I am always on the lookout for the best after school snacks. When my daughter gets home from school she is insanely hungry. All of that learning and playing takes a lot out of their bodies. I look for the best after school snacks that offer good nutrition and will keep her belly full until dinner.

Banana Pops

You have got to try this one. First you want to cut each banana in half. Place a skewer or popsicle stick in each one and freeze them. After they are frozen melt down a little bit of chocolate. Dip your frozen banana in the chocolate and a freeze again. Your kids are sure to love this and so will you.


English Muffin Pizza

Who doesn’t love pizza? Exactly. That is why I think this is one of the best after school snacks ever. They are so simple to make. First you open up an English muffin. Spread a little pizza sauce on each half. Top with a couple pepperonis and cheese. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees until the cheese is melted.


Yogurt Parfait

Yogurt is great, but can get a little boring. Yogurt parfait steps it up a notch making it worthy of the title “best after school snack.” Layer yogurt, granola, and fruit in a cup. I like to add a couple of chocolate chips for an added treat.


Fruit Kabob

Fruit kabobs are just a fun way to eat your favorite fruit. You can prepare them early and keep them fresh in it the fridge until the kids get home. I like to use grapes, strawberries, cantaloupe, honey dew, and watermelon on my fruit kabobs. My daughter will tell you that these are one of the best after school snacks.


Ants on a Log

Such a classic snack isn’t it? But kids still think Ants on a Log is one of the best after school snacks. If you have never made it before you prepare stick of celery with peanut butter down the middle and then place a few raisins on top of the peanut butter. The celery and peanut butter becomes the log and the raisins are the ants.



Air popped popcorn is a great after school snack. It is simple, healthy and delicious. Kids love it and it’s so much better than eating chips. I always keep popcorn on hand for a quick after school snack.



Smoothies are perfect for a hot day and make one of the best after school snacks. You can mix it anyway you like. I do it by blending a cup of fruit, a cup of milk, and a cup of plain yogurt. This makes enough for my daughter and I to both get a glass.


Pita and Hummus

Hummus isn’t just for grown ups. Kids really like this stuff too. The reason why I think humus and pita chips makes one of the best after school snacks is because it’s healthy, delicious and very filling.

Try out some of these best after school snacks with your kids and tell me what they think. Also let me know what you serve your kids when the get home from school. I’m always looking for new ideas.
