It's DD's turn to bring snacks for her girl scout troop. The leader asked that the parents bring healthy snacks. So, what have the other mother's brought? Brownies and capri sun, loft house cookies with apple juice, quaker granola bars and juice boxes etc...

What the heck?

DD understands that we will be bringing healthy snacks but, she doesn't want to be seen as weird.

So, I need help. It's just a quick snack at the end of their meeting. Honestly, I don't even see why they need snacks - they can go home and get something to eat if they want. But, they do it so I need suggestions on something healthy but not weird.

I was thinking of making bean cookies?

Too weird?

Any other suggestions?

Aw mmmmmmmooooooooooommmmmmmmmmm...



Urg social pressure, ain't it wonderful.

I would do something healthy-ish and not stress.

Fruit kabobs half dipped in chocolate
cheese meat and veggies with homemade ranch dip
homemade granola trail mix (with chocolate chips, so as not to be TOTALLY healthy! )
soaked oatmeal raisin cookies
apple hand pies
fruit leather


just throwing out ideas off the top of my head, hth!

I am not crunchy enough for this forum. Everyday I get a little crunchier though! :

I like the fruit leather idea but I think a meat & cheese plate would be easier. Or you could just bring some berries, what kid doesn't like berries??
You could also try some unsweetened coconut mixed w/ fruit/nuts & some dark chocolate as a no-bake cookie.

How many girls are in the troop? How about an apple each(88cents/lb at sprouts) and a small bottle of water?
Sprouts has oranges 3lbs for $1, you can send orange wedges and something to drink.
OHHHH pineapple is 97c each there too....

I see a small fruit plate for snacks at the troop meeting (and possibly for dinner at my house this weekend)

I too have been selected (once again) and I am feeling the pressure. I have been researching snack ideas for about a month since I signed up in 2013.

 

Last year I did fruit kabobs for snack. We were new to the troop and I wanted to do something fun. The kids loved them but my daughter hated the clean up so I am staying at this meeting to help her.

 

This time we are doing tortilla sandwiches. I will bring flour tortillas, meat, pre-sliced cheese and squeeze mayo and mustard. Each scout should be able to get 2 rolls and grab some fruit and enjoy a nice healthy snack.

 

Hope this helps but isn't it funny that we have more peer pressure in our kids activities than we did as teenagers? LOL
