18 Cheap, Healthy Summer Snacks for Kids

It’s the bane of the existence for moms: what to feed kids in summer that’s actually healthy, simple, AND budget-friendly. This list can make it happen!

Summer time presents a break from routine, and it’s one we look forward to every year.

It also presents some unique challenges. Kids can fall into a mindless-snacking-habit, and that habit can add up to a hefty grocery bill, if we’re not careful.

Store-bought snacks are typically loaded with sugar, dyes and preservatives. Those purchases are few and far between for us, these days.

How to save money and snack smart this summer

Instead of loading up on cookies and snack cakes, I’ve learned to keep a list of simple, healthy recipes with few ingredients -that my kids like.

Sometimes I have time to make the snacks- and sometimes, I delegate them to the kids! They’re the ones eating me out of house and home, so it’s only fitting.

Plus cooking is a great life skill I want them to learn. Many snacks don’t require much more than assembling ingredients, so even small children can build confidence in the kitchen with these ideas.

Take a look at our list of healthy, cheap and homemade summer snacks for some fresh ideas to incorporate into your summer routine.
