Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

NATIONAL ANTS ON A LOG DAY – Second Tuesday in September

National Ants On A Log Day Second Tuesday in September


The registrar of National Day Calendar has designated the second Tuesday in September of each year as National Ants On A Log Day.  This day recognizes this iconic and healthy food snack enjoyed by millions of people across the USA and around the world.

Ants on a log is a snack made by spreading peanut butter on celery and placing raisins on top.  The snack name was first used in the 1950s.  The typical peanut butter version of ants on a log is recommended as a healthy snack by the McKinley Health Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Early September is a time when kids are headed back to school and more importantly, back to studying. To keep them (and their parents) fueled with brain food is an important tool for staying focused.  The designation is to celebrate and encourage healthy snacking using one of the most iconic treats that both old and new generations enjoy.
