Fix Me A Snack

A blog created by a mom who got sick of feeding her kids crackers and ice cream

Seven or eight years into being a stay-at-home mom and I’m finally gearing up to serve up some genuine after-school snacks to my youngins. In the past, I’ve been pretty lame about after-school snacks. But I’ve resolved to redeem myself occasionally this year by throwing the wee people in my household a surprise treat every now and again. After much scouring of the internet, these are some of the best looking after-school snack recipes I could find. Some are healthier than others. I’d like to try them all.
