My kids eat. I mean my kids eat a lot. I swear more days than not they will eat almost every hour. When they come home from school, the first place they go is to the kitchen looking for something to eat. The problem is, like most kids, they want junk food. It isn’t that I care that they have a junky snack in the afternoon, everyone loves a treat, the problem is, it doesn’t fill them and so after they have their junk, they are asking for more food. I wanted to find something that makes a healthy snack, that they think is like junk, and actually pushes the hunger away for a little while. Then I found glitter grapes.
The kids made them at school one day and when they came home raving about them, we started making them at home. It these kid approved snacks could not be easier to make. What makes them great is that because the kids can help make them, they are thrilled to eat them. All you need is cleaned grapes and jello.
After the grapes are cleaned, but still a little wet, roll them around in Jello. You can pair any flavors together that you want. I let Willow pick out which flavor she wanted, but personally, I have never noticed much flavor in jello that matched what it said it was, if that makes sense.
After rolling the grapes in the jello, set them aside in a bowl. Leave them in the refrigerator for about 2 hours. Once they are set, they are great to grab and pop a few in your mouth. The kids love them and they are a fun kid approved snack.
