3 Fun, Waste-Free Snack Ideas For Kids

July 19, 2023

School holidays meant aallll the snacks! Please tell me I’m not the only one! Even though we try to recycle soft plastics, I’m still shocked at the amount of rubbish kids’ snacks create! It’s Plastic-free July and we’re doing our part to spare our planet that bit of extra landfill here’s a few snack ideas that are waste-free but still kid approved. Enjoy!


Puff Pastry Cheesy Shapes



This an easy snack but also a fun activity! My three year old had the best time doing this!

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius. 
  2. Lay out puff pastry sheets. Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes.
  3. Whisk one egg with 1 tbs of milk.
  4. Paint egg wash on shapes.
  5. Sprinkle with cheese.
  6. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until golden!


Apple Peanut Butter “Donuts”



My kids love these sweet, healthy, and protein filled apple slices! Simply slice an apple into rounds and remove the core. Top with peanut butter and sultanas. Drizzle with honey!


Blueberry Pop It 



This playful and simple snack is a made by using a pop it fidget toy! Kids love helping make (and eating) this!

1.Wash your pop-it. Mix plain greek yogurt and honey together to desired sweetness.

2. Put one blueberry in each popper.

3. Add yogurt to each row. Make sure there is no yogurt on the dividers or else you won’t get the strips.

4. Add extra toppings (sprinkles, chocolate chips, chopped nuts, etc), if desired.

5. Freeze for at least 1 hour then gently pop the yogurt strips out. Enjoy!

Luvme Eco is truly a close-knit, family-owned business and today, it’s our birthday! Woo hoo! Luvme began nearly 14 years ago when Kendall and her mum, Laurie, were confronted with the fact that every year 1.5 billion disposable nappies end up in landfill in Australia every year! They knew they had to find a solution that was kinder to the Earth, for future generations. The first eco nappy was born not long after and the rest is history!
