The holidays make eating healthy extra difficult between the hectic schedule and the abundance of sugary desserts. Having a healthy snack that can be made quickly with ingredients you already have will help keep your kids happy while letting you keep your sanity.

I came up with this idea when babysitting our friends two kids, ages five and seven. The criteria was simple: A snack made of inexpensive ingredients I had on hand, an activity to keep ge the kids involved, and ingredients that are healthy but taste like a treat.

Apple Nachos

Ingredients:

1 apple per child, sliced very thin

Toppings of your choice

I used:

Chocolate Chips

Peanut butter melted for 30 seconds to create a sauce

Shredded coconut

Raisins or dried fruit

broken pretzel pieces

What to do:

Mom or dad will need to slice the apples and get things set up. The kids really enjoyed having the toppings set up like an ice cream sundae bar. I put about 2 Tablespoons of each topping in a small dish with spoons.

Then let the kids top their apples with any combination they’d like.
