Healthy Snail Snack- Perfect for Preschoolers!

Getting kids to eat healthy is not always easy. That is why as parents we need to get creative and make eating healthy fun. Spring brings snails and although I don’t like the real ones, these Healthy Snail Snacks are cute and great for a mid-afternoon snack.

This snail snack is one of my son’s favorites. Last year when we started our garden it was filled with snails. My son knew snails were bad for our garden and instead of “putting them to sleep” like we told him, he decided to collect them and take care of them in a box. While we would never have him eat real snails (yes, I know there is escargot, ew!) this snack reminds him of his slimy little friends. The best part is, he is eating healthy without even knowing it!

I sure hope you and your kiddos enjoy this snack as much as my family does! Check out the recipe below!

Ingredients Needed to Make A Healthy Snail Snack:

  4. Cut up the twizzlers or grab the raisins to place on one end of the celery stock. These serve as your antennas.
  5. Place the apple slice into the celery stock and into the peanut butter. This part serves as the body of the snail.
  6. Add the finishing touch by placing the antennas into the peanut butter. Then you have your fun and healthy snail snack!snail snack2
