Easy Way To Make Ants On A Log Snacks For School Lunchboxes

We are happy to partner with Dandy on this post, all opinions are our own. 

Ants On A Log is such an easy way to get our girls to eat healthy lunches that are also fun. It’s nice to be able to give your kids something to smile about at lunch time. It’s just being able to share with them in another way how much you love them and I do that with their lunches. So when I pack my girls lunches I want them to find things that will brighten their day. Ants on a Log Day is September 13th and to celebrate we’re packing a special kind of lunch.

Dandy Celery Snack Packs Great For School Snacks

We were able to find ready to eat, already washed snack packs of celery from Dandy at our local grocery store. Dandy Celery also has a peanut butter + celery snack pack that has everything you need to make easy ants on a log on the go. Dandy Celery Snack Packs Ant On Log snack kit

What’s great is that we can easily grab and go with these Dandy Celery packs. They’re a deliciously fun snack that even our kids enjoy. So when it comes time for school I like to be prepared with things they can easily just grab. I like that they’re already washed and ready to eat.

When it comes time for lunch they can put together their own ants on a log with the peanut butter and a few raisins. I leave space so my kiddo can make them in her lunchbox with extra raisins to enjoy on the side. It’s so simple to create lunches that your kids will enjoy and that will help brighten their day. Plus it’s a fun and easy way to celebrate national Ants on a Log Day.

    I wish my son would like peanut butter. I would love for him to eat that because it is a better snack then what he finds half the time.
