9 After-School Snacks for Kids + Giveaway - The Nutritionist Reviews

9 After-School Snacks for Kids + Giveaway

This post was sponsored by Nabisco as part of an Integrated Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.
Adalyn is a huge snacker and all day long, says to me, "Mommy, I need more snacks!!". I am quite a snacker too so I make sure to stock our house with lots of snacks for the two of us. Overall, I try to keep our snacks quite nutritious but allow for some treats as well. Sometimes, snacks are as simple as plain carrot sticks or sometimes, it may involve a homemade baked good. It just depends on time, what we have on hand and what we feel like eating.

When Adalyn comes home from school, she is always hungry! Here are some snack options for kids that are fun and that they will love:

Frozen Yogurt Fruit Cups are so simple to make with just 3 ingredients and make the perfect high-protein filling snack that tastes like dessert! www.nutritionistreviews.com

1. Frozen Yogurt Fruit Cups

Frozen Yogurt Fruit Cups are so simple to make with just 3 ingredients and make the perfect high-protein filling snack that tastes like dessert! This is one of Adalyn's favorite snacks because she feels like she is eating an indulgent treat but they are nutritious.


2. TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks

For a treat, Adalyn has been loving these new-to-us snacks! They are cute and bear shaped and good for a snack on the road. She liked both varieties (chocolate and vanilla). She likes to dip them in vanilla Greek yogurt as well for a more filling snack.



They are made with milk, eggs and chocolate and have not high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors or colors.

They can be found at Walmart in the cookie/cracker aisle. I like packing a couple of these for a road trip where I like to have a variety of snacks on hand for Adalyn.
