We are always trying to think of ideas for us to have as quick snacks. Our weekly muffins are a great way to have snacks that are ready and easy to grab for us and our son. Recently Tom has been creating a new snack for us. It’s nothing fancy but not something you always think of – a primal version of ants on a log!

 

We prepared ours three ways – one for me, one for Tom and one for our son. Our son is 13 months and can handle eating raisins and sliced almonds but not all children his age can. If you are preparing this for your child please make sure you prepare it in a way that they can eat it and avoid choking.

  1. Using a knife spread as little or as much of the almond butter or honey in the crevice of the celery (for toddler snack we place a dollop on the plate and then sort of stir the celery into it or let him do it for himself).
