after school snacks

ceekskat | Aug 17, 2007 10:57 AM

Since back-to-school is around the corner, I thought I'd ask other parents what they provide for snacks after school. It always seems my kids (girls 8 & 11) are ready for an entire meal by 3:30! They balk at fruit, cheese & crackers unless I plate it for them as if I'm competing for the Next Food Network Star. Even if they do eat fruit & crackers, they're hungry again in an hour if not less. Cookies & milk you say, but they want warm out of the oven. I have treated them in the past to an easy snack of Nestle easy bake cookies but then that's all they ask for! It is not easy trying to give healthy snacks without resulting in "mom, you NEVER buy anything good!". Help!
