User post: Use Ice Cream Cones To Spruce Up Healthy Snacks

Sometimes, it really is all in the presentation. Ice cream cones are my new strategy. My daughter declared war against blueberries and a few other healthy snacks. I put these same snacks in an ice cream cone, and our problem is solved.

Organic ice cream cones do exist, if that's a concern for you. The ones above are about 20 calories each and happen to be vegan too.

The benefits of using ice cream cones:

  • No dishes to clean!
  • Cone snacks make a cute display at parties and playdates.
  • They're great for portion control.
  • Kids have fun making them.
  • They're inexpensive.
The only downside is kids can drop a few crumbs here and there after they bite into the cone. I'll happily take that, if it means my daughter is eating healthy food without protest. This cone below is her current favorite. It's packed with antioxidants and a mix she created herself. It's so delicious, I'm impressed every time we make it.
