Fun and Easy After School Snacks
My two older kids are back in school full time. I’m finding that I really miss them and summer went way too fast. When they walk through the door, I’m so excited to see them, but food is usually the first thing on their mind. They both eat around noon and don’t get home until around 3:30 so I definitely understand why they want a snack at that point. If I don’t have something ready for them to eat, they usually want ice cream or something else that isn’t incredibly healthy for them. If I have something ready for them though, they usually eat it all up and then have the fuel to get their homework done. I created a collection on foodie of some very fun and easy after school snacks. A lot of them incorporate whole foods, fresh fruits and veggies so they have nutritious choices when they get home.

I like the idea of making snacks fun for kids. Mine get excited about shaped pancakes so I know some of these would be a huge hit with them. One of my favorite recipes from this collection is the celery airplanes. It combines peanut butter, celery, graham crackers and rolos for wheels to give them some veggies, protein and a bit of chocolate as well.

I’m going to continue to add snacks to this collection as I find ones that my kids would like. It will be great to reference too. Now I just need to start a board for dinners that would be quick and easy as well. You can make your own collection on foodie. Just sign up for an account and start adding recipes different collections that you create. You can also install the bookmark tab that lets you add from any website that you are on. I find that I actually use it a lot.


Do your kids have a favorite after school snack?
