Getting Creative With Healthy Treats!

Rowan and I have been getting creative with healthy eating recently. When we held a snowman competition on Facebook last month, we were inspired, so we set out to make fun, healthy, yummy snowmen snacks. And here's what we ended up with! 

We rolled banana slices in unsweetened coconut flakes. Then we poked mini chocolate chips in for the eyes and mouth. Pomegranate seeds worked well for buttons and we used apple peels for the arms. Then we held them all together with a toothpick. The only ones we had were ones with little umbrellas on top, but I think they look pretty cute. And there you have it! An army of little banana snowmen! Try this at home and gobble as many up as you'd like!

We'd love to hear about your favorite healthy snacks. Post pictures of your kids eating a healthy yummy snack as comments to this blog or onto the Lolly & YoYo Facebook page. At the end of the weekend, we'll pick a winner. And this time, the winner will get a gift certificate for two free brunches at one of our favorite healthy restaurants, the Lovin' Oven in Frenchtown New Jersey! Yummy!

Love, Lolly
