Kid-Approved After School Snacks
Snacks in a Snap!
Afternoon snacks help kids battle the after-school grouch by supplying them with enough energy to carry them through until dinner. Here are a few between-meal munchies your kids can whip up on their own.
- 1 red apple
- 8 teaspoons creamy peanut butter
- 16 miniature marshmallows
Cut apple into quarters. Remove core and cut each quarter into four slices. Spread 1/2 teaspoon peanut butter on one side of each slice. Cut each marshmallow in half lengthwise. Place 4 marshmallow halves over peanut butter on 8 apple slices. Be sure to extend them over the peel. Top each with remaining apple slice, peanut butter side down. Smile!
- 1 flour tortilla
- 1 tablespoon Hiland Dairy Butter, room temperature
- 1/4 cup Hiland Dairy Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Hiland Dairy Sour Cream, for topping
- Salsa, for topping
Butter one side of the tortilla. Place buttered side down in a medium skillet over medium heat. Spread cheese over one half of the tortilla and fold it in half. Cook one side for 1 minute until golden brown and cheese is melted. Flip over and cook the other side. Top with sour cream and salsa.
Encourage your kiddos to have a glass of Hiland Dairy Milk with their afternoon snack. The milk will give them the protein they need to re-energize their bodies after a long day at school.
