Peanut butter is a great food energy supply for kids, and then you can give them these snacks and still feel pretty good about what they are eating. Well, a few, anyway; there is still plenty of sugar in this great treat. But peanut butter slows the absorption of that sugar and helps avoid that sugar rush, or high, or spike, that so often accompanies a large ingestion of the sweet stuff. And that also means no sugar low, later, when the sugar has cleared your system. And who needs all the rise and fall in our blood stream? Or our kids? So get good peanut butter. It adds loads of protein, lots of good fats, plenty of vitamin E (an important anti-oxidant for good health) as well as resveratrol, another key anti-oxidant. Then you will feel better about the kids eating this sweet snack.
These are quick to make, and the kids can help. They will love dipping the prepare peanut mixture in to the various dips that you can make from sweet, bitter sweet, butter scotch or other flavors of chips. See what the recipe recommends on the web site, or think of your own combination. There are plenty of different flavors of chips that go well with peanut butter.
