Awesome After School Snack Recipes for Kids
One of my hands-down favorite snacks to make after school is a quick and easy veggie tray.
You can use your favorite store-bought or homemade dip (many can even be made in advance for easy grab and go snacking) and add all your kiddo’s favorite fruit and veggies along with cheese, crackers, and more!
Another fast favorite for snack time are these pizza wonton cups. I also make them into baked pizza rolls from time to time. These little open face pizza cups are always such a hit!
Have some spotty brown bananas sitting on the counter? Turn those bad boys into the most delicious banana streusel muffins for a tasty grab and go snack.
