Anyone have a good snack idea I can throw together before the kiddos get home from school? I've got a teen boy and pre-teen girl and they are eating everything in the house!!

Might be a little heavy though... Maybe some type of quick bread?

Fast and VERY kid friendly.. they can make them and all you have to do is bake them! Pizza sauce, cheese and their choice of topping makes this a great snack or anytime meal!

Mexican Roll Ups

Submitted by: Robyn Webb 
A tasty alternative to sandwiches for a lunchbox or picnic. Roast beef, chopped tomatoes, bell peppers, and seasonings are rolled in whole wheat tortillas and wrapped in tinfoil. East to transport, and neat to eat.

What about a roll up? You can put anything they like inside. Ham, cheese or even peanut butter..

A new favorite in our house: Slice and peel one cucumbers. Mix with the juice of one lemon or lime and plenty of sea salt. An easy, healthy, refreshing snack! We like a lot of lime, but you can put as little or much as you want.

My granddaughters love Greek yogurt with blueberries and Trader's vanilla cluster cereal in it.

I feed my teenage cousin Benjamin plain old saltine crackers with melted cheese on them & sometimes a little seasoning. I had to think of something that was filling b/c he was eating us out of house & home! & he's only 14!! This so far has been my easiest & most successful solution.

1. cut up carrots and celery and package in ziplock bags with tiny blue cheese dip containers. 2. make basil rolls, package 2 in ziplock bags with dipping sauce in small dip containers. 3. make ready to go sandwiches (PBJ, ham and swiss, turkey and cheddar) in ziplock bags ready to eat. 4. cut up veggies like carrots, celery, red peppers, and put in ziplock bags with diff flavors of hummus. 5. slice up fruit (apples, strawberries, pineapple, watermelon) and put in ziplock bags with peanut butter dippers/strawberry yogurt dippers. 6. make ready to go parfaits in clear cups with snap lids (cheap sippy cups would work or the clear cups from starbucks) and layer, sweet honey greek yogurt, puried fruit (strawberries/blueberries/raspberries) and granola. attach a plastic spoon to the side with tape and your kids will love. 7. in small ziplock bags, place a string cheese, and 2-3 pieces of rolled up meat in a bag for quick snacks. You could use cheese cubes too. hope this helped! I tried to keep with healthy options.
