Reinventing Ants on A Log

Food Network was creative and inspiring with a new take on the classic Ants on a Log,  a favorite after school snack. Note that peanut butter and raisins aren't the only ingredients to get kids to eat celery. Even adults will go for these snacks. perhaps you will be motivated to try a new combination yourself.
