Eating an after school snack gives your kids a chance to unwind after a long day at school. It’s good to give your kids a chance to eat a healthy snack and do something they want to do. Let them watch TV or play video games for a half-hour or so before beginning homework. Kids need a break just like we do. This would also be a good time to have a bit of family time. You could play board games, sit and talk, colour together, whatever. It just depends on how old your kids are.

There are after-school snacks in this list that are good for a variety of age ranges. Some are great for younger kids while others will work for kids of all ages. Don’t limit these to being after-school snacks either. You can make these and pop them into your child’s lunchbox as well.
