Simple Summer Snacks

Summer produce boasts various delicious fruits and veggies that we wait all year to enjoy.  Watermelon, juicy cantaloupe and berries bursting with flavor are a few of my favorite summer treats.   The summer months are often filled with loads of outdoor activities which leave your schedule jam-packed.  For good reason, these summer months are what memories are made of and what your children look forward to as they dredge through the cold winter months.  

But a lot of time outside can leave less time in the kitchen, which is precisely why I commit to choosing a few simple, healthy snacks for the kids (and myself) as we are out and about, and rotate them through the season.  Healthy eating doesn't have to be complicated, and a quick snack doesn't have to be a bag of potato chips.  It can be much, much more delicious...

Here are a few of my favorites:

Fruit Kabobs.  

Slide any of your favorite fruits on a kabob stick, and you've got a portable snack with no guilt.  Some delicious fruit in season during summer include: blackberries, cherries, strawberries, and melons.  All of these are excellent choices for fruit kabobs
