Anyone else’s kids get off the bus ready to cut someone if they don’t have a snack ASAP? With early lunchtimes and active days, my children are hungry by the time they get home. I am so very much still growing and learning as a mom–this is the first year both my kiddos are in school full day!–and I’m only now getting a handle on the whole after school snack business. I’ve learned a few tips and tricks that suit us well, and I’m here to share them here with you–one stressor you needn’t battle, mama! We’re here to help you sort it 🙂
3 Smart After School Snack Ideas
- Kids must finish their lunch. Dude, packing lunches day after day is no fun, let’s be honest. I work hard to fill their boxes with healthy choices they will enjoy (no easy task!). We have set a rule that whatever they don’t finish at lunch, they will eat for their after school snack. Works well and no waste!
- Start healthy. If they have finished their lunch before they get home, we always go for a healthy choice first–a yogurt, cheese stick, apple, etc.
- If after finishing lunch and their healthy bite, they still ask for more snack, this is where the sweetness comes in! As my kids are both active and enjoy a balanced diet, I am happy to allow them the occasional treat. And I am rather particular about what we choose as after school snack treats!
Super After School Snack Treat Idea
Who doesn’t love Teddy Grahams? I remember enjoying them as a child, and they were one of the first finger-food snacks I introduced to my babies. This brand is a classic, and for a good reason–their products are delicious and so very well loved by kiddos! When I learned that Teddy Grahams introduced a new product, TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks, I was eager to check them out for our family. The result? A total win!
Why do we love TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks?
- They are a loveable bear-shaped snack made with quality ingredients such as milk, eggs and chocolate.
- TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks contain no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors and no artificial colors.
- TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks are available at Walmart in the Cookie/Cracker aisle.
- When we have to quickly hop off the bus and head out to an afternoon activity, TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks are the perfect on-the-go treat as they come individually wrapped and easy to toss in your bag!
