Everything is Special in an Ice Cream Cone

Here's a Healthy and Fun Toddler Snack!
When my kids want a special treat, but I don't want to break out cookies or sugary snacks, I have a secret Mommy trick...
Everything Is Special when it is served in an Ice Cream Cone!
Cereal, raisins and grapes are my kids favorites, but any small healthy treat will work.  You could try Granola, carrot matchsticks, cut up apples, those little baby food snack stars...anything small enough to fit inside the cone (that doesn't pose a choking risk to your child, of course!).
The best part is these mini cones have 0 grams of sugar...yes, ZERO!
This batch of samples barely made it through the photo shoot!
Notice the cones with the grapes were the first to disappear.
They were gobbled up in no time.
Happy 3 year old
+ Healthy snack
= Happy Mom!


  1. I love this idea. They even sell gluten free cones for those who are have a gluten intolerance.

  2. This is genius! I recently made icecream cone cupcakes (featured on my blog) and had some cones left over, and now my son always wants to eat ice cream cones so this is perfect :)

  3. This is such a creative idea! I love how something so simple transforms this into a fun and special snack!

  4. What a cute idea! Just saw your link over at Sassy Little Lady's link party and thought I'd come over and check it out.

    I'd love for you to link up at my weekend link party @The Weekend re-Treat

    Hope to see you there!

  5. Oh what a lovely idea! Your son is the star in this post :)
    Thank you for sharing this at Wednesday Extravaganza - see you there again this week with more deliciousness ;)

  6. Adorable! I know even my bigger kids would love!

  7. So cute! It's all in the packaging, isn't it? I love the plate, too.

    I would love for you to share your post at my Motivation Monday linky. It's perfect!

  8. What a great idea! I am definitely going to get some ice cream cones next time I go to the store!
