After a long day at school, treat them to an after school snack.
A hard day of work at school deserves a special reward and nothing is more satisfying than some delicious after school snacks. Learning (and running around during gym class and recess, of course) stirs up quite the appetite and by the time students get home, they’re going to be on the lookout for yummy snacks to devour. This year, be ready for the rush by stocking up on easy snacks like chips, pastries, and energy bars, balanced with some delicious healthy snacks for kids, too.
There are after school snacks for all kinds of taste buds. Does your kid crave something salty? Pretzels and potato chips are traditional go-to snacks for kids — and adults, too — that will never go out of snack style. Need something a bit heartier? You can’t go wrong with crackers and nuts, which have the advantage of being both yummy snacks and healthy snacks for kids. Protein and granola bars are also quick snacks that are filling and help generate a second wind (for playing outside or homework, that’s your call).
Want to reward hard work after a long day at school? Nothing brightens up an afternoon like sweet after school snacks. A delicious cookie is pretty much guaranteed to put a smile on a child’s face, whether it’s chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, fudge-filled or one of the many, many other delicious flavors out there. Other scrumptious quick snacks include brownies, pudding, and fruit snacks. Stock up on some of those, and you’ll be more popular than ever with your kids.
