Quick & Easy after School Snacks

I can’t believe it’s that time again – Back to School! The kids and I are working on getting back to our routine which is bad and wonderful at the same time. Bad because it’s the end of the summer, the pool, the lazy nights, the camp fires, the vacations! But wonderful because we will be back on routine and it won’t be so hard to get them out of bed early in the mornings!. We’ve been slowly but surely going to bed earlier, getting up and actually getting ready for the day, making our list for school supplies, new clothes, shoes, and of course lunches and  easy to make snacks!  

My girls are finally at an age where they can come home and be by themselves after school until I get home from work. We have strict rules for the short time they are home: no one  else in the house, no answering the door, keep the doors locked, check in when you get there, no oven or boiling water, no fighting, etc. They usually like to relax after they get off the bus with a computer  game or a bit of T.V. before I get home and start making them do homework. The one thing that is always on the after school check list is an after school snack. My girls both have early lunches so by the time they get off the bus they are starving. If I was at home I’d have them dinner ready, but I work and our dinners don’t come until 6:30 or later so we’ve had to come up with some quick and easy after school snacks.


We made our way to Walmart to pick out some easy snacks that they are able to fix on their own – and enjoy. My girls are a bit picky when it  comes to their afternoon snacks so not just anything would do – and I want to make sure they aren’t just munching on junk. We searched the frozen food isle and  the girls found some yummy Delimex beef rolled tacos and chicken taquitos and I  was thrilled to find out that Bagel Bites are made with real  cheese and homemade sauce with 0 trans fat.


My favorite part about these easy snacks is that my oldest is a microwave pro – no oven needed! They get home and they make a beeline for the freezer so they can heat up their snack and not miss their favorite afternoon show, or relax and read for a bit before homework and chore time start when I get home.


She even fixes a snack for her sister (which I swear by the fact that children get along only when parents are not present) and they aren’t calling me every 5 minutes to ask me when I’ll be home and what we are having for dinner. Full bellies = happy kids.
