Great Afternoon Snacks

Many of you have asked what we give our kids for afternoon snacks.  Ask and you shall receive!  BTW – these are perfect snacks for adults, too.Snacks are given to bridge the gap between two meals as opposed to filling a child’s belly.  You can guarantee that if the snack is too big there won’t be much room in that belly for a healthy dinner.

  • Banana Medallions dipped in Sunflower Seeds
  • Cheez Its, Craisins, and Chocolate Animal Crackers
  • Granola Bar or Granola Thin and Small Glass of Milk
  • Frosted Mini Wheats and M&Ms

Sometimes a snack needs to have a little more “oomph” in order to provide enough nutrition and staying power for after school sports or other high energy activities before dinner.

  • Apple Slices with Peanut Butter
  • Mini Pretzels with a Cheese Stick
  • Greek Yogurt
