Here's a way to trick your child into eating their fruits! Cover apple slices with some gooey chocolate and sprinkle some edible confetti all over. You can even switch it up with peanut butter or caramel sauce - whatever they like best with when snacking on an apple.

These effortlessly fancy ice-cream sandwiches are handy to serve to your group of friends -- especially if they are picky with the ice cream flavour that goes on their cookies! Simply cut a slice of your favourite ice cream pint (make sure the name of the flavour is intact) with a sharp and warm knife. Place the ice cream slice in between two cookies. Pile the sandwiches up on a plate and you're ready to serve!

#3 Reusable snack shaker

Tired of snacks spilling everywhere? Re-purpose a mason jar and the top of any empty juice carton to make the perfect DIY, child-friendly snack shaker. Cut the top of the carton to fit your mason jar lid. Get rid of any material that covers the lid and replace it with the piece of carton and you're good to go.

#4 Butterfly pack
