The school year has officially begun, and your kids are undoubtedly starting to have summer withdrawals as their schedules become busier heading into fall. School is draining, even for your most dedicated classroom aficionados and especially for you as parents. During summer, food is usually available at the drop of a hat. When your child cries, “I’m hungry,” it’s only a matter of reaching in the pantry, your bag, or the back of your stroller to get them a filling snack. But during the school year, your children’s snacks are much more scheduled, and their only chance to have an actual snack is after the final bell rings.
At Kodiak Cakes, we know that snacks crafted with complex carbohydrates, fiber, and protein keep us feeling fuller for longer, and energized so we can concentrate on the task at hand. So, we’ve come up with three healthy after school snack options to help keep your kids full of energy as they head into an afternoon full of activities.
