It’s almost spring and we have spring fever at our house! This was the coldest and snowiest winter I’ve experience in Utah of all the 5 winters I’ve lived here. It didn’t help that I had morning sickness all January/February and no energy to get the boys out of the house. We are all excited for warm weather, trips to the park, walks outside and of course – Easter!

I’ve had fun putting together these “healthy kids snacks” round-ups now for Halloween, Valentine’s Day and now Easter.  If you’re in charge of class parties, play dates or just want to make something fun for your kids these healthy easter snacks are perfect!

Here is a tutorial video on how to make them all!

Healthy Easter Snacks! Perfect for class parties, play dates or if you just want to make something fun for the kids!

Carrot Hummus Cups

Baby carrots

Hummus

Parsley

Use a toothpick to make a hole in the top of each carrot. Break off a small piece of parsley and put it in the hole. Place the carrots in little cups (I like these disposable cups) of hummus.

Bunny Faces

Mini circle cheeses

Celery – cut into “whiskers”

Baby carrots – cut in half for ears

A large carrot – cut into a triangle for nose

Mini chocolate chips – for eyes

Assemble the bunny faces by pushing the baby carrots into the top of the cheese for ears. Place the rest of the pieces on to make a bunny face.

Chick Eggs

Hard-boiled eggs

1-2 teaspoons mayonnaise per egg

A large carrot – cut into a triangle for a beak

Mini chocolate chips – for eyes

Carrots/hummus to help the egg sit up

Cut the egg in at the 1/3 point. Carefully scoop out the yolk. Mash the yolk up with mayonnaise and scoop back into the larger egg portion. Top with the other 1/3 of the egg and add chocolate chips/carrots for the eyes/beak.

Healthy Crispy Rice Eggs

3/4 cup brown rice syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup peanut butter or almond butter (optional, omit for nut-free)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
4 cups crispy brown rice cereal (I use Erewhon brand)

Place the brown rice syrup, coconut oil and peanut butter in a saucepan. Melt over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 1-2 minutes then remove from the heat. Add the vanilla and sea salt and mix to combine. Add the crispy rice cereal and stir to evenly mix. Lightly grease a plastic egg. Using oiled hands, fill the eggs with the crispy rice mixture. It will be sticky and seem like it’s falling apart, but pack it in as tightly as you can. It will stay together once it cools. Place the eggs in the freezer for 20-3o minutes. Remove the eggs from the molds. Enjoy!
