15 TikTok Food Hacks that’ll Win Over Snacktime – Motherly

From food storage hacks to easy family recipes, TikTok has been a huge boon for kitchen success. It’s also become a supportive community for parents—both moms and dads—to share their favorite food hacks for kid’s snacks, whether it be healthy recipes or how they sneak vitamins into their kid’s food (P.S. this one is our favorite!). And truth be told, while these snack food hacks may be geared towards kids, we think cinnamon apple slices and frozen banana popsicles sound pretty yummy, too.

If you’re looking for new, creative ways to change up your kid’s typical lunchtime routine or food hacks, you’ve come to the right place. Ahead, check out our favorite TikTok hacks that’ll cut down on sugar, time in the kitchen, dishes and messes! Not to mention, many of the snacks can be made with the help of your kids.

We know, it all sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t—take a look for yourself below.

Banana “Nice” Cream



A sweet treat! #banananicecream #toddlerapproved #toddlersnacks #healthytoddler #toddlerfoodideas #easyrecipe #healthyrecipe #toddlerfood #fyp

Banana nice cream is an easy, healthy way to trick your kiddos into eating their fruit as dessert, and it tastes pretty bomb, too! The base recipe only requires two ingredients; but, you can add peanut butter, cacao powder, or fresh berries to jazz it up.

Apple Monsters



Trying something healthy before the massive amounts of candy #halloween #toddlersnacks #halloweensnacks #applemonsters #halloweendiy #kidsactivities

Crafts and snacks? Sounds like a win-win to us. To get you started you’ll need apples, strawberries, peanut butter, sunflower seeds (or other seeds of your choosing), and candy eyeballs. From there, your child can put it all together to create spooky apple monsters.

Yogurt Melts



Next, I’m going to make spinach-banana yogurt melts! #BLW #toddlersnacks #momsoftiktok #fyp

Yogurt and fresh fruit, that’s all you need! Feel free to also add chia seeds or hemp seeds, and while we’re at it, we bet a mashup of different fruits would taste good, too (mango-pineapple yogurt melts, anyone?).

Bread End Slice Hack



I’m not throwing the end peice away. Anyone elses kid like this? #toddlerhacks #momlife #fyp #dontbesuspicious

Fighting over who gets stuck with the end piece is no longer a predicament thanks to this mom’s hack. Simply, flip the bread so its “end side” is facing upwards. Add cheese, peanut butter, meat, Nutella, or whatever you want, then put that side facing down, on top of the other slice of bread. No one will ever know it was an end piece!

Do you do this?? #momlifevibes #fyp #toddler #toddlerhacks #momhacksforyou

Put away the knife. To split a banana for your toddler, all you’ll need to do is apply pressure to the banana and it’ll naturally separate into three pieces or “logs.”
