  • depends on what time it is. If it is too close to 6... no snacks. But before... cookies, zebra cakes, fruit, chips.. whatever we have. they usuallyu get a snack at the after care... so by the time i get him and get home if it is too close to supper... no snacks. :)

  • no snack for my kids. They get home from school and go straight to nap time! :)
    then when they wake up it's time for dinner.
    On a rare occasion they will ask me for a snack and i usually check their lunch boxes. If they are not empty i will let them finish what's in their lunch.

  • We always did stuff like 1/2 grilled cheese and some kind of veggie with a ranch dip. Followed by a chocolate snack cake. Juice boxes, mini v-8s and chocolate milk was popular drinks. To this day my sons still expect to see some kind of chocolate snack cake in the pantry. When they got older it was hot pockets, beefy soups, loaded baked potatoes, Totino's Pizza was favorite. (growing boys eat a lot)
