30 healthy after-school snacks to help you and your kids power through the afternoon. All are simple, easy to make recipes that are kid-friendly.
It’s that time again. It’s like the Sunday nights of all Sunday nights. And I’m talking about back to school. Many of you might be rejoicing about the start of school. While I do enjoy the extra time to work, I really, really, really enjoy my summer vacations.
If you’re a regular reader, you might know that my husband is a teacher. With me working from home, that means we’re all home for the summer. We spend all or our time working on projects around the house and taking a few day trips during the week. Oh, and we’ve been sleeping past 8 every day.
We’ve hit the beach at least once a week since summer vacation started and have been hitting up the zoo, the splash pad, the park, having play dates with our neighbors, camping, shopping, and plenty of trips to Starbucks for my beloved pink drink.
As you can see, I wish it could be like this all the time. I mean really, who wouldn’t want an endless vacation?!
But all good things must come to an end. Kelsey and Adam are going back to school the same week. And with back to school, getting back into the daily grind of waking up early, packing lunches, and the mad rush of getting out of the house on time begins.
I don’t know about your kids, but when Kelsey comes home from school, she’s famished. I want to be on top of my snack game this year and put together a roundup of 30 healthy after-school snacks that both you and your kids will enjoy. Happy snacking!
