4 ways to make after school snack time more fun

I’m always on the hunt for healthy yet tasty vittles for my kids when their tummies get rumbly between meals and ways to get them interested in helping in the preparation of said food. This month I’ve found four ways to make snack time more fun and healthy for everyone.

PB Crave Peanut Butters

Ready to give your beloved peanut butter a boost of yummy fun? Let me introduce you to my family’s new obsession. PB Crave is made with natural peanut butter, honey, all-natural ingredients and has zero syrups, including high-fructose corn syrup. DELICIOUS! It comes in amazing flavors, such as Razzle Dazzle, Cookie Nookie, CoCo Bananas, and Choco Choco, that are all simply divine atop apples, celery or a giant spoon.

Love Grown Oat Clusters

One of my kids’ favorite fast snacks is yogurt topped with granola. It’s also makes a quick breakfast on manic school-day mornings. Love Grown Foods’ line of oat clusters has given our yogurt a crunchy new friend that’s non-GMO and packed with natural protein, fiber and only pure ingredients. It’s subtly sweet and comes in big clusters that make it perfect to eat right out of the bag. My favorites are the cocoa goodness and sweet cranberry pecan. Definitely beats chips or pretzels as a fast after-school snack.
