Kidzworld Kitchen: Spring Break Munchables

Mar 21, 2012

Spring break is almost here and everyone is busy finalizing their plans! Maybe you’re headed out on an exciting road trip or just planning to spend a fun week hanging out with friends?

Whatever your plans are it will be handy to have some delicious snacks when the munchies hit.  Yummy chocolate peanut buttery banana trail mix and pizza muffins make great travel snacks and fruit kabobs will be perfect to have while playing video games or having friends over.  Have a super fun holiday!!

Monkey Trail Mix


  • 1 cup of banana chips
  • ¾ cup peanuts
  • ¾ cup cashews
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips (or chocolate covered peanuts)
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter chips


  1. Combine all the ingredients into a bowl and mix
  2. Separate into small plastic bags
  3. Enjoy!

Pizza Muffins


  • 1 + ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 + ¼ cup milk
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup grated cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup sliced black olives
  • ¼ cup fresh or sundried tomatoes
  • ¼ cup sliced pepperoni or sausage (optional)
  • 2 tbsp finely fresh chopped basil (or 1 tbsp dried basil)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Using a paper towel, rub vegetable oil all over the inside of your 6-hole muffin tin to keep your muffins from sticking (Hint! If you only have a 12-hole muffin tin add a small amount of water to the unused cups so you don’t damage your pan)
  3. In a large bowl mix the flour, egg, milk, oil, cheeses, tomatoes, pepperoni and herbs. (Hint! Save a bit of the cheese to sprinkle on the top)
  4. Divide the mixture evenly into muffin pan and top with remaining cheese
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown
  6. Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!

Fruit Kabobs and Yogurt Dip


  • An assortment of fresh, washed fruits, such as bananas, strawberries, melon, grapes, mango and pineapple
  • Wooden skewer sticks
  • 2 cups vanilla yogurt
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Chop all your fruits into bite-size pieces
  2. Push fruits onto the skewers
  3. In a small bowl combine the yogurt, honey and cinnamon and stir well
  4. Dip the kabobs into the yogurt dip and enjoy a healthy snack


Remember, be creative, have fun and above all, safety first! Always talk to the adult in charge before you get your chef on! Happy cooking!

Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?
