My kids love that I have them a little snack ready for them right when they get home from school. I find that If I have it prepared and ready for them to eat, they are of course less likely to go searching through the cupboards and grab stuff that isn't that great and isn't going to satisfy their tummies long enough until dinner time. It's fun to think of things to give them, but honestly sometimes I am scrounging to find something real quick because I forgot..haha, I know they will be disappointed if I don't have it ready. I teach piano directly after they get home from school, so I have no time to prepare it after that. It's gotta be ready and quick.
I made this Banana Bread and they had a slice with a box of raisins and milk when they got home yesterday. Apples with PB or almond butter or yogurt is always a hit. Yogurt with berries and granola. String cheese and a piece of fruit, cubed ham, olive, cucumber and cheese kabobs. Be creative and make it fun for your kids, it also teaches them what good snack options are. Since it's so close to Halloween there are some fun things to do.
I plan on making this one for them sometime soon. Cute!

Honestly my kids do get tired of "Mom's Healthy Stuff" ALL the time..they are my little guinea pigs :)
They would be surprised if I let them have "candy" when the get home.
Shhhhh...don't tell them that this is "Healthy" Halloween candy! :)
can't wait to try some of the fun options.
Can't wait to find some fun stuff for Thanksgiving and Christmas!
Do you have some great after school snack ideas or Healthier Halloween treats??
