After-School Snack Attack

Help your kids stay happy through dinner with tasty, healthy snacks




On-the-Go Snacks

It's not unusual for students to be fully booked for several hours after school.

Be sure their backpacks are well-supplied with snacks that travel well and don’t have to be refrigerated.

Hint: keep nuts and dried fruit in your cupboard for a quick and easy trail mix.


Refrigerator Snacks

Sometimes kids need more substantial mini meals. Keep these simple salads in the fridge and let the kids help themselves.


Quick Picks

These yummy after-school pick-me-ups can be ready in an instant.

My kiddos are usually starved by the time they get off the bus, so having something fast and yummy will help to tie them over till dinner time.:-) ty for nice ideas.
