I am trying to think of some new ideas for homemade and healthy snacks for my kids.
I am looking for stuff that can be made ahead and then pulled out and taken on the go.
I've made fruit leather, granola balls, peanut butter balls, which are all pretty good, but I wish I was more creative!!
Thanks for any ideas!
I just did a batch of corn bread (with onion, capsicum and zucchini) and a date loaf. Both of them freeze well and can be microwaved or taken with you frozen to thaw until you're ready to eat.

meatloaf in muffin tins
salad wrapped in rice papers (my kids love these, and I'll just do a drizzle of peanut sauce inside as I wrap them

My kids love muffin tins... I never thought about doing meatloaf in them! Great idea:)
Some of my personal favorites that are tasty, portable and kid friendly -
apple hand pies
home made beef/venison jerky (if you have a dehydrator)
chewy oatmeal cookies
And I agree with Katelove - corn bread with peppers is great. We do ours with jalapenos and sometimes bake them as muffins for portability.

My daughter really needs protein to be even tempered. Boiled eggs are good for on the go - simple and they have their own package plus I don't worry about them spoiling quite as quickly as meat would.

You could try cutting up a bunch of fruit and putting it in a big bowl in the refrigerator.
You could make a shelf just for the kids in the refrigerator and but celery sticks, cheese sticks ECT. on it
YOu could make a place in the kitchen for HEALTHY snacks only that they can eat between meals. You could put granola bars, celery sticks, carrots, fruits and maybe some healthy dip! ECT. those are my snack ideas!
