After-school snacks

rockycat | Apr 22, 2009 06:11 AM

I'm at a loss. I have a sadly typical overbooked child who has either sports or music 4 days a week after school. By coordinating with the Spouse we're able to make sure that we have a normal sit-down family dinner nearly every night but the Offspring still needs a snack right after school. I'm running out of ideas.

I need something that can be consumed in the car without making a major mess. I rely a little too much on chips or popcorn because that's easy to grab and toss in her gym bag. I also use dried fruit and the occasional cookie. She rarely gets sweets at lunch so I don't mind doing some sugar in the afternoon.

Any suggestions for something neat, nutritious, and tasty?
