No-Cook After-School Snacks

The school year is halfway over and coming up with new after-school snack ideas can be hard. Here are some easy and fun snacks that, depending on your child’s age, kids can even make themselves.

  • Banana Pops: Peel a banana. Dip it in yogurt, and then roll in crushed cereal and freeze.
  • Fruit Shake-ups: Put ½ cup low-fat yogurt and ½ cup cold 100-percent fruit juice in a covered container and shake up a smoothie.
  • Sandwich Cutouts: Use cookie cutters like dinosaurs, stars and hearts to make fun shaped sandwiches. Make the sandwiches with low-fat cheese, lean meat and whole-grain bread.
  • Peanut Butter Balls. Mix peanut butter and bran or cornflakes in a bowl. Shape the mixture into balls with clean hands and roll them in crushed graham crackers.

For more information on healthy snacks for your child, consult a registered dietitian in your area and visit www.kidseatright.org.
