What type of snacks do you give your kids after school?

My son likes the tiny variety bag of chips, snack crackers with cheese or not... and a capri sun or juicy juice. I don't give him much cheese cause he just can't handle too much.

Some times babycarrots and some ranch dressing to dip them in. Apples, oranges, grapes. Animal cookies or Nilla Wafers.

Most times he only wants a bottled water from the freezer I take out hours before he is due home and put in the fridge.

  • my ds will either have some cheese/crackers or peanutbutter on crackers, or an apple..he drinks lots of water! i think he goes all day without getting water, as he is always dying of thirst when he come home!

  • usually fruit or popcorn. Those are his favorites right now. Sometimes if he didn't eat his sandwich at lunch he'll have that.

  • I give my kids most of the things that you do. I also give them popcorn, bite size cereal, leftovers, yogurt, pretzels, homemade smoothies or peanuts.

  • My kids aren't old enough for school yet, but their after nap snack in the afternoon differs from a small bowl of grapes, peanut butter crackers, cheesy whale crackers, nilla wafers, animal crackers, apple slices, bananas, or occasionally something sweet like a muffin or sugar cookie.

  • fruit or cookies or homemade trail mix; depends on the day and what they're in the mood for, and what we have on hand.
