Camping with little ones can be so much fun. It’s great to watch them explore the outdoors while they laugh and play in the sunshine. They will get hungry faster as they burn energy romping about so having snacks on hand that they enjoy and that you approve of will be an advantage.
There is no need to go crazy and find difficult recipes for this task. In fact, for our first snack, you just need three ingredients. More than likely you already have celery, raisins, and peanut butter in the kitchen, right? Well, we are going to create that old standby, Ants On A Log. Considering we are in the woods on a camping trip, it is the perfect snack!
Of course, you can not go on a camping trip without having some delicious trail mix on hand. However, we want to make it ourselves so we know what is going in and keep it healthy. By all means, you can go as wild with this one as you like. However, it is easiest to keep it simple and add in cereal, oats, nuts, even a little bit of chocolate.
We all know that kids love any type of food that is stuffed. Why not core an apple and stuff it with peanut butter? Kids will love the surprise of peanut butter. And once again you can even add a little chocolate to sweeten the deal for them.
These three simple treats will take your camping from blah to TASTY! We hope you and your young family have the time of your lives while you are camping with us and we look forward to meeting you.
