3 Healthy after school snacks your child will love

After School snacks

3 Healthy After-school Snacks

It can be so easy for them to grab a bag of chips to snack on in the afternoon but, as research continues to show, simple carbohydrates aren't necessarily your kids' friends.

1. Yogurt

Yogurt is an easy, grab-and-go, nutritious snack that most kids find yummy. It's also a great source of calcium and vitamin D, and studies show eating it can boost a body's ability to build strong bones. While it's naturally packed with goodness, pay attention to the yogurt you buy -- avoid ingredients that you can't pronounce, artificial coloring and high-fructose corn syrup. Bring home organic, low-fat or non-fat varieties to keep this snack healthy. Add honey for sweetness, and have fresh fruit and dried fruits on hand for kids to add as toppers. Or whip up a yogurt smoothie that contains your child's favorite 100 percent pure fruit juice and fresh fruit.

2. Peanut Butter Sandwich

Peanut butter sandwiches are a long-standing snacking tradition, whether after school or as a Break snack in school. Peanut butter is rich in both protein and fiber, and when you make the sandwich on whole wheat (or another whole-grain bread) you also increase the high-fiber carbohydrates. And that's all good news for kids. Don't spoil little appetites, though. A half a sandwich will go a long way to satisfy after-school snack attacks.


3. Keep washed, snack-sized fruits and veggies on hand in the refrigerator along with dipping options. Use single-serving containers to pre-portion the amount that's served up -- and kids can easily serve themselves this way. And when you're shopping, ask the kids to help choose which fruits and veggies you buy -- if they picked them out, they're more likely to eat them.

The story of Dairyland

The story of Dairyland

The story of Dairyland starts in 1979 with a small ice cream company along Pemba Street, Nairobi. It comprised a basic ice cream manufacturing plant, a very small office and two distribution vans. In those days the challenges of running an ice cream factory were many: a staff of just twenty people at the time, limited technology and storage space, difficulty in differentiating brands due to limited packaging options and limited market access both in Nairobi and upcountry. 

In spite of these challenges, the brand has more than survived; it has thrived. The Dairyland team has been, and still is, at the fore-front of innovation and exceptional service delivery, which has propelled the company to becoming the leaders in the ice cream sector in East Africa. Over the years, the brand has innovated some of the most delicious ice cream flavors presented in attractive and eye catching packaging and Dairyland’s vision of having the widest range of quality ice cream has been realised. 

The company has also experienced unprecedented growth, acquiring larger, more modern machinery; more skilled staff; extra office space, equipment and systems. At present, it has over 250 employees and a fleet of over 30 refrigerated vehicles to service the whole of East African region. 

More over, the brand Dairyland has expanded to include chocolate by the name Chocolart. This therapeutic, guilt free indulgence comes in six flavours that are beautifully wrapped in a package inspired by art. Chocolart provides a sweet momentary escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life and is packed in 20gms, 50gms and 90gms

This is how to make delicious cakes the Joybells way...

Joybells cakes

When baking, bakers strive to follow recipes that bring out unique tastes as well as texture of their cakes.

Beatrice Muteru of Joybells cakes reveals her secret to Epepea achieving utmost deliciousness in their cakes.

Read on...

“For margarine, we invest heavily in prestige.” She told Epepea.

According to her, prestige does not alter the desired taste of the cake as it does not contain a lot of salt.

“They also listen to us when we air our suggestions. They listen and make adjustments to suit our specific needs,” she added.

Made from a base of pure vegetable oils, this smooth, premium margarine is a soft yellow color with a fine, clean taste.

Not only is Prestige Margarine made from cholesterol free oils and fats, but it is also very rich in Vitamins A, D, E, B6 and B12.

Prestige does not contain any hydrogenated oils or fats making it healthy for consumption.

There are 2 variants of Prestige Margarine; Prestige Margarine Original Recipe and Prestige Enhanced with Vanilla

Prestige Margarine is used to make delicious bread, cakes, creams and pastries. Prestige Margarine can be used to make tasty chicken and fish poussin sauce. You’ll find it hard to believe it’s not butter!

Fun Activities for your family

Fun Activities for your family

The more time you spend together; the better chance you have of sharing quality experiences. A strong family finds that opportunities for quality time emerge from quantity time.

Below are some fun things to do with family:

Interactive Movie Night

Watch a movie together as a family. A great way to keep this idea interactive includes watching a film with a human interest message and discussing it afterwards. This way the kids learn valuable lessons as well!

Engage in A Family Competition

Art contest, maybe? All it takes is some crayons, markers, paper, glue, tape and some odds and ends from around the house. When you involve your kids in a group task, you encourage feelings of self-esteem and competence. Make the task more memorable by giving a little prize to each child, for his or her creation.

Cook and Eat

Always remember a family that eats together, stays together. Make it a point to have a “Family Meal Night”, where everyone prepares a different dish. This is a great lesson on teamwork and everyone will enjoy a tasty meal cooked together.

Let’s Play

Arrange for a match with friends. Ask your children to arrange a match for both the adults as well as the younger ones. You’ll crash your fun goals and exercise goals, all in one game!


A barbecue is the best idea for outdoor activities. Invest in a small barbeque stove, call your family members and prepare a barbecue party! Each family can take up one responsibility; the one with the largest garden or open space can host the party.

Board Games

A fun-packed weekend need not cost a fortune. Board games such as scrabble are a great way to make the weekend fun for all members of the family. Dig out the old board games from the attic and teach a new generation to play.

Visit A Zoo

It is always fun to go see wild animals in the zoo! This is the kind of activity that is fun and serves all age groups. It’s a great way to catch a short break and helps you connect with nature.

Camping Grab a tent and tell stories while sitting around the campfire. It is good to remind the children that fun doesn’t have to cost money. Any holiday ideas you’d love to share with us? Comment below!
