Ham and Cheese Apple Wraps: Healthy Finger Foods

I love to snack.  I often have a pocket full of chocolate chips and nuts to satisfy my sweet tooth throughout the day.  I enjoy chips and salsa before the meal and after the meal almost more than the meal itself.  I even take crackers and grapes to bed with me at night, just in case I get hungry while I sleep, which happens more often than not.

For better or worse, I am passing this habit along to my children.  Ada, in her sweet toddler voice, is always begging for “A nack mama, a nack.”  We can’t make it through an afternoon without a good round of snacks.

As often as we find ourselves snacking around here, I have been trying to come up with some Easy + Healthy finger foods.  These Ham and Cheese Apple Wraps, inspired by my Gouda + Apple Croissant and some meat and cheese hors d’oeuvres I recently tried at a wedding, are simple and tasty – perfect after school snacks or even a healthy party platter.  Paired with a Honey Mustard Yogurt Dip, these wraps are quite delicious.

2 to 3 teaspoons honey
