Recently, Nutritionist and Cheer Up Buttercups Co-founder, Allison Reyna, was asked by Time Warner Cable to do a short segment on healthy snacks that kids will love. Having tested these recipes on her three children, we can honestly say that these are snacks your kids really will love!
Whether they need a power snack in the morning, or an after-school snack to curb their appetite until dinner, your kids will approve of these choices.
8 apples of your choice, depending on how sweet you want the applesauce.
1/2 a lemon
1.5-2 cups water
Peel and cut apples into chunks, and add them to the crockpot.
Squeeze half a lemon over the top of the apples and add the water.
Sprinkle the cinnamon over the top and stir the apples.
Cook the apples on high for about 4 hours or until the apples are soft.
Once cooked, use a blender or hand blender until the apples form a sauce. You may need to add a little bit of water if it is too thick.
