Kids love coming home to a snack that is already prepared, and it helps them make better food choices!  Not every parent can be home cooking to have a snack read for their kids, which is why most of these ideas are things you can make ahead and have ready at any time!  Some of these snack ideas, kids can make themselves if you have the ingredients ready.

Frozen Yogurt Grapes

This is a perfect snack when it is hot outside and your kids come needing something cold and refreshing.  We don’t have a bus to our school, and so a lot of kids walk.  When its hot and they have either been walking or riding bikes, they need a cold snack to cool off with.  These are perfect and quick to make!
