Healthy Snacks for Kids on the Go
Not only is it OK to eat between meals, snacking can actually be good for your child.
Frozen Pudding Lollipops
Make these at least four hours before you plan to serve them so they have
time to freeze. You can even assemble them a day or two ahead and store them,
well wrapped, in the freezer.
1 package fat-free, sugar-free chocolate instant pudding
2 1/2 cups skim milk
2 tablespoons light chocolate syrup
1/2 cup colored sprinkles or small candies
10 wooden Popsicle sticks
10 small paper cups
- In a large bowl, blend pudding packet, milk, and chocolate syrup until
thickened and thoroughly mixed.
- Place 10 paper cups on a baking sheet and spoon 1 teaspoon of sprinkles or
candies into the bottom of each. Pour pudding mixture evenly into each cup.
Cover with aluminum foil.
- Make a small hole in foil and insert a wooden stick into each
- Place baking sheet in freezer for at least 4 hours (or until pudding pops
are frozen). Remove foil and tear away paper cups to serve.
