5 Fun & Healthy After School Snacks for Kids
Owl Rice Cake Snacks
Your eyes control your stomach, and these Owl Rice Cake Snacks are so adorable the kids are just drawn to them! Half of the fun is letting your child help you create the owl. I love that these use healthy ingredients like fruit, peanut butter, and a rice cake so you don't feel guilty about snacking after you have created it!
Alphabet Snack Mix
Whoever said you shouldn't play with your food is crazy! We have practiced our spelling words with this Alphabet Snack Mix before! Not only is this fun for after school but it is great in their lunchboxes too!
These fun and healthy Apple Cookies aren't cookies at all, but they are so delicious they could be. Not only are they super simple to make but my kids absolutely flip out for them. YUM!
Homemade Granola Bars
These All Natural Homemade Granola Bars are one of my favorite grab and go snacks! You can customize them to your families likes and they are super easy to make! Just grab one for a quick breakfast or snack when you are running out the door!
Baked Peanut Butter Oatmeal
I added one more recipe because this can always be found in my kitchen. This Baked Peanut Butter Oatmeal is great for breakfast or for a snack. The kids love it and the protein and oatmeal make it filling enough to tide them over until dinner.
