  • 46 Healthy After School Snack Ideas

What do you serve to your kids when they come home after school?

You probably have an entire pantry full of packaged snacks that are ready to eat — because what parent doesn’t? But those snacks not only are not the healthiest stuff on the planet but also cost you quite a lot of money in the long run. After all, how many years do kids go to school again?

If nutrition and budget are your concerns too, why not start making snacks from scratch? Trust me, you do not need to be a chef to do this. Here are 46 healthy after-school snack ideas that will change your afternoons forever (and I’m just mildly exaggerating).
