The after-school snack attack can be a tricky one. You want to satiate your child's hunger after a long day at school, but you don't want to spoil their appetite. Rather than hand over a bowl of artificially colored crackers or a candy bar, we've turned to a panel of top-notch chefs to share their favorite postschool snacks in our new Snack Attack series. First up is one of our favorite mom chefs, Catherine McCord, founder of Weelicious.
Your kids have just finished up a busy day at school, and now they're ravenous. While your pantry may be filled with immediate fixes, Weelicious's Catherine McCord has more than a few healthy recipes up her sleeve that will fill them up for now, but still leave them hungry for dinner a short while later. With two school-age tots of her own, Catherine's become a master of after-school snacks, several of which she included in her Weelicious: One Family. One Meal. ($28) cookbook. Today, she's sharing two of her favorites with us — we're pretty sure they'll end up being your kids' favorites, too!
