Grape Salsa & Cinnamon Sugar Chips make for a delicious snack or dessert and fit perfectly into a lunchbox! This is so easy to make that the kids can do it themselves and bonus…It’s fun & healthy too!!
Grapes are one of those fruits that everyone loves. I think back and see the little chubby hands of my kids trying to pick up chopped grapes from their highchair tray. I remember how happy and excited they were as they picked each piece up and popped it in their mouth. Boy, do I miss those days! Well, not the diapers, lol!!
Age doesn’t matter when it comes to grapes, everyone loves them! I make Grape Salsa & Cinnamon Sugar Chips often. My kids love it and my husband and I love it! Simple and refreshing!
Once again, I am happy to partner with Produce for Kids who teams up with Feeding America to bring meals to families in need.

Depending on where you live, your kids just went back to school or will after Labor day. Think about packing healthy lunches for them as well as teaching them to pack their own. Fruit and veggies are always a great choice. This easy recipe for Grape Salsa & Cinnamon Sugar Chips is easily packed for lunch. I used a variety of sweet, juicy grapes and scooped them up with crunchy homemade cinnamon and sugar chips…Yum! Making your own chips allows you to control the amount of sugar. You just need a little bit. This batch was made with some Midnight Moon Grapes from Sunworld, love their grapes!! They are always plump, fresh and full of flavor!
