Hello OSSS readers, it’s Cynthia back again with a simple but effective tip for after school snacks.
After school snacking is something that must be dealt with quickly or it can turn into a temper tantrum in my house. My grandson comes home from school, and he is such a creature of habit. He heads straight upstairs, takes a shower then his next steps are directly to the refrigerator. And if there is nothing in the house for him, he turns into a little hungry bear.
So we decided to prepare some healthy after school snacks, that are easy for him to grab and eat. We also thought it would be best to get him involved in the process.
My grandson has major food allergies and most pre-made store bought snacks have food items in them that he is allergic to. Making the snacks is so much healthier than pre-processed foods. We made enough snack boxes for five days and a few extra smaller boxes for the days he is extra hungry.
