Delicious and healthy after-school snacks
Sep 122014
 

Does your kid come home from school hungry, wanting a nice snack? Mine does, and she is 3 years old. After preschool, she comes home starving, but that is partly because she is a picky eater and will sometimes refuse to eat her lunch at school (even though I send her favorite foods). Anyway, kids will be kids sometimes, so I make sure I always have healthy, easy-to-prepare after school snacks on hand. And she does eat those!

Check out this list of after-school snacks- they’re healthy, delicious and take almost no time to make!

  2. Caramelized Apple Chips:

    These crispy, crunchy caramelized apple chips are a healthy snack full of fiber and only require an apple, sugar and oven to make (no dehydrator needed for these apple chips!)

    These small bites of oatmeal, M&Ms and other goodies may be a perfect after-school snack by providing a burst of energy, but they are also prone to being consumed by a snacking Mama!

  5. Low-fat cookies and cream smoothie:
