This easy Pineapple Salsa is the perfect combination of sweet and savory! Full of wholesome ingredients, it’s a great snack or topping for tacos, chips & much more.
Are yours kids sweet snackers or savory snackers? Do they reach for fruit and cookies, or nuts and chips? One thing that my kids definitely inherited from me is their sweet tooth – they can never turn down a piece of chocolate! But they also love their salty crackers with edamame hummus.
This easy pineapple salsa is the best of both worlds! Sweet, juicy pineapple mixed with savory vegetables and a hint of spice from chili powder – it’s a snack you’ll never get tired of eating. It’s great with chips as an afternoon snack, packed in a lunch box or as a topping for grilled chicken or tacos!
If you deal with food allergies in your house like we do, don’t worry – this pineapple salsa is gluten-free, grain-free, paleo, vegetarian, vegan, nut-free, and still SO delicious! Let us know if you try it. Enjoy!
Swap the bread for vegetables in this Sweet Potato Toast Lunchbox Sandwich! Topped with banana & peanut butter, it’s a healthy, gluten-free lunch for kids.
Have you heard of sweet potato toast yet?? It took the Internet by storm a couple months ago after Kelsey of Little Bits Of posted about this genius idea. For those who are gluten- or grain-free, this is such an amazing replacement for bread in lunchbox sandwiches! Even if you eat bread, it can be a great way to get your kids to eat more healthy sweet potatoes.
So how exactly do you make sweet potato toast? Simply cut your potato into 1/4-inch slices and pop them in the toaster a couple times. It’s that easy! Then you can get creative with your toppings – we went with banana & peanut butter, but you can also do egg salad or avocado or even chocolate spread for a sweet treat!

Pack a few Mini Quinoa Pizza Bites in your kid’s lunch box for a healthy, gluten-free meal they will love! Full of pizza flavor & easy to prepare.
My kids LOVE bite-sized foods. I mean, who doesn’t? We enjoy everything from bite-size no bake chocolate bites to one of our favorite recipes, spinach and bacon mini quiches. For some reason, it’s so much easier to get my kids to try new foods when they’re in small bites. Everything is better when it’s mini!
Another great thing about bite-sized foods is that they’re super easy to pack in a lunchbox. These Mini Quinoa Pizza Bites are yet another fun-sized food that my kids can’t get enough of! My kids love pizza, so I took all the familiar flavors and used them to introduce another healthy food into my kids’ diet: quinoa! It’s a gluten-free food that’s packed with protein and nutrients. Score!
You can customize these with your family’s favorite pizza toppings – we used olives, spinach and peppers. These are great for meal prepping at the beginning of the week to have lunch ready to go! Of course, don’t forget to pack the pizza sauce for dipping. That’s the best part!
