Fun Peanut Butter Snacks For Denver Kids

Healthy, growing children need to snack between meals for proper nutrition. Most Colorado Springs parents have probably had the experience of forgetting an afternoon snack. What happens? Kids finally notice they’re hungry about an hour before dinner, and boy is it hard to wait!

A great snack ingredient is peanut butter. It is an inexpensive source of protein and calories and gives Colorado Springs children the nutrients they need to grow and to stay healthy.

Here are some great healthy snack ideas using peanut butter for Woodland Park and Monument kids.

Peanut Butter Banana Pops

Bananas, cut in half width-wise
Popsicle sticks
Peanut butter
Chopped nuts, sprinkles, or other topping

Take the popsicle sticks and push them carefully into the cut bananas. Spread peanut butter over the bananas and roll in nuts or other topping. Freeze. Enjoy.

Peanut Butter Balls

This is the kind of recipe you can’t really mess up, and the portions are approximate.

about 1 cup of peanut butter
a few tablespoons of honey (2-3)
a few tablespoons of instant dry milk

Mix everything together until it forms a large ball. Pinch off small pieces of dough, and roll into ball shapes. Store in the refrigerator, and pull them out at snack time.

Individual vs. Team Sports For Denver Kids

Individual vs. Team Sports For Denver Kids

There are growing numbers of kids in the Colorado Springs area involved in team sports. Participating in these activities can be a very positive experience for Denver kids. They can enhance health and fitness, social maturity, and even cognitive development.

What if your child doesn’t want to participate in organized team sports in your Colorado community? Perhaps they have yet to develop the skills necessary or find team sports too competitive or intimidating.

Fortunately, Colorado Springs children who participate in individual sports or even simple playful activities can receive the same benefits. With a team, the child has a coach to guide and encourage them in the chosen sport. Absent the team and coach, the guidance can come from the active role parents play in their child’s chosen sport.

Colorado parents who playfully nurture their child by playing catch, shooting baskets, or tossing pitches, encourage skill and personal development without the possible downsides of competition.

Many parents in Denver are organizing non-competitive sports groups. These allow kids to experience sports, meet new friends, and enjoy the improved health and fitness that comes from being active.

My name is Elsa Shields and I am a local XoBiotic Squares representative. I advocate for children’s health and would love to talk to you today. Call me to learn more about kids health and Xocai Nuggets.
