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.
