It’s back-to-school time! Time to stock up on healthy foods you can turn into fun afterschool snacks for the kids. Here are back-to-school snacks that boost the immune system and provide afterschool fun!
PB & J—Calculated a New Way
Don’t be deceived by the name—this peanut-free “PB&J” is made with sunflower seed butter.
One slice sourdough bread, lightly toasted
2 Tbs. sunflower seed butter (no sugar or preservatives added)
Organic, real grape fruit leather (no sugar added)
Spread sunflower seed butter evenly over toasted bread. For the calculator, cut seven round slices and one rectangle slice from the banana. Cut letters and numbers from fruit leather using stainless steel cookie cutters. Place shapes on top of banana slices.
Did you know? Traditional sourdough bread is made using fermentation and contains helpful bacteria like Lactobacillus, which helps with digestion and is believed to naturally support the immune system.
