15 Healthy After School Snacks

We’ve almost made it through the first week of school and so far everyone is loving their teachers, classmates and school.  I’m thrilled my kiddos love school as much as they do and know that they are going to have a great year!  I’m not sure if it’s having lunch at 10:50 (anyone else think that is crazy earlier for lunch?!?) or the fact that they are growing and learning takes a lot of energy, but my kids are starving when they get home from school.  Hangry type of starving…you know, so hungry that the lack of food causes them to get super frustrated, whiny, angry or all of the above.  And we simply can’t have any of that, so I’ve rounded up 15 Healthy After School Snacks that will keep them happy and focused after school.
