Back to School: Afternoon Snacking with Apples


My kids are always hungry after school. Starving is more like it. It never fails on the drive home from the afternoon pick-up line, one of my kids is asking me what I have in the car for a snack. Hmmm….I admit, I quite often come unprepared.

I’m trying to change that. Our drive home is not long at all, but is much more peaceful if there is a snack awaiting the hungry mouths for the ride. That’s what drew me to these Homemade Apple Chips. Don’t they look scrumptious? And how about the idea of your kids snacking on Quinoa Apple muffins with a tall glass of milk when they get home from a long day of class?

Since we are approaching fall, and the season of the apple, I wanted to share with you Babble’s best apple-inspired snack recipes that will be sure to make your hungry kiddos very happy this school year.

Now tell us…what’s your favorite way of snacking with apples?
