I don’t know about yours, but when my kids come home from school, they are ravenous. I try to have something ready for them when they walk in the door; otherwise they tear my kitchen apart in their attempt to satisfy their raging hunger.
Here are some of our favorite after-school snacks. What are yours??
5 Healthy After-School Snacks for Kids
These were sent to me for review, and my kids love them. I like that they have only 5 simple ingredients and they are verified non-GMO. They come in 5 interesting flavors and are available in the deli section—right next to all the dips. They’re fantastic by themselves, but we also like them with my homemade salsa or homemade guacamole.
2. Sliced Bell Peppers
There’s nothing original here, but if I have them washed and cut up and set out, I’m always amazed at how many of these my kids will eat… especially when they’re hungry. They don’t even care if there’s dip or not, but they will happily dunk them in Ranch salad dressing if I have some around.
3. Apple Sandwiches
My kids love these apple sandwiches a la 100 Days of Real Food. They take apples and peanut butter up a notch or two!
These are so yummy my kids don’t even notice the spinach.
These have been a longtime favorite. They’re the next best thing to homemade chocolate chip cookies!
What do your kids like to snack on after school? I’m always open to new ideas.
