Super Cool After-School Snacks

We’ve said it before that snacking has become increasingly popular over the years, but it has always been common among children and adolescents, particularly after school. Many students eat lunch early—11:30 a.m. or even before—and then have an afternoon of classes and maybe even an after-school activity before their next opportunity to eat. It’s no surprise that most kids are starving by the time they get home and thus, reach for a snack.

School days can be exhausting, and weeknights can be even busier between after school extra curriculars, music lessons, sports and other activities. Depending on what time your child eats lunch at school, it can be a really long span until dinner’s ready. A stocked fridge and freezer for after school snacks can help you stave off hunger and avoid the evening meltdown from your kiddos.

Already hungry from their lunch several hours before, the trick is to give your kids after-school snacks that are hearty enough to satisfy their cravings but still leaves plenty of room for dinner.
