Spread homemade or your favorite prepared hummus on a whole wheat tortilla, add a row of grilled veggies or fresh veggie strips or leftover steamed veggies. Roll up and slice into "sushi" sized slices. The hummus keeps the rolls sealed. It's easy to pack, nutritious & the kids get their veggies. Change it up by add-ins to the hummus, different flavored hummus or different flavored tortillas. You can also substitute hummus with "gaucasalsa"-salsa mixed with a mashed avacado(also great for a veggies dip) or try a sweet version with yogurt and fruit.

Our culture is a fast paced one for adults and kids.. So we chop up organic fruits and freeze them. Throw any mixture of them into the blender with some organic apple juice and you have yourself a nutritious and absolutely delicious snack/drink! And of course for fun as a mother I love to sneak a few veggies in there... the husband and kids never know!! ;)

Make a date-apple spread to put on crackers: Use about 3/4 cup dates (pitted) and 2 granny smith apples with the skin on. Put them in the blender till smooth. Afterward, you can stir in some yogurt. Delicious and healthful.

As a school lunch my kids' favorite is a sandwich with avocado, cucumbers and tomatoes, with a drizle of grape seed mayo. As a desert, a piece of my home made carrot cake with walnuts:)

My favorite healthy snack is a yogurt parfait. Vanilla (or any flavored yogurt) with fresh fruit and granola. YUM!

I make a trailmix/granola loaded w/ dried fruits and nuts and seeds and some natural sweetener. Full of fiber and protein for energy all day!

This is probably on the outer edge of healthfulness, but it's too much fun: when I'm making bread (almost 100% whole grain!) I'll roll out a small piece into a circle, heat it on a griddle, sprinkle some chocolate chips or spread some jam or whatever on one half, fold it over and let it bake through. My kids sat there in shocked disbelief the first time I treated them to this. Then they devoured the bread.

Slightly warmed dates with cashew butter are a delightful snack. Or there's always cheese to nibble on.

My favorite snack? It's a toss-up between frozen organic blueberries or peanut butter on whole wheat grain product (bread, bagel, other) topped with cinnamon, banana slices, and more cinnamon. Lots of cinnamon, yum!

I'm a big cheese and cracker fiend, not the Easy Cheese and Ritz cracker kind though. I like a good sharp cheddar slice with multi grain seasoned crackers of a wide variety.

I make parfaits by mixing cooked bulghar with honey and spoon the mixure into an individual clear dish and alternate spoonfuls of the honeyed bulghar with blueberries and/or strawberries, then 2% greek yogurt, then bulghar, fruit, and yogurt again. There's fiber in the bulghar, calcium in the yogurt, and antioxidants in the blueberries. Very healthy and satisfying as a snack or dessert.
