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.
Love the snack station for the fridge loaded with bunches of healthy stuff! Here is the list from Real Simple for this snack station:
Jar of peanut butter (preferably the natural kind, for dipping) String cheese Yogurt Grapes 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)
Fish-shaped crackers (best bet: the kind sold at health-food stores that don’t have hydrogenated oils)
- A Real Simple kids’ mix: Cheerios, raisins, almonds, pretzels, and chocolate chips
- Fruit leathers
- Graham crackers
- Raisins or other dried fruits
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.
