Here are five playful twists on some classic after-school treats. Hopefully they'll help your kids look forward to not leaving the table until they finish their homework (we can dream!).
Yes, really. Put away the plastic-wrapped American cheese slices, grab some food coloring, and make the most amazing after-school snack to ever exist. You could serve it without sprinkles, but why?
A healthier but still super delicious twist on the traditional cookie. You'll need to hide the cookie jar. Plus, a sneaky way to get flaxseed into your family's diet.
Do colorful things taste better? Maybe. Make the smoothie base ahead of time and this is a super quick, and healthy, build-your-own after school snack.
Bake these at the beginning of the week and you're set for a week of after-school snacks. These are pretty healthy too, baked with quinoa and no added sugar.
A twist on both apples with peanut butter, and traditional nachos, these crunchy treats are another great build-your-own snack for kids that can go sweet or savory.
And as we're waiting for the weather to cool down a bit, keep the kids chill with these frozen treats.
What's your go-to after-school snack?
