School is back in full swing. Buses are running. Homework is due, and children across the country are returning home after a long day of hard work hungry. Why not take a few extra minutes and prepare a thoughtful, cute snack that will meet their nutritional needs as well as stimulate a bit of after school creativity?
This adorable snack consists of:
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp jelly
1 hot dog bun
And your choice of appropriately colored topping
The banana-dog pictured includes diced fruit snacks as a topping but diced fruit and sliced almonds, granola etc would also work well.
To create this yummy snack, simply spread peanut butter on one side of the opened hot dog bun. Spread jelly on the opposing side of the opened hot dog bun. Place your banana inside the bun just as you would place a hot dog wiener. Cover your banana-dog with the toppings of your choice and enjoy!
This snack offers the nutritional values of fruit, protein and carbohydrates to help refuel a child after a long day at school.
