More Snack Ideas for the Peeps…

After writing the last post on lunches for the kiddos, I felt better……but now what do we do when they come home after school and they are hungry, hungry, hungry.  HELP!!!

Okay, here are some fantastic ideas that I found for great afternoon snacks.

Real Simple

Love the snack station for the fridge loaded with bunches of healthy stuff!  Here is the list from Real Simple for this snack station:  

Refrigerator Snack Station
Jar of peanut butter (preferably the natural kind, for dipping)
String cheese
Assorted crudités—baby-cut carrots, celery sticks, pepper slices—in plastic bags
Orange segments
Lunch-meat roll-ups (like turkey-and-Swiss or ham-and-Cheddar)

Tub of hummus (for dipping)

Real Simple

Pantry Snack Station

       Fish-shaped crackers (best bet: the kind sold at health-food stores that don’t have          hydrogenated oils)

    • Real Simple kids’ mix: Cheerios, raisins, almonds, pretzels, and chocolate chips
    • Fruit leathers
    • Graham crackers
    • Pretzels
    • Cheerios
    • Almonds
  • Raisins or other dried fruits
Now that we have after school taken care of, here is an interesting party idea……kids snack station at the appropriate height requirement……
Apartment Therapy…..and last but not least handy snacks for packing up that diaper bag for the toddlers….

I’m in love with these cute reusable snack bags from Harriet’s Haven.  What a great idea for those snacks in the diaper bag.

….and reusable makes it even better.  No more ziplock bags in the trash.

You can purchase these bags at

Do you have snack ideas for your kids that are easy and fast to put together as well as healthy…..would love to hear from you.

Until next time….
