Tried & True: Ants on a Log


It’s simple and yummy … a child snack classic.  Ants on a Log.  This what Henry and I prepared for his lunch before his first day of (afternoon) kindergarten. (Honor wanted nothing to do with it … still being very much in her “[PB]jelly “sammich” phase).  Regardless it’s a totally fun to reinforce letter recognition AND a relatively healthy eating!

An, we had a *little* extra fun, spelling his name out!

    Hello! Popping in from Mom Loop Follow! Ants on a log are a great snack, my kids still love them from time to time. Anytime kids can interact with their food, they’ll be happier to actually eat it!!

  2. This is so cute! I wish I could get JDaniel to eat peanut butter. He wants nothing to do with it.

  3. This is adorable. And I have to say, I love your kids’ names!

    Glad to have found your blog today from the Mom Loop. :)

  4. I LOVE the idea of name spelling with ants on a log! I just pinned your post to my Kids’ Food Fun board on Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/debchitwood/kids-food-fun/. I’m your newest follower!

  5. Thanks, Deb! Lots more fun to come!

  6. Thanks, Erin! Honestly! ;0)

  7. JDaniel’s mom … Does he like cream cheese? Or spreadable cheese (like cheese-whiz)? Those work great for Ants on a Log too!
