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.
