QMy children always arrive home from school with a hearty appetite. Instead of the unhealthy quick-grabs like cookies or chips, I would like to offer them something more nutritious, but also simple to make and take on the go. We sometimes have only 10 minutes at home before we need to go to after-school activities. Any ideas?
It's so easy nowadays to give up on nutrition for convenience, so I really admire your desire to want something healthy for your kids. Greet them in the kitchen with something fresh from the oven -- Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins are moist, delicious and have fiber, too -- or have them help skewer up Fruit 'N Cheese Dippers. Crunchy Taco Mix is made with only three ingredients and is as tasty as it is portable.
Keep up the great work. By giving them healthy, homemade snacks now you're helping to establish lifelong positive eating habits. And don't forget that moms need snacks, too. How else are you going to keep up with your kids?
