Kid-Approved Super Bowl Snacks to Try

These snacks will put the "super" in your Super Bowl watch.

With Super Bowl 57 coming up, it’s time to start planning your menu for your little football fans. 

With a bit of creative flair and some store-bought items, these delicious bites will have the pickiest eaters yelling “more please!” These snacks are sure to be a touchdown for parents. 

Walking Tacos

What’s better than filling a tortilla with your favorite fixings? Loading up Doritos or Frito chips. Do you know what’s even more fun than that? Scooping toppings right into the bag—delicious and easy cleanup! You can even make a taco bar with all the fixings, too.

Pull-Apart Pigs in a Blanket

There’s something about hot dogs wrapped in a warm bun that just makes for the perfect snack. Pair the pigs with ketchup, honey mustard or a warm cheese sauce for the perfect combo for dipping.

Veggie Tots

When given the option of fries or tots, tots win every time. (Everyone loves tots, right?) Well, potato tots are fun and all, but you can easily trick your kiddos into eating their veggies by using one of these four tot recipes. Choose from broccoli or cauliflower tots, sweet potato, zucchini or combine them all for a blend.

Go long! Cheese Ball

Who says creative snacks need a lot of time or energy? Mold a store-bought cheese ball into an oblong football shape. Roll it in chopped pecans or your kiddos’ favorite chopped nuts, then add “laces” with bell peppers or your favorite veggies. Don’t forget to serve veggies and crackers on the side!

Football Helmet Fruit Salad

Make sure there’s some produce included in your Super Bowl snack spread by creating a fruit salad bowl out of a watermelon. These tutorials will show you how to carve a watermelon so that it resembles a football helmet. Fill it with all your favorite fruits and sweeten the deal by adding a bowl of whipped cream or fruit dip on the side.
