I am settling my parents estates. One of the provisions is that I establish individual Trust accounts for the 4 grandchildren and that I act as sole Trustee until they each turn 45 years old (about 6 years from now). I have established the accounts and expect the funding to happen over the next 5 years (payouts from annuities to reduce the tax burden) and each account will be funded to about $220,000.

I am looking for ideas/suggestions of reasonable conservative investments looking toward long term growth. I am starting each of them out with 100 shares of AAPL, and 500 shares of PPL from the estate assets. Thoughts please.
