Savvy After School Snacks

I can remember as a child coming home from school every day to a snack prepared lovingly by my mother.  It was never fancy.  Almost always it was fresh cut apple wedges or oranges fanned out on a 70's style melamine plate :-).  Regardless of the cost, the mere fact that she cared enough to cut up an apple made truly feel loved through this simple act of kindness.  As a mother with children of my own, I try to make sure my kids have a healthy afterschool snack waiting for them when they get off the bus.  It's a tradition worth keeping!

"Gobble Me Up" After School Snack
As I was browsing through Family Fun this week, I saw a great Thanksgiving Snack that I'm making for my kids this week.  It's snack love + Infinity King's X (that mean's "it's the best and you can't top it", in my family).


Instructions:

  1. Arrange apple and clementine or navel orange slices on a plate as shown, and lay a cored pear half on top.
  2. Use scissors to snip small triangles from an orange slice and tuck them under the pear to form the feet.
  3. Finally, use peanut butter to attach mini chocolate chip eyes, a nut beak, and a dried cranberry snood.
Try this savvy healthy afterschool snack for your kids this week and share the love!
