Delicious After School Snacks

Posted Tuesday, August 11, 2009

Well, it's just about that time! Depending on what school your children are enrolled in, you may be busily bustling around town getting all the school supplies gathered!

Can you believe it?! Summer is almost over (at least here in the States)!

Within just a few weeks we'll all be back to the daily grind and routine of having our kids in school. No matter if your little ones attend preschool or even if you have older kids in the midst of their high school years, the bottom line is - life picks up once everything is back in session!

If your schedule is anything like mine (and if your children are the typical after school 'munchers' raiding the cabinets before they even drop their backpacks to the floor when they get home) - you'll soon be looking for easy to make, easy to take after school snacks! Snacks that provide at least some nutritional value and ones that will hold them over until you can get dinner on the table....maybe even something they can munch on to help keep them energetic & focused as they do their homework.

Well...this week I'm going to help you find great after school (or just about anytime) yummy snacks! Check out these delicious bites that put a spin on the usual everyday snacks:

Carrots with Peanut Dipping Sauce, Tiny Tortilla Pizzas, Cherries with Brown Sugar Dip, Strawberry 'Cheescakes'


6 Minute Potato Chips, Chocolate Banana Tortillas, Cucumber Yogurt Boats, Oh-So-Easy Peanut Butter Cookies
