After school snacks are a necessity that can help your kids to feel great, focus on their home work, and leave room for dinner if done properly. Kids are often ravenous when they get home, so it is easy to let health and good sense get derailed when they grab the chips or gorge on every dessert in the kitchen. Having snacks already prepared can help you avoid this eventuality and allow you to infuse their snacks with nutritious goodness that they would otherwise be skipping.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Bites
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a staple or many kids’ diets, but these bites are just a little healthier than your average PB&J. Quinoa, sunflower seeds, and oats make up the base of the tasty little tarts. Real maple syrup adds the sweetness, natural peanut butter packs a protein punch, and strawberry preserves make them taste great.
