Fun Snacks for the Winter Games

Does you family enjoy watching the Winter Olympics? Try these Fun Snacks for the Winter Games to help celebrate and enjoy while cheering on your favorite sports!

My two energetic and sports-enthusiastic boys cannot wait for the Winter Games to start! They love everything, especially the hockey matches. We are a hockey family, after all. We’ve been gearing up for the games by watching the trials and talking about what it takes to be an athlete – hard work and a strong body. We already stress how important it is to eat well, especially before a practice or game.

My boys know that fruits, veggies and healthy protein will give their bodies the fuel they need to play their best. If you’re looking for more nutrition tips to fuel your little athlete, check out this post from our registered dietitian, Katie!

Over the next few weeks, I’m going to take advantage of the coverage of these amazing athletes to continue to hit this point home.

We’ll also be snacking on some of these fun, healthy snacks as we cheer on U.S.A!

Fun Snacks to make for the Winter Games

Torch Veggie Cups

Winter Games Flame Veggies

What you need:

  • Bell Peppers
  • Dip or Dressing of choice

These Torch Veggie Cups is one of my favorite snacks to make for the Winter Games as it is so colorful and beautiful. Kids will not be able to refuse diving into these pepper cups! Plus, it couldn’t be easier.

All you need to do is arrange red, orange and yellow peppers in a simple glass dish and serve with your favorite dressing. Don’t forget, if you don’t have time to cut the peppers yourself, you can usually find these strips on the salad bar or precut in the produce department.

Summer Games Fruit Parfait

Winter Games Fruit Rings

What you need:

  • Yogurt
  • Fruit

Fruit is a fantastic option to bring flavor and color to yogurt. I filled little cups with fruits the same color as the rings (blueberries, blackberries, strawberries/raspberries/red grapes, honeydew melon/kiwi and pineapple) and let the boys decorate yogurt with their favorites.
