Just wondering how you keep your children fed in the summer. Mine are constantly hungry. I swear my cupboard and fridge doors should be revolving,lol. I try to keep loads of fresh fruit and mr.freezies,ect. But what is your quick and easy snack ideas to beat the heat

My kids are little and seem to like the same kinds of snacks year round:
Graham crackers and goldfish are a favorite, but I parcel those out because they get expensive.
Hummus and bread
Toast with honey
Apple slices with honey or peanut butter
Fresh or dried fruit
And occasionally ice cream or popsicles
I find that having plenty of cold water available that they can get themselves is the key to managing the heat for my kids.
Fruit.....all the time : We also eat out of our gardens a lot, salads, green beans, peas, cucumbers, and now the melons are starting. Just pair some fruit, garden veggies, and crackers and it's good enough for lunch!
Plus we make a lot of cookies around here. Right now, it's monster cookies because I'm nursing so it's a good excuse!
