Healthy After School Snacks For Kids 2010-09-23 06:00:56

Editor’s note: The following is a guest post written by Annabel Karmel, the British children's chef and kiddie cookbook author. This week Annabel shares tips for feeding tots after school without spoiling their dinners.

When children come home from school they are usually starving. Most children tend to head straight for the chips or biscuits, as they are the only things to snack on, but these have high levels of salt, sugar and saturated fat in them, so if you have time try making some snacks yourself that we be more delicious and nutritious for them.

It is important to spend a little time making some healthy snacks they can eat when they get home, but that won’t spoil their appetites.

Keep the fruit bowl full; so that the children can help themselves, or you can always spend a few minutes cutting up a selection of fruit and put it on bamboo skewers or thin plastic straws. Raw vegetables or pita bread with a tasty dip or wraps also make good nutritious snacks and are easy for your children to help themselves to from the fridge.
