Here are several creative, adorable snacks your kiddo will surely enjoy:

PB&J Crackers!

PB & Raspberry Popsicle!

You will need:
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

2 - 4 tablespoons honey, divided
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups raspberry juice or raspberry juice blend

Combine peanut butter, yogurt, milk, 2 tablespoons honey, and vanilla in a food processor or blender until smooth.

Pour peanut-butter mixture into eight 6- to 7-ounce paper cups or pop molds until they're one-third full. Cover and freeze for 1 hour. Cover and chill remaining peanut-butter mixture until needed.

Stir together raspberries and juice, divide among the cups or molds, and insert sticks. Cover and freeze for an hour. Then fill with remaining peanut-butter mixture and freeze for at least 8 hours, or until firm.

Let stand at room temperature for about 5 minutes before unmolding. If you want, spoon honey around the rims and sprinkle on sesame seeds.
