The 5 Best After School Snacks of All Time

By Lindsey Antis Aug 20, 2013

Convincing your kids to drink that green smoothie or have another salad after school probably won’t go over that well.  So, pulled together some A+ snacks that no kid or adult can resist.

1. Sour Cherry Yogurt Pops

Any kind of popsicle is fine by us, but we picked this healthy recipe because cherries are especially delicious this time of year.  It’s made with Greek yogurt, citrus, fruit and just a touch of honey (if you choose to add it).

2. Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Your kids love fries?  Don’t try to break them of the habit, just try this recipe.  With this baked, sweet potato version kids still get to eat their fave food without all the greasy, gooeyness moms try to avoid.

4. Sticky Sweet Popcorn

Every once and a while a sugar-filled snack is in order.  We can’t find one we like more than this caramel popcorn.  If you’re looking for a way to make it just a little healthy throw in a handful of walnuts and dried fruit.

5. Mango Fro-Yo

This mango frozen treat is great in a cone or a cup.   Then let the kids top it off with loads of fruit.  They won’t even suspect this is a healthy treat.
