Remember that scene in “The Hobbit” where Bilbo Baggins’ entire kitchen is raided by the Dwarfs? That is what my house looks like after school. It might have something to do with the fact that 3 of my 4 are boys, and it seems they have developed hollow legs. Ravenous. I had to come up with a plan.
Enter, the snack tray.
Every day, it is filled with a hearty, but healthy snack. It takes a little prep on my part, but it’s worth it! Sometimes I make this while I make school lunches in the morning. They have to eat the entire contents of the food on the snack try before getting something else.
This particular day was celery and bananas they could dip in bowls of peanut butter. Other days it is filled with fruit, cheeses, and meat. Others with popcorn, nuts, yogurt, and hard boiled eggs.
When we are on the go after school I make these snack shack packs.
What about you? How do you solve the after school munchies?
