When the kids come home after school, they usually want something to snack on to hold them over until dinner. The best snacks are quick, satisfying, and easy to assemble. You can make a few snacks ahead of time to have ready for the afternoon, and for stashing in lunch boxes, or go for snacks that are simple enough to whip up on demand. An added benefit to preparing your own snacks at home is that you control the sugar quantities that go nto each treat. And if your child has any food allergies or a food intolerance, you can better cater to your child's needs with DIY snacks.
