100 Easy After School Snacks

I am all about after school snacks. My kids always come home from school starving, so I always try to have a snack ready for them when they come home. Here are a list of 100 of my favorites.

I LOVE the first day of school. It was almost as good as Christmas. I loved meeting my new teacher, new kids, and of course wearing new school clothes.
Another one of my favorite things was coming home from school and my mom had Snickerdoodles or peanut butter cookies in the oven.
They were a rare occasion because my mom tried to keep our after school snacks a little more healthy, but still delicious.
I decided to make a list of healthy and not so healthy after school snacks and hopefully it will give you a few different ideas of what to make for when your kids come home from school and are starving.

  1. Why is everything low fat?! You do realize food fat doesn't turn into fat on the body, right? And that low fat generally translates to sugar and chemicals? Dairy fats, in particular, are actually really beneficial for you! So you'd be tons wiser to give your kid an actual cup of ice CREAM rather than froyo. Food fat helps your hormone system function, whereas skimmed diary products can send your body out of whack wondering where that fat went...
