10 Favorite After School Snacks

10 Favorite After School Snacks - A collection of snack ideas to serve kid after school if you can keep from eating them yourself!
My kids start school next week after a busy day of learning and playing, I know they will be arriving home hungry. So I have gone through the Mess For Less chronicles and pulled up some our favorite after school snacks. The kids enjoyed making these family friendly recipes with me almost as much as they loved eating them. Some of these work well in lunch boxes the next day too!

1.Soft Pretzels Recipe – It’s the butter that makes these pretzels so yummy. No more trips to the mall for soft baked pretzels.
