    I agree with Terra – terrific afternoon snacks for adults too! My daughter is in her last year of high school and is a good lunch eater (her school lunches are amazing), but a wholesome snack always goes down well. She tends to go for hummus on quinoa-rice cakes or plain yogurt with granola and berries, but sometimes something a bit less nutritious too! Recently I have been leaving some ready to bake panko vegetable fries for her to pop in the oven, but that might be a bit elaborate for everyday snacking. {http://kelliesfoodtoglow.com/2013/08/23/crispy-middle-eastern-vegetable-fries/}. I really appreciate your tips and look forward to what you come up with for us adults 😀

      Thanks Kellie! And, yes, I would happily eat them too :-) Wish my kids would eat hummus, since hubby and I love it, but I couldn’t stand it as a kid, so there is hope yet!

    Now that I have a little one, I need to brush up on some after-school snack ideas – she’ll be snacking in no time! And thank you so much for adding my energy bites to your list. What a fab roundup!

      I remember the good old days when my kids were babies and they would eat ANYTHING I fed them! BTW-My friend just texted me-says she’s making your energy bites this afternoon :-)

    OK , I swear I tweeted about this BEFORE I noticed you included our oat squares (thx!) This is such an important post – love how you explain why it’s necessary for an after-school snack but also the healthy (& tasty) ideas. I’m seeing other posts on this same topic and the snacks are all sweet and really not balanced. Here’s hoping most read your post!

    Great list of after school snacks! I’ll definitely make some of them.

    My son isn’t a great lunch eater, so we always have a healthy snack.

    I loved this post!
    Although I don’t have kids yet, I can all too relate to those after school responses from when I was little. And I am sure my mom remembers those days with tears all too well. 😉
    I might just use these after school snack ideas for me! :)
