Back to school time is officially here! Depending on where you live in the world, that might look really different this year. But now know what isn’t different? The fact that you and your kids still get the mid-afternoon munchies and need an after school snack!


These recipes are easy to make, free from common allergens, and taste amazing!


Little Cooking or No Cooking Snack Ideas


Snacks can be simple things and when I have a snack attack, these are some of the first things I reach for.


Veggies and hummus – Portion out snack sizes for even easier snacking.


Fruit- Apples, pears, bananas, strawberries, cherries, grapes, mangoes, anything you can think of! Mix them into a smoothie with some oat milk or eat them fresh. Fruit was always a free snack when I was growing up.


Square of dark chocolate – Okay, kids probably won’t reach for this one, but you need a snack too!
