Healthy Christmas Snacks for Kids - Fruit Wreath

We love the idea of nutritious eating by focusing on the colors of the rainbow. So we’re continuing to partner with our friends at HueTrition to inspire you and your family with healthy and colorful christmas snack ideas.

The holiday season is here… and that often means more comfort food and sweet treats than we usually eat. This sugary season can impact what our kids eat and how they feel and behave during the holidays.

But you can make holiday-themed sweet treats with nature’s candy! Colorful fruits and vegetables are the perfect way to nourish your children with the vitamins they need while letting them enjoy a tasty snack.

So we’re partnering again with HueTrition to help your family stay healthy during the holidays and start the New Year with a colorful lifestyle.

We have made four delicious and healthy Christmas snack ideas for you and your kids. And we want to show you how the HuePets app and HuePets bundle can get your kids excited about eating more healthy snacks.
 

HUEPETS BUNDLE

The new HuePets Bundle is a fun way to bring Huey from the HuePets app into real life to become your child’s healthy eating buddy.

Fun Way to Get Kids Excited About Healthy Eating

In the HuePets game, kids scan real-life healthy snacks to “feed” their HuePet which unlocks prizes and makes their pet grow from a little egg to a HueMaster.

By having a real life stuffed toy Huey and the ability to play with Huey online in the digital HuePets world, your child will become even more excited to feed themselves and their HuePet healthy foods.

You can get your HuePets Bundle here on the HueTrition website or get your HuePets Bundle on Amazon.

HEALTHY CHRISTMAS SNACKS FOR KIDS

We’ve come up with some healthy Christmas Snacks for kids made from fruits and vegetables.

STRAWBERRY BANANA “PEPPERMINT” STICKS

It just wouldn’t feel like the holidays without peppermint sticks and candy canes.

Fruit Grinch Santas - Healthy Christmas Snacks

For this simple and healthy snack, slices of fresh fruit mimic those iconic candy stripes. This fun, festive treat is so simple it really doesn’t even need instructions.

Fruit Candy Canes - Healthy Christmas Snacks for Kids

What You’ll Need:

  • bananas
  • strawberries
  • wooden skewers
  • knife
  • cutting board

Directions:

  1. Cut thick slices of strawberries and bananas.
  2. Thread the fruit slices onto wooden skewers in an alternating pattern. For younger children, skip the wooden skewers and lay the fruit onto a plate into a candy cane design.

CUCUMBER MELON CHRISTMAS TREES

Edible trees made with fruits and vegetables are perfect for a healthy Christmas snack idea!

Healthy Christmas Snacks for Kids - cucumber trees with star toppers

What You’ll Need:

  • cucumbers
  • knife
  • wooden skewers
  • cantaloupe or melon
  • star cookie cutter

Directions:

  1. Cut thin slices of cucumber. (Optional: You can peel the cucumbers before slicing. The choice is yours. The unpeeled slices are a little stiffer, but they have a lovely dark green color.)
  2. Scrunch up the slices of cucumber and thread them on wooden skewers. You’ll want to narrow the width as you go to create the illusion of a tree. Thread as many slices onto the wooden skewer as you need.
  3. Cut slices of cantaloupe. Use a star-shaped cookie cutter to cut stars from slices.
  4. Thread the star-shaped fruit onto the wooden skewers to top off your cucumber trees.

APPLE POMEGRANATE WREATH

Apples and pomegranates combine to create a festive fruit tray that’s a cinch to pull together! This is one of those Christmas snack ideas that works for all ages and is fabulous to bring to a holiday party.

Directions:

  1. Simply line the outside of a plate with slices of green apple.

  3. If desired, you can use other pieces of sliced fruit to create a bow. Triangular-shaped pineapple slices put together are just one of many fun options for a bow. Feel free to get creative with other fruits sprinkled in like blueberries or raspberries.

FUN FRUIT SANTAS

Turn fruit into Santas with this fun Christmas snack idea.
