back to school

Cupcake Project is a baking blog and you might think that I would suggest all kinds of super sweet frosted treats for back to school snacks.  Nope!  I want my son to learn about healthy eating and to enjoy food that’s good for his body.  Most of the time he gets fresh fruit or dried fruit for a snack.  But, on special occasions, I do give him these from-scratch versions of popular kiddo snack foods.  I love learning how to make snacks from scratch that one would normally buy in the store.  Plus, it’s fun to make these snacks together with your kids to help them understand how food is made.

Here are eight ideas for back to school snacks to enjoy…

Goldfish Crackers

1.  Homemade Goldfish Crackers

Goldfish are incredibly easy to make from scratch.  The only tricky part is cutting them all out so small.  However, there is really no need to do that.  You can make this treat together with your kids and experiment with all different kinds of shapes.

graham crackers

2.  Homemade Graham Crackers

I make round graham crackers (yeah, I’m a rebel!).  They taste just like the store-bought ones, but fresher.

Cheddar Crackers

3.  One Ingredient Cheddar Cheese Crackers

You can’t get much easier than crackers made with a single ingredient!

Nutella Banana Fruit Leather

4.  Homemade Banana Nutella Fruit Leather

I love homemade fruit roll-ups because you can completely control what you put in them.  These banana Nutella fruit rollups are favorites around here!

Pixy Stix

5.  Homemade Pixy Sticks

Pixy sticks?  Yes!  When you make them at home, you can control how much sugar you use.  I use fruit powder made by freezing dried fruit and I add sugar to taste.

Apple Chips

6.  Homemade Apple Chips

These apple chips are extra fun because you can make them in all different shapes.  We like to sprinkle a little cinnamon on them.

Cinnamon Toast Potato Chips

7.  Cinnamon Toast Potato Chips

These are fried, so I wouldn’t serve them too often.  But, a small bowl of from-scratch sweet and salty potato chips is a fantastic treat!

8.  Homemade Ritz Crackers

Homemade Ritz crackers with a little peanut or almond butter and a few carrots make for a great snack!

  1. It’s awesome in favor of me to have a site, which is good designed for my know-how.
    thanks admin

  2. In a manual like “Magnetic Sponsoring”, the information has to be generic and serve as
    a guide designed to help even the newest network marketer to become a magnetic sponsor.
    So I don’t have an electric guitar anymore; all mine are acoustic.
    By giving your presentation, calling prospects, distributing business card everywhere, you
    are unconsciously adopting what I call the hunter or
    seeker business model.
