Are you tired of leaving the same boring snacks out for Santa and his Reindeer every year? We’ve heard from Santa that you need some suggestions so you can mix things up for the big guy in red.

Christmas time means Santa, a mysterious white-bearded man who enters the house to leave presents for good children.

Parents have been enjoyed convincing their little ones of his existence for decades, bringing a little magic and goodwill into everyone’s life.

It has become a Christmas tradition to leave out snacks for Santa and his reindeer on Christmas Eve to thank them for delivering gifts and give them enough energy to complete their journey.

Woe betide the bleary-eyed parents who forget to consume some of the snacks in the early hours of the morning. Children love to wake up and see that all the snacks have been eaten and Santa really did come!

Make it easy on yourself and Santa with these great snacks.
