Reindeer Snacks

Reindeer Snacks - Family Fresh Meals

The holidays are a great time for delicious snacks, like Holiday Muddy Buddies Chex Mix and Andes Chocolate Toffee Bark. Unfortunately, most of these tasty treats just aren’t that healthy. They’re great for dessert, but they’re not exactly what you want your kids – or you – to be munching on all the time.

The problem is, with all those delicious holiday treats sitting around, how are you supposed to get your kids to eat healthy snacks – like fresh veggies? How can you possibly tempt them with celery sticks when they know there are cookies waiting?

The answer: you turn those celery sticks into reindeer!

Reindeer Snacks - Holding celery stick with peanut butter and pretzels

These Reindeer Snacks are a variant of good old Ants on a Log – that classic threesome of celery, peanut butter, and raisins – but instead of the raisins, you add pretzel “antlers” and candy eyes and noses. So this snack has just a little bit of indulgence, along with a healthy dose of fresh veggies and protein-filled peanut butter.

These little reindeer are so cute, no kid can resist them. They’ll happily gobble them up, and you can save your Christmas cookies for dessert.

NOTE: If you cannot find candy eyes (affiliate link), you can just use extra m&ms for eye.
