“Mama, I want a snack!” It’s the sentence I hear about 5 times (or more) during the course of the day. It gets my wheels turning every time. If I didn’t care what my daughter put inside her body this would be a no-brainer. But I do, as I’m sure we all do to a certain degree.
I try for the most part to keep Mabel gluten free. I also try and watch her sugar intake because our two year old is high on life as it is. When we travel it proves to be very difficult but when we are home I keep her on track without going overboard. Everything in moderation is our motto in general. Luckily for us, Mabel is a great eater. I mean the kid eats greens. I hardly eat greens! But don’t mess with her snacks because she Loves them. It’s just finding the right snacks to put in front of her that proves to be most challenging for me.

Whatever yogurt you like. I use So Delicious
A small plastic bag
A small plate/tray that will fit in your freezer
Wash your berries.
Add yogurt into the plastic bag. Cut the tip of the bag
Fill your raspberries up and put them in the freezer.
Preheat over to 275 F
1 head Kale, washed and thoroughly dried. You can also find bagged organic Kale. It’s already washed which makes it much easier. No one will judge you for using it!
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Sea salt to sprinkle
Remove the ribs of the kale and cut into a 1-½ pieces
Lay them on the baking sheet. Drizzle the olive oil and sprinkle the salt. Toss all together.
Bake until crisp, turning the leaves halfway through, about 20 minutes
Please feel free to leave me some snack ideas! Because I’m stumped!
