25+ EASY and FUN After School Snacks

I don’t know about you, but my kids are starving when they get home from school.  You’d think I didn’t pack anything in their lunch box.  I try and feed them a good snack because most the time we’re running out the door for church, soccer, or football.  My kids complained how boring all our snacks were so I tried to spice things up and make some interesting things (beside a granola bar)!  We got in the habit of having the same things over and over so I wrote out the list to remind myself and the kids of some good snacks they could choose instead.  I have it hanging on my refrigerator so they can glance over when deciding on a snack.

Yes, sometimes they take a little more planning and time to prepare, but it’s well worth it.  They are hungry 30 minutes later when they grab a convenience snack.  Many times they’ll grab a couple of items from my list for a variety.  I like them to have some protein to help keep them full.

I'm always on the lookout for healthy and fun after school snacks that my kids like. They are always starving when they get home.
