Does anyone else struggle with church snack ideas??? Since we don't do processed snacks our options are limited on things that will not make a sticky mess. Even when we use to do crackers and such there was a crumb mess so that it did not work either.
Ideally I should be able to feed my kiddos before we leave for church but my children graze. I feel that is a healthy way to eat, small HEALTHY meals through out the day. So church is a long time for them to go without a snack.
They enjoy raw nuts, grapes and other easy choices but I just thought up some new ideas that I am really excited about.
Really any dehydrated fruits are a big hit but also carrots and corn or really yummy and sweet. I was shocked when I tried the corn. It was crispy and sweet.
CULTURED REDUCED FAT MILK, SUGAR, STRAWBERRY PUREE, NONFAT DRY MILK, TAPIOCA STARCH, GELATIN, NATURAL STRAWBERRY FLAVOR, LACTIC ACID ESTERS OF MONO- AND DIGLYCERIDES, FRUIT AND VEGETABLE JUICE COLORS, SODIUM ASCORBATE (VITAMIN C), ALPHA TOCOPHERYL ACETATE (VITAMIN E), VITAMIN A ACETATE
I did not have to see the label to know that these were not for use BUT I thought hey I can make something like that. So I came home and searched online and there you go. Yogurt drops.
Anyway, just drop nickle size dropson your dehydrating tray (the one made for liquid) and dehydrate until it easily comes off the tray. Once complete keep in a air tight container. Enjoy!
Tonight I'm dehydrating sweet potatoes with seasonings so they will be like a healthy potato chip.
Why Dehydrate? According to the Energise for Life website, "The dehydration process retains almost 100% of the nutritional content of the food, retains the alkalinity of fresh produce and actually inhibits the growth of microforms such as bacteria."
Any other ideas?
