It’s back to school time and that means you may be constantly rushing around to keep up with your kids. After school hours can be hectic. Most kids come home screaming that their starving so you’ll want to have something quick and easy for them to snack on. Although they’ll want something quickly, it’s important to make sure that you’re not just feeding them junk foods. Sugar is definitely not what you want to give them late in the afternoon.

Luckily you don’t have to resort to packaged snacks that are loaded with sugar and filled with artificial preservatives, colors, and flavors. To please your kid’s sweet tooth, give them Nocciolata’s Organic Hazelnut Spread with Cocoa and Milk. If your child can’t have dairy products, Nocciolata offers a Dairy Free Organic Hazelnut and Cocoa Spread. You can find these delicious chocolate spreads in places like Whole Foods Market, Sprouts Farmer’s Market, Meijer, and even online at Walmart and Amazon.

“This year, the sofi Awards named Rigoni di Asiago’s Nocciolata Dairy Free the Best New Product in the Nut Butter Category. (And Kelly Clarkson described it as her family’s “new favorite thing on the planet.”)

Made with organic ingredients completely free of GMO’s, preservatives, colors, additives, or artificial sweeteners, Nocciolata Dairy Free combines hazelnuts, fair trade cocoa and cocoa butter, natural vanilla extract, and raw cane sugar. This spread contains far less sugar than other brands and is free from hydrogenated fats. Nocciolata Dairy Free contains no milk and is certified vegan. It is made with cold-pressed sunflower oil, which is both better for health and environmentally-responsible. 

It is delicious spread on bread, in baked goods, on fruit, granola, frozen desserts, and – of course – right out of the jar.”

 

 

 

 

These 3 tasty after school snacks are not only easy to prepare, they’re delicious and kid approved!

 

 

For a thirst-quenching snack, enjoy these delicious fruit kabobs. They’re also a great way to get your kids involved in the kitchen!

Turn fruit into a healthy summer treat. You can’t go wrong with fruit covered in a delicious chocolate spread. Your kids will even want to help make them! You can get creative with different fruits and even cut them into different shapes. Drizzle as much (or as little) chocolate spread on top to satisfy that sweet tooth. Top with a few nuts to add a little crunch.

Fruit Kabobs Drizzled with Nocciolata
Instructions
  1. Use whatever fruits you like. Be sure to wash them first!
  2. Peel away any skins or hulls and begin to slice the fruits or cut them into whatever shape you like.
  3. Thread the fruits onto the skewers or cocktail sticks.
  4. Prepare the Nocciolata Spread by placing a few tablespoons in a microwavable cup or bowl with a tablespoon of milk. Stir together and microwave for a few seconds. Just enough to give it a spreadable texture.
  5. Spoon the spread onto the fruit kabobs and enjoy!
Recipe Notes
  • Apples, pears, and bananas will turn brown once chopped, but adding lemon juice helps prevent this from happening.
