Veggie After School Snack Recipes

Sweet Potato Chips — Use this sweet potato recipe to learn how to cook a sweet potato like a regular potato, only with tastier results. Unlike potato recipes, sweet potato recipes are healthier for you because they contain more nutrients.  (page 7)

Crunchy Zucchini SticksThese crunchy zucchini sticks are a great alternative to french fries. Bread and bake them and try them with a variety of dipping sauces, marinara or a ranch sauce would work well. A great way to get the kids to eat veggies for their after school snacks.  (page 10)

Oven French FriesA great easy to make snack or side dish for any dinner, these crunchy oven fries are wonderful. Who needs all that grease when these Oven French Fries are sure to curb any cravings you are having.   (page 8)


After School Snack Ideas with Cereal

Dried Fruit Oatmeal BarsThese dried fruit oatmeal bars feature unusual dried fruits, cranberries and pears. They are also quite sweet, but still much healthier than other popular after school snack recipes for candy and cookies!   (page 14)

Cheerio Nuggets For an easy and fun dessert, make these yummy nuggets of goodness using an old favorite - Cheerios! They make a great after-school snack for your kids...and all the others in the neighborhood.  (page 15)


Cheesy After School Snack Recipes

Samantha’s Afternoon QuesadillaFor a great, easy snack, take a few minutes and make this if you're near a stove, or pack it up and take it with you. Grains, lean protein, calcium and vegetables all make it into this compact snack.  (page 18)

After-School Pizza RollsWhether you're having a group over for the big game or preparing an after-school snack, everyone will love these delicious and easy appetizers! Impress your guests with homemade, not store-bought pizza rolls. (page 20)


Sweet After School Snack Ideas

Phyllis' Granny Smith Applesauce Squares I just put together a few easy-to-make, healthy recipes for back-to-school. This one substitutes applesauce for the large amount of butter and white sugar that traditionally makes up a dessert bar.  (page 24)

Chocolate Almond Pretzels — Chocolate Almond Pretzels are a special treat and taste great any time! This is a favorite chocolate covered pretzel recipe because of the terrific additional flavor from the almonds. Try it today and you'll see why everyone loves it!  (page 26)
