School is out and the kids will be home any minute. Be prepared for the 3 p.m. snack attack with these easy ideas.
Whole-Wheat Pizza Bagel
Who doesn’t like pizza? Make it a healthier alternative by using half a whole-wheat bagel. Spread on marinara and low-fat mozzarella cheese for a deliciously hearty snack that will keep the kids satisfied.
Spread low-fat refried beans onto a whole-wheat tortilla. Sprinkle with low-fat mixed cheese and bake, and serve with shredded lettuce, salsa, and guacamole. It’s a simple, festive, and delicious snack the kids will crave.
Your children will love Yoplait Trix yogurts, with two colors in every cup and creatively fruity flavors like Cotton Candy, Triple Cherry, and Strawberry Banana Bash. And Mom will like that there’s no artificial color, artificial flavor, or high fructose corn syrup.
Homemade Trail Mix
Make your own salty-sweet trail mix with protein-packed nuts, granola, dark chocolate, cereal, and popcorn. It’s the ideal snack for moms and kids on the go.
