Healthy (& Kid Friendly) Lunch Snack = Ants on a Log


Monday, on twitter, there was talk regarding the classic kid snack “ants on a log”.  Although I am not a kid anymore, I still pack this classic snack for lunch on a regular basis because it is healthy (in moderation). Another bonus is that the peanut butter (or almond butter) is one of those foods that sticks with you for awhile {so I’m not hungry 20 minutes later}.


  • 5 Stalks of Celery (washed and dried)
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter (I enjoy crunchy!)
  • 1/4 cup raisins (if you do not like black ants {raisins} try red ants {dried cranberries} )


Cut your celery stalks in half, generously spread on peanut butter, and sprinkle the tops with ants (raisins, dried cranberries {you can even try dicing up apricot or adding banana chips – the possibilities are endless!} ).


Are you {or your kiddos} allergic to peanuts? USE FAT FREE CREAM CHEESE!

Happy Snacking!
