Summer Snack Attack

5 quick and easy recipes that kids – and parents – will love

Riding a bike. Skateboarding. Running. Swimming. Baseball, softball – just having a ball. Kids find all sorts of ways to burn extra energy in the summertime. Sure, they burn energy year-round. Lots of it. But in the summertime, when they can run and play outside, they are energy-guzzling, turbo-charged machines that go, go, go!

Which means they need more fuel in the summer months to keep them going. 

“Mom, dad, we need snacks. What do we have to eat?”

Sound familiar? It does to us – we’re parents, too. And we know all about the summer snack attacks. Which is why we put together some of our favorite homemade recipes to help get you through the summer. They’re easy to make, kids love them, and they all include our favorite natural ingredient: Sue Bee® honey.
