While popsicles are an awesome healthy snack, my kids are serious bedtime snackers. We eat an early dinner in our house, everyone is starving by 4:30, so we eat. It works for us, I can do the dishes and hang out a bit before the dreaded bedtime hour is upon us. With an early dinner, the kids get a big snack before bedtime, also known as “a taste test.” This is a plate of snacks to share (sharing works in mom’s favor here–kids shoving vegetables in their mouth for the main reason of out eating the sibling) with an assortment of whatever is in the fridge. A Taste Test can make up for a picky dinner, and prepare for an overnight growth spurt. The recipe below is just ideas, and the photos are a few of our most recent combinations. My 5 year old is starting to dream up his own versions.
