Do your kids ever get home after school and tell you there’s nothing to eat? My kids walk in the door starving and then tell me this all the time. Sometimes they do this right after I just unloaded a million grocery bags. This is when I break out some snacks they don’t often think about.
Our after school time is spent at the pool. Two of my kids are on swim teams and my youngest is working her way through swim lessons. She just recently had a #ShareTheSuper moment when she conquered her fear of pool slides. You can share your kids super moments, too, and win! Scroll to the bottom to find out how!
Today, I’ve got some delicious better-for-you snack ideas that your kids will love, and they’re quick to make before heading out the door for after school activities.
1. Hot Buttered Whole Grain Cereal – this is one of our favorites and takes just minutes to whip up.
2. Cotton Candy Yogurt Smoothies – you can make these smoothies with any yogurt, but cotton candy is a favorite yogurt flavor around here.
3. Del Monte Fruit & Veggie Fusions – Del Monte Fruit & Veggie Fusions combine the great taste of Del Monte fruit cups with the power of vegetables. My kids love these. My 5 year old’s absolute favorite is Mango Peach.
There are three varieties:
- Mango Peach
- Cherry Fruit Trio
- Apple Pear Watermelon
Each fruit cup has lightly sweetened vegetable and fruit juice for a delicious snack to bring out the super in the whole family. Del Monte Fruit & Veggie Fusions are the perfect snack to energize kids for all their super moments.
The Del Monte Fusions include one combined serving of fruit and veggies in every cup. Plus, there’s no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial colors or flavors, which make for a delicious and nutritious Fusion!
4. Roasted Peach Caramel Bites – you can roast any kind of fruit from peaches to berries for this snack, and the kids will love it!
5. Microwaved Baked Apples – if your kids love apple pie or apple dumplings, then they might just love this fruity treat. It’s quick to make in the microwave.
Super moments can be all kinds of things from an A+ on the spelling test to going down the pool slide!

That hot-buttered cereal looks delicious. I’ve never thought to do this – amazing! Looks like your kids are having a blast with their swim teams/lessons.
Love these snack ideas! That cotton candy smoothie would be right up my alley, too!
Oh wow those peach bites look good. I love peaches. The kids look like they are enjoying the swimming. 🙂
I have to admit I was definitely guilty of saying there was no food in our house when in fact our cabinets were bursting when I was growing up. If I had these snacks to munch on I would be one happy kid though! I especially like the sound of the roasted peach caramel bites yum!
Lots of great snack ideas! My hubby gets home 2 hours after my boys so it can be tough getting them to hold off until dinner time. I always try to give them tasty healthy snack to hold them over 🙂
These are the best ideas! We have to try those fusions! I haven’t tried them yet!
Those all look so good! Especially the buttered cereal and cotton candy yogurt one. Can I just have you make all my snacks for me too? :).
Haha. I’m always thinking the same, that there’s nothing to eat, while starring at a full refrigerator. I really need to get a few fast snack ideas. I loved the microwaved apple.
Yum! These all sound so good, I would eat them for my everyday snacks, too!
Even though my daughter is 25 now this post will be very useful to me. I need to start eating healthier snacks myself and that baked apple looks really tasty!
Delicious, all of them. With that being said, I guess they can also be named as snacks for adults too 🙂
Great snack ideas! Even big kids needs too suggestions!
That cotton candy smoothie sounds yummy! My kids love smoothies…I usually make them for after-school snacks when the weather is warm!
I love these ideas for healthy after school snacks. I think I’d like that cotton candy smoothie myself!
