Now that school has started, you are back into a routine. A common part of every kid’s routine is having an after-school snack. While there are a number of products you could purchase at the store, making something from scratch is not only more affordable but also fun. There are so many fun treats you can make. This is just a small way to let your kids know that you love them and want to do something nice for them. The list below is loaded with awesome after-school snacks kids love.
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.
Speaking of which, 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.
What are your child’s favourite after-school snacks? Do your kids reach for cookies, fruit, or maybe crackers? Do you prefer they eat something healthy or is this a time to let them indulge? Share your favourite snacks to make for your kids so that we can all benefit from even more great ideas.
