Ahoy there, parents of hungry little ones! Are you tired of the same old boring after-school snacks? Do you need some fresh ideas to satisfy your kids’ hunger pangs and keep them going until dinner time? Look no further because these three healthy after-school snack ideas are sure to be a hit with your little ones!
- Yoghurt Parfait
A classic yoghurt parfait is always a great option for a healthy after-school snack. Simply layer plain or vanilla yoghurt with fresh berries or other fruit, granola, and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup for a touch of sweetness. You can also mix in some SlurrpFarm’s porridge mix for added nutrition and texture.
For an added twist, try making a parfait bar for your kids to customise their own parfait creations. Set out bowls of various toppings like nuts, dried fruit, coconut flakes, and chocolate chips, and let your kids have fun mixing and matching their favourite flavours and textures.
- Energy Balls
Making homemade energy balls with baby food online is a fun and easy way to provide your little ones with a healthy and tasty snack. Not only are they simple to make, but they’re also customisable to suit your child’s taste preferences. Start by gathering ingredients such as rolled oats, nut butter, dried fruits, nuts, and chocolate chips. Then, for an extra nutritional boost, add some baby food online. SlurrpFarm’s instant rice cereal for babies is a fantastic option, thanks to its high iron content and cognitive development benefits. To make the energy balls, combine the rolled oats and nut butter in a bowl. Next, mix in the baby food online and any other desired ingredients, such as dried fruit, nuts, or chocolate chips. Roll the mixture into small balls, and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Pop the sheet in the fridge for an hour to allow the balls to set.
Once the energy balls have been set, they can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. These make for a perfect snack for kids to grab on the go or as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Plus, they’re a great way to sneak some extra nutrition into your child’s diet without them even noticing.
- Veggie Hummus Wraps
Hummus is a great source of protein and fibre, making it an ideal snack to keep kids feeling full and satisfied until dinner. To make a veggie hummus wrap, spread some hummus on a whole-grain tortilla or wrap. Then, add a variety of colourful veggies, such as shredded carrots, sliced cucumber, and bell pepper. Roll up the tortilla and slice it into bite-sized pieces. This snack is not only healthy and delicious but also visually appealing, making it more likely that your child will want to eat it. Plus, it’s a great way to sneak some extra veggies into their diet.
You can also add a twist to this recipe by adding a sprinkle of Slurrp Farm’s Ragi Powder to the hummus for some added nutrition. Ragi Powder is rich in calcium and can help support your child’s bone health. It’s a perfect addition to this already healthy snack!
By incorporating these three healthy after-school snack ideas into your child’s routine, you can ensure that they’re getting the nutrients they need to support their growth and development. Whether you’re looking for a quick and easy yoghurt parfait, a homemade energy ball, or a fun and creative apple nacho, these snacks are sure to be a hit with your little ones. You can also buy healthy and easy-to-make baby food online, like porridge mix, ragi powder, pancake mix and much more!
