A lot of times I’ll pack my daughter a slice of zucchini bread or banana bread for her afternoon snack at school. I find that is a good snack for her at time of day, it is just a little sweet with a healthy bit of fruit or vegetable. I prefer giving it to her over sugar-laden cookies or crazy fruit roll-ups. It is also fun to do because we very often make the bread together. For example, on a Sunday afternoon we might mine the freezer for frozen bananas and whip up some banana bread, or use up some frozen rhubarb in our favorite rhubarb orange snack bread. Whatever your preference, here are seven snacks breads that are fun to make with kids and are perfect for their lunchbox!
