Put some sparkle into snacktime with these Fruity Gelatin Snacks!

Kids Can Have Fun Making Fruity Snacks!

Rubbermaid has these wonderful TakeAlongs Twist&Seal Containers that I use in the kid’s lunch boxes during the school year. They are small enough to fit inside of the lunch boxes perfectly. They have a  leak-proof seal which make them great for storing liquids and snacks. Plus, if you need to microwave the contents, the handles stay cool when food is hot. When the kids are not in school, healthy snacks during the summer are just as important for a busy mom to think about. Why spend extra money on those pudding or fruit snacks at the grocery store when you can make your own at home!

It’s real easy to do and the kids can help too! Empyty your favorite gelatin into a bowl, follow package instructions (with some adult supervision for the young ones of course), toss in some of their favorite fruit and pour gelatin mixture in. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm. The kids now have an easy snack they can pull right out of the fridge. When their done, wash containers and make more when needed.

Recipe Note: Fill the containers with Fruit Cocktail, Applesauce, Fresh Fruit, Vegetables, Jello or as a special treat Pudding.

These containers are very easy and economical when it comes to saving money on your grocery bill. Snacks for kids don’t have to expensive, but they should be healthy.

    Hi, I've noticed that you don't have comments for your postings. I've tried typing several comments over the weeks, and can't find any of them. Is it a policy that few, if any, comments get through? Thanks!

    Hi Jessica,

    Your last two comments I saw were reviewed and approved. And then todays. Were there more? I was spending time with the family over the weekend and just now getting back to posting and reviewing comments. I have a new system that notifies me of comments pending to be approved to weed out the spam comments I was getting. If I've missed any of yours other than the 3 I saw, I apologize. There are no more from you that I can see. Hope that answers your question. Have a great day!
