“Can I have a snack?” Two Healthy Options
By Melanie Beasley, RD, LD

Every year around this time parents everywhere begin thinking about back to school, the supplies, the new schedules and … food. Food for a fast breakfast. Food to pack for lunch. Food to pack for snacks. Food for snacks once the kiddos get home and the list goes on.
Quick after-school snacks are a favorite around here. Last year we came up with three after-school smoothie recipes that were a huge hit. This year we’re back with two new recipes that we know (from experience) the whole family will enjoy. I created both of these recipes when my own girls (now well out of school and getting married!) were young. I hope your children enjoy making them with you, or enjoy eating the final product for years to come.
Of course, soon after the snacks are consumed, it’s time to answer the question of “What’s for dinner?”
If you’re overwhelmed about feeding yourself well, let alone a full family, DO NOT FRET. That’s why I am here, along with my fellow nutritionists and dietitians. Consider scheduling a phone, video visit, or in-person nutrition consultation so we can help you learn what works for your unique scenarios.
