Summer Holiday Snack Ideas

The battle cry in our house throughout the summer holidays is “Mum! I’m a little bit hungry!” My kids always have the ability to know when they’re hungry but no skill in identifying what they want to eat. To save myself some time and repetition I make a list of all the available snacks that they can choose from then stick it on the fridge so that the kids can try and choose something before they scream up the stairs that they’re hungry. In case you need some ideas here are my summer holidays snack suggestion for my two.
