5 Kid-Friendly Summer Snacks

Surfside Beach is an incredibly affordable place for your family vacation, but we know that the cost of food is one that can add up quickly when you’re staying for a week. If you’re renting a vacation house with Surfside Realty, kitchens are a huge perk. Here are a few snacks that are healthier than a bag of chips and easy to whip up that will keep the kids happy: 

Celery, peanut butter and raisins

You might recall, but this snack was called “ants on a log” when you were a kid. But it packs a protein punch with the peanut butter and is delicious. Not to mention, it’s easy to execute in the morning before everyone gets going.

Guacamole

Your children may not love avocados, but most kids love the tangy taste of guacamole. All you need is a few limes, tomatoes, avocados, red onion and cilantro and presto! You’ve got a healthy dip that everyone will love! 

Sausage cheese muffins

These are easily transportable to the beach and will keep them full between meals. Grab the easy recipe here.

Pinwheels

These easy tortilla roll-ups look impressive, but they’re easily. Cream cheese, salsa and cheese are delicious together and will also work as a vegetarian option.

Ham & cheese sliders

Sliders are perfect for little kids’ hands. Add a little mustard or dijon, your ham and cheeses of choice and voila! Insta-snack!
