I know that when my kids come home from school, they are so hungry. I don’t want them filling up on chips and crackers, so I try to have snacks already made for them. I try to organize our meals for the week and set aside time for making snacks too.If you are looking for easy after school snacks that are delicious and don’t take a lot of time to make, you have come to the right place! My kids weren’t big sandwich eaters when they were smaller, so I had to use my imagination when coming up with lunches and snacks ideas. I packed a lot of fresh fruit, veggies, bagels, cereal and hummus. But there are so many more ideas that can be added to school lunches and after-school snacks.
My blogger friends helped me out with some delicious and simple additions for after school snacks. You can choose one of these wonderful suggestions when you don’t have much time and your kids are super hungry. These snacks will tide them over until dinner time.
