Fall Healthy Recipes For Kids – Almond Butter Apple Dip & Oatmeal Almond Butter Bowling Balls

One of the biggest struggles as a parent is dealing with feeling guilt. For not doing enough of this or that. For not being a perfect pinterest mom. For not “having it all together”. For losing our tempers. Losing our patience. For not cherishing every moment like we said we would.

These things are a big fat lie, though, and deep down, we all know that. We may fail at times, or have bad days, but we aren’t failures as parents. We are human.

Anyway, one biggie guilt-inducer is food. Life is crazy, and it’s can be very hard to get good food in our kids stomachs when time is limited. It’s easy to feel guilty for that McDonalds lunch, or heavily-processed pre-packaged sugary whatever. Sometimes we just need a quick go-t0 in our recipe arsenal to fall back on. Below, I have two such recipes. Give these great healthy snack recipes for kids a try.

I'm a former sweet-tooth turned health-nut. After a difficult loss of a first pregnancy and having a second child with a heart condition, I became obsessed with health and wellness. I revamped our entire family's lifestyle, dropped seven pant sizes, and created a website where I could share our story and help support people wanting to make small changes day by day in order to live well. I also support my family by the work that I do here through advertising content, affiliates, and partnership/consultant links within content. When you click and/or order, it puts food on our table. Thanks for all your support, and may you live well and thrive!
