OKby now almost every student is back in school; and so the task of feeding them after school begins. Whether a parent is home or not kids are ready to eat as soon as they get off the bus. Finding decent tasting and sort of good for you snacks can be difficult, so here I am to the rescue with a couple of my kicked up favorites along with a few tips to help you along the way.Tip one: anything you can make at home from real food is better than anything your kids will pull out of a frozen package, can or bag.Tip two: utilize leftover foods to make after school snacks such as chicken in quesadillas that just can be warmed. Or leftover rice with stirred in vegetables drizzled with a little hosin sauce and sprinkled with sesame seeds. Tip three: have after school snacks pre-packed in ready to be reheated containers. Stage separate items in baggies and leave instructions as how to assemble and reheat.Tip four: encourage your kids to be creative using fresh vegetables, fruits and leftover proteins to create their own after school snacks. For this killer tuna melt have the bread toasted, tuna mixed and cheese grated. When the kids get home simple have them build by piling the tuna on the bread, topping with cheese and warming through in the oven. The mini burritos are even easier. Preheat the oven, place them on a lightly oiled sheet tray and bake until golden and warmed through. These burritos are one of those items where left over rice and chicken can be turned into an after school snack that your kids will be asking for again and again.
