After School Snacks - simple and delicious

October 8, 2017

My idea of an after school snack is something simple, healthy, few ingredients AND kid friendly of course. Here are some of our all time favorite treats for kids. These will go perfectly in the lunch box as well!

 "The Stuffed Garden"

Ingredients: tomato, cream cheese, carrot, cucumber, dill

No-Dairy Diet? Make this with any other favorite dressing












Hummus-Stuffed Sweet Peppers

Ingredients: hummus, sweet peppers, basil flakes

There are tons of great organic hummus brands out there. However, making your own hummus is actually really easy, and so delicious when it's super fresh.






 Pasta Kebab

Ingredients: orechiette, spinach, cherry tomato

Rene's Tip: Kids love plain pasta. Set some aside from dinner and keep in the fridge for when snack time comes, so you don't have to wait for the water to boil.










Ingredients: Greek yogurt, blackberries, strawberries, chia seeds, toasted coconut flakes











Cucumber Sandwiches

Ingredients: cucumbers, cream cheese, sea salt, dill
















Apple Sandwich

Ingredients: apple slices, peanut butter, hemp seeds, coconut flakes, chia seeds. You can 

substitue peanut butter with sunflower butter.






Traditional Ants on a Log with a Twist 

Ingredients: Celery, cream cheese, figs, chives and chia, sunflower seeds, crushed whole wheat crackers.  





Zucchini Pizza Bites

Ingredients: Sliced zucchini, pasta sauce, shredded cheese, garlic ... in the oven for 10 min at 350. Even adults love these! You can serve as an appetizer at your next party. This yummy treat

works best when served warm (for adults, hot!)
