Rainbow Snacks

These rainbow snacks are fun and healthy snacks that kids can help to make. We love cooking with kids as a therapeutic tool, but there’s more than just learning in the kitchen: these healthy rainbow snacks are a hit with kids AND parents! Add this fun snack to our rainbow activities for themed skill-building!

Rainbow Snacks

I love that these rainbow snack cups offer colorful fruits and veggies that kids are willing to try…because it’s an edible rainbow in a cup!

Kids will love adding this snack idea to a fruit loop craft, too!

Big Sister had snack duty at pre school this week and this is what she took.  She requested veggies and ranch, so we sent in these little veggie/fruit cups and a bottle of ranch for dipping the vegetables.
Gather your ingredients:
  • Red peppers
  • Orange peppers
  • Yellow peppers
  • Green peppers or green celery sticks
  • Blueberries
  • Purple grapes

You could substitute these fruits and vegetables with any colorful fruit!

To make the rainbow cups, follow these simple directions:

  1. Cut the peppers and celery. 
  2. If using grapes, slice the grapes in half.
  3. Position the peppers and celery in the cup so it’s standing up. 
  4. Add a few blueberries and halved grapes.



This was a lunch we had at home one day this week.  They LOVED it…Red pepper, orange pepper, banana slices, cucumbers, blueberries, halved grapes, mini marshmallows, and Kix cereal.
They gobbled it right up!
