Does your child want a snack when they get home? What do you give that won't ruin their appetite for dinner?

Fruit, veggies, crackers, dried fruit and nuts, granola bars, yogurt. I think those are pretty much the basic snacks I do. They don't eat much during school lunch, so they are starving when they get home, but a handful of crackers or an apple isn't going to lessen their appetite for dinner.

 Youngest fav snack is bologna & string cheese. She is allowed just 1 of each 1 time a day. If we are eating late she is allowed to have popcorn, veggies, or a yogurt. Between lunch and when she gets home is so long that she is starving when she gets here. We try to eat within an hour of her getting home.

 Usually they have tortilla chips and salsa, cheese and crackers or fruit. Sometimes I will have baked goodies for them to have as snack.

 It depends on the day, usually fruits or veggies, but sometimes 1/2 bagels or trail mix.

My boys are always ravenous when they get home. They're allowed to have one small snack. Usually string cheese, gold fish crackers, apple sauce, yogurt, grapes, a cereal bar, peanuts.
