When your grandkids are over, one of their favorite things to do is take a soak together in your hot tub! At some point, one of them probably proclaims they are hungry. Whether you serve them before, during or after a nice relaxing soak, here are some fun and tasty snacks that your grandkids will enjoy.
Keep it Simple
If you’re on a time crunch, you don’t need a fancy recipe to break out the healthy and tasty snacks. Put together a fruit tray with an easy Cream Cheese and Marshmallow Fruit Dip, or a Pudding and Yogurt Dip (depending on the kids’ preferences). Crackers and cheese are always a great hit too, especially if you throw in some pepperoni slices. If the kids like to dip raw veggies, then stir a packet of ranch seasoning into a tub of sour cream and serve with carrots, broccoli, snap peas, cucumber and more. Or, pick the kids favorite goodies and toss them all together for a healthy and easy trail mix snack.
Change it Up a Bit
If you’re looking for snacks that they’ll really enjoy but are a little different than the easy options above, then check out these recipes:
- Meatballs — prepare them, stick them on a toothpick, dip them in sauce and serve.
- Chicken Wings — While they can be any flavor you want, this is probably a snack better suited for before or after a dip in the spa, so the littles can wash their messy hands in the sink rather than the spa water.
- Homemade Fruit Roll-ups — A favorite treat for kids, and making them homemade means they aren’t loaded with sugar or other additives you may be avoiding.
- Energy Bars — A healthy option that your grandkids will think are better than store bought granola bars!
Kids seem to constantly be hungry. Grab a spa caddy, prep some awesome snacks, and prepare for a great, relaxing afternoon with your grandkids in your hot tub!
