Healthy After School Snacks

Published On July 30, 2013 | By Christa Schueler | Cafe Mom, Eating Healthy, Family, Food, Just For Dads, Recipes

My two school-aged children take lunch with them because my son has dietary restrictions and my daughter refuses to eat cafeteria food.  When they come home from their long day of learning, all they want to do is eat.  Education makes you hungry!  So I try to provide them with healthy and nutritious snacks that will fill them up but not ruin their appetites for dinner. I’m always on the hunt for appetizing but healthy after school snack recipes and ideas that will satisfy hungry tummies.

Recess has some great healthy after school snack recipes and ideas from mommy bloggers who understand the importance of providing their children with wholesome goodies.

    • Thanks Ellen for sharing with Recess readers! I know they will be a hit here in Las Vegas when it’s still record temps during those first back to school months.
