Here are our Nutritionist Stacy Goldberg’s top 5 favorite ways to use Mitten Bites:
Mitten Bites Yogurt bars: Use your favorite Greek or Icelandic yogurt to create a thick layer on top of any flavored mitten bite. Place in freezer for 20 minutes. We suggest: Blueberry and Lavender Mitten Bites covered with plain greek yogurt and blueberries.
Drizzle your Mitten Bites with dark chocolate for an easy and delicious dessert. Use the Mitten Bites Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter and add dip it in a coating of melted dark chocolate. Place in the fridge for 20 minutes to set.
Yogurt Parfait: Crumble any Mitten Bites granola snack over your favorite yogurt. Add fresh fruit: we love using the Rhubarb and Ginger Mitten Bites and adding fresh strawberries!
Baked Apples with Apple and Cinnamon Mitten Bites: Sprinkle ¼ tsp cinnamon and 1 crumbled mitten bite over a sliced red apple. Place in a microwave safe dish, cover with 1 tsp of water and heat for 2 minutes for an easy delicious fall treat.
Mitten Bite PB+J: Spread your favorite nut butter and jam on top of any Mitten Bite to make an instant, hearty PB and J!
Here are some of her insider tips for how to encourage healthy snacking for your kids:
Engage your kids by filling celery sticks with a low fat cream cheese and topping them with Qwackers Cheddar Crackers, a healthier option than Goldfish. Stacy’s top health tip is to get creative and involve your kids in food preparation.
Kids love muffins and getting involved with baking recipes in the kitchen. Step away from the traditional muffin mixes and experiment with all natural baking mixes such as Jessica’s Gluten Free Muffin Mix next time you make a sweet treat!
