By the time the kids come home from school, they are usually starving. A lot of times they want something dessert-like or crunchy, but many other times, they're actually hungry for something heartier, especially when they have after-school sports and activities. They need something to get them through the day until dinner time. These after school snacks
include lots of creative, tasty and healthy recipes the kids will love.
From this Chex party mix recipe for the Crockpot (an excellent snack to make when you know the kids are having friends over after school) to my sweet and healthy chocolate chip cookies, these recipes can be made in advance and ready for the kids to grab when they're hungry.
Check out all of these recipes, and be sure to post reviews.
