6 lip smacking after school snacksIt’s that time of the year again. Time to coordinate everyone’s schedules, make sure homework gets done and get everyone to bed at a decent time on school nights. It can be difficult to establish a new routine, including creating healthy habits for after-school snacking. 

We have lots of satisfying after-school snacks ideas to tide the kids over until dinner. Most are easy enough that even your little learners can throw them together – maybe with just a little help for the young ones.

Here are our 6 favorite after-school snack recipes:

  1. Frozen Pineapple Pops: What could be easier! Just like the name suggests, this recipe 
    uses a lollipop stick to freeze rings of pineapple into a sweet and juicy popsicle.

    Refreshing, fun and healthy! Find the recipe here

  2. Nutella and Fruit Bites: A little (or big!) smear of Nutella and a few pieces of your favorite fruit piled on top of Sea Salt Riceworks make this a crave-worthy snack for all ages. To. Die. For. Find the recipe here.

  3. Apple Sandwiches: There’s something about an unconventional sandwich that increases the fun! Try slicing an apple into a ring, load on some almond or peanut butter and granola then top with another apple ring. It makes the cutest snack! Find the recipe here.

  4. Trail mix: This snack time standby gets a refresh with this recipe that includes Riceworks, raisins, chocolate candy and more. It comes together fast and is a perfect hunger-buster to get your crew through until dinner. Find the recipe here.

  5. Salami and pickle bites: What goes better together than salami and pickles? Add in some cream cheese and Riceworks and you’ve just made a delicious crunchy snack that satisfies. Find the recipe here.

  6. White Chocolate Raspberries: Yep, exactly that. Push a white chocolate chip into a raspberry for a taste explosion that is sure to delight. And making it is half the fun! Mix things up and include some dark chocolate chips just for fun. Find the recipe here.
