Are you exhausted with the shear amount of snacks your kids are asking for these days? Maybe you find yourself grazing, too? If the answer is yes, then keep on reading! Today, I’m sharing with you how to minimize the kids from grazing the pantry all day, and how to create my Family-Friendly Popcorn Snack Board!
I partnered with my friends at Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP® to share all my tips and tricks and how to put this snack board together! The key to stopping the grazing and the forever question of “I’m hungry I need a snack” is letting everyone make their own snack bowls.

Whole Foods Market Pickup and Delivery
I don’t know about you, but I’ve fully embraced the online grocery ordering and delivery services! Select Whole Foods stores have the option to do pickup and/or delivery!
You will want to visit the Prime Now app or primenow.com/wholefoods to start shopping. Make sure to select “Pickup” using the drop down window in the top-left corner of the screen. After filling your Whole Foods Market cart, move to checkout and choose your preferred pickup time from the available options. Checkout the store locator to see if your location has this option. Since I’m opting to continue to keep my kids out of grocery stores, this is the perfect option for my family.
All about Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP®
When I shop at Whole Foods Market Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP® Sea Salt Popcorn is always a must on my grocery list. I love how convenient this popcorn is. We go through at least one bag a week in my home. Plus it’s gluten free, Non GMO, and has no high-fructose corn syrup in it! It’s an excellent “better for you” option making it a win in my book.
What do you put on a popcorn snack board?
Here are a list of just some of the snacks you might want to consider putting on a popcorn snack board.
- Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn
- Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP Sea Salt Popcorn
- Dried Fruits like apricots, blueberries, pineapples, cherries
- Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP White-Cheddar Popcorn
- Cheddar Crackers
- Graham Crackers
- Chocolate Graham Cookies
Basically, any type of snack in your pantry that is dry works best with this board. You want a nice mix of sweet and salty. I love doing a variety of flavored popcorn’s paired with a variety of snacks!
How to put together a snack board
I find whenever I can let my kids get involved in the food they eat, the less resistance I get from them. My method of putting out a variety of snacks for them to select, helps with the constant visits to the pantry. I’ve used this method for quite some time. I created a board with a wide variety of snacks, then everyone makes a bowl that they can munch on.
This popcorn snack board is perfect for the whole family! In the past, I would make these if we had friends over to play. I would keep the tray out and kids could make snack bowls (parents too).
These days, since we are limiting seeing friends, I’m not making big boards like this. If it’s during the weekday, I simply pull the snacks I want them to enjoy from my pantry. Then I let the kids pick which snacks they want in their bowls. I go a step further to use a container fitted with lids. Label their “container” and that’s the snacks they get for the day!
I like to make this snack board on the weekend when my husband is home, too. To make this snack tray, I grab a large tray. This can be a baking sheet or anything you might have on hand. Then, grab 3 bowls for the popcorn and place them on my tray. I then start to place the various snacks around the board. You want to group the snacks in little piles. I like to mix up the colors; we eat with our eyes after all.
Once all the snacks are on the board, we start to fill up the popcorn bowls. First up, Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP Sea Salt Popcorn with my little helper, Ryder.
Then, Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn. That is his favorite, and he always likes to put his hand under the bag as I try to pour it in the bowl!
Finish filling up the popcorn on the board, and then it’s time to fill up our snack bowls!
