Camping kids will spend most of their day running and playing. You may find it a challenge to capture them long enough to sit down for a meal. The challenge can sometimes be making sure they continue to eat foods that will fuel their bodies for the energy they’re burning. Finger foods can work well for everyone.
Sandwiches such as grilled cheese, grilled ham and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, and tuna salad can be made in the morning and cut into strips. The kids can then easily swing by and grab a few pieces on their way to or from their next activity.
Fresh fruit and veggies can be cut and kept cool for a satisfying snack when the kids are hungry. Snacks like this will also assist you in keeping the kids hydrated. They will be burning lots of energy and will need a steady source of food to keep them going.
There are lots of easy recipe ideas using pre-made biscuit or croissant dough. Cut a few hot dogs in quarters and wrap them in croissant dough. Then bake them for easy pigs in a blanket. Pre-made biscuits can be pulled in half and layered with ham and cheese. Bake them off and you have kid-sized sandwiches that are handy for the kids when they’re hungry.
These are a few ideas to keep the kids fed when camping. They will be happy to have their favorite foods and you can relax knowing they are eating well and having fun.
