1) Peanut Butter and Banana Roll-Ups

All you need for this recipe is a tortilla, peanut butter, and a banana. Simply spread the peanut butter on the tortilla, add sliced bananas in the middle, and roll it up! These roll-ups are perfect for a quick breakfast or snack on-the-go. If you're looking for something a little heartier, try our next recipe...

2) Taco Bites

This recipe is similar to the roll-ups, but with a few added ingredients. You'll need a tortilla, ground beef, shredded cheese, and your favourite taco toppings. First, cook the ground beef and then add it to the tortilla. Top with shredded cheese and your favourite taco toppings. We like to add lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream. Then, just roll it up and enjoy! For a sweet snack, try our third recipe...

3) Fruit Kabobs

This one is super simple and only requires fruit and skewers (which can be quite sharp, for the record, so if you have younger kids you may want to skip this one!). Simply thread your favourite fruits onto skewers and enjoy! We like to use a mix of fruits, such as strawberries, grapes, apples, and bananas. If you're in the mood for something savoury, our fourth recipe is perfect...

4) Cheese Quesadillas

Not only is this recipe a lunchtime classic, but it also makes for a great healthy snack! You'll need tortillas, cheese, and your favourite toppings. We like to add diced tomatoes, onions, and green peppers. First, cook the veggies in a pan until they're soft. Then, add the cheese to the tortillas and top with the cooked veggies. Fold the tortilla in half and cook until the cheese is melted. Serve with salsa or sour cream and enjoy! Our final recipe is a sweet treat that's perfect for an after-school snack...

5) 2-Ingredient Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Yes, they are cookies, but they’re quick, easy, healthy cookies! You'll need about 1 cup of quick oats and 1 overripe banana (depending on size). First, mash the banana in a bowl and then add the oats. Mix until well combined and then drop by spoonfuls onto a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool and enjoy!
