Did you know this special day has been designated to be celebrated on the 2nd Tuesday of September each year?

Ants on a log is a popular snack that's easy to make.  You simply spread peanut butter on celery and place raisins on top.  It's good and good for you.  In fact, the McKinley Health Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, recommends it as a healthy  snack.

With the kids back in school and more importantly, back to studying, this snack is a perfect way to help keep them fueled with brain food and to help them stay focused.  This iconic treat is not only for kids, but because it is a healthy way to snack, it can be enjoyed by both old and new generations.

Why not take some time to celebrate National Ants On A Log Day, by  indulging in this snack that is loved by millions of folks across our great country and around the world.
