Are you always tossing the same back to school snack ideas in your child’s lunch box? I am guilty of that sometimes. As soon as I find a school snack that my daughter loves, I keep adding it to her lunchbox.. not good? I feel less guilty when the snack is a homemade one and a healthy one like this banana bread recipe: easy to make, healthy and most of all: kid approved. If school snack ideas are not kid approved, they are useless, even if they are the healthiest snacks ever.

What I love about this back to school snack for kids: easy to make. You can freeze it in individual portions and toss in the lunch box the night before. Of course the taste is way better when it is savored fresh with a cup of milk. As an alternative, you can pour the mix in muffin tins and it will be a banana muffin recipe. You can involve the kids in the baking or the decoration of this healthy snack. My daughter loves decorating what I bake. She is more eager to eat it when she does so.
