Healthy Sweet Treats for Kids

Forget cupcakes. Your wee ones will love these more nutritious (and delish!) dessert ideas.

Sometimes I think my kid is addicted to Goldfish. And Cheerios. And now that the weather has warmed up, ice cream. So I went on the hunt for some healthier treat ideas.

This roasted cinnamon honey chickpeas recipe from Weelicious only uses four ingredients: chickpeas, canola oil, honey and cinnamon. After whisking together the ingredients and greasing the pan, you roast them for 40 minutes on 400 degrees. The food blogger claims her kids love them, and I believer her. Harper would love to pop these tasty little beans into his mouth.

On a warm day, I’m loving the idea of spending nap time whipping up these Watermelon Lime Sorbet Slices from lovely food blogger Food For My Family. You scoop out the watermelon, mix in simple syrup and lime, puree the ingredients, and then stuff it back into the watermelon rind. After it sits in the freezer for a few hours, it will be ready for your kids to enjoy.

Have you ever tasted the frothy Mexican sweet drink horchata? Well, Foodie Tots posted this super yum recipe for kids called: Strawberry Horchata. Since the strawberries will be arriving at Farmer’s Markets any week now, it seems fitting to pass this one along. Surprise! You’ll be using white rice to make it — Yes, actual white rice. Check it out.
