After School Snacks!
If your child is anything like mine, they come home from school starving! This is a perfect time to give them a nice treat that also provides a little boost of nutrition for their little bodies. My mom often welcomed me home with my favorite chocolate chip cookies! I know now as a mother, that she missed us during the day so she wanted to show us her love with her cookies. I do the same thing for my babies!
Here are some of my favorite after school treats:
-banana with peanut butter and chocolate chips
Sometimes my daughter is in the mood for a small meal when she gets home. Here are some of her favorites:
–white bean tuna salad served on flaxers (flax seed crackers)
–peanut sauce as a dip for veggies (usually broccoli because she loves how much more sauce she gets per bite!)
-potstickers from Trader Joes dipped in the peanut sauce
–cucumber boats-I cut a cucumber in a half long ways and spread hummus all over the top
