruit for the cabobs (melons and cantaloupes work well), grapes and then one little sweet treat of a marshmallow Peep. This festive fruit/veggie tray will be a huge hit with your kids this year!
5. Easter Bunny Pancakes
These adorable bunny pancakes are a great way to kick off Easter morning or a cool afternoon snack in the days leading up to Easter. Whether you use them for breakfast or a midday snack, your kids will love the festive look (and delicious taste) of these precious pancakes.
6. Easter Bunny Biscuits
Want an easy and fun Easter morning breakfast? Whether you have kids or not – what is better on Easter morning than Bunny Biscuits? If you do have kids, get them involved and let them help you form the bunny’s ears and whiskers!
7. Fruit Pizza
A easy to make, colorful and fun fruit pizza is made perfectly customized for pizza by being shaped like the iconic Easter Egg.
8. Cute Deviled Egg Chicks
Cute deviled egg chicks have become one of the most popular Easter food trends of the past year (thanks to Pinterest). These particular guys use pimento-stuffed olive slices for the eyes and little pieces of carrot for the feet and beaks. Everyone will love these healthy and fun snacks this Easter weekend!
