by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Seven healthy after school snack ideas to make. Not only are they healthy but they are so yummy that kids won’t notice the fruits and veggies in them!

My kids would always seem to come home ravenous after school. I have shared heaps of after school snack ideas previously, but I particularly wanted to share some extra healthy snack ideas that are packed with fruits or veggies. These recipes are so delicious that even veggie hating kids won’t notice or mind that they contain fruits and veggies.healthy after school snack ideasCauliflower Popcorn – I ate a packaged version of this a few weeks ago, and it was so delicious that I wanted to try a homemade version. These are honestly so yummy that kids won’t even think about that they nibbling on a veggie. If you have an air-fryer at home this recipe would work so well in it!
