ICYMI: Alara (our youngest daughter) is quite the joiner and anticipates the challenge each year. We encourage her to choose 3 snacks from the recipe booklet for each week that she would like to try, and then we coach her through preparing them at home. Sometimes we take pictures and/or videos of her snacks, and here is one of her snacks prepared for the challenge ;-).

I discovered this awesomely scrumptious (and a little sweet) snack recipe when my daughter was choosing her top "wanna try" snacks from her school's 21 day healthy snack challenge.
