Without fail, almost every day my children hopped into my car after school the very first thing that would as is “did you bring any snacks?”
Despite the fact that they go to school with a very full lunchbox every day that includes a SNACK for the afternoon, they are always starving when they get home. I’m often really worried they might start chewing on their seatbelts sometimes. We’re talking that hungry!
We’re a busy family and much of the time we do the typical after school snacks ; granola bars, fruit, cheese sticks and such. But sometimes it is fun to change things up a bit. Plus, I swear the more interesting the snack, the more likely they are to stay full until dinner time.
However, did you just hear me mention “busy”. Yes, like all families today, we are B-U-S-Y. Our schedules are hectic and I don’t have too much time for getting creative with food. But I did track down some super easy after school snacks for busy families that are fun without too much fuss.
