Totally not-boring after-school snacks

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a classic that will never get old, but mixing up your after-school snack routine every once in a while is a great idea.

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?

  1. What then does it mean to be an educator? Does it signify something different than the assigned job title? What I have learned through my work in higher education is that becoming an educator is not an automatic process. Everyone who is teaching adult students is not functioning as an engaging and highly effective educator. However, it is possible to learn how to educate rather than teach and that requires making a commitment to the profession.
