The Perfect Snack for You and Your Kiddo (ft. Vancouver Dietitians)


SUMMER IS HERE


Almost...


This means day camps, the daily outings, and family trips. So, why not have the Perfect snack to bring along or pack for your kiddo?


We get it, packing food can be a nightmare sometimes, especially when your sandwich explodes in your bag and now there's mayo everywhere. Wouldn't it be nice to cut back on the time you prep food and have a delicious snack that's easy to pack up? Not to mention a tasty but healthy snack your kiddo will actually eat!


Our good friends, and registered dietitians, Alexandra Inman and Stephanie Dang, shared this EASY and DELICIOUS recipe for healthy Baked Banana Chocolate Oatmeal Cups.


These cups only take 30 minutes to whip up and are packed with fibre to help keep you and your kiddo fuller for longer. The more fuelled up your kiddo is, the less grumpiness you get to deal with. It's a win-win.


Oh yeah, did we mention the recipe can easily be gluten free or vegan if needed?
