These are all great, and quick, snack ideas!! I love putting cheese and apple on crackers, it’s so simple yet so delicious!
Perfect timing! We just finished our first full week of school and my son’s schedule is different every day and I need different, easy, delicious, fun snacks for after school! otherwise I have to give him dinner at 4 and that is not good. Thanks for these great ideas!

These all sounds like great snack ideas. I will have to make the ham and cheese pretzel roll ups for my son.
I need to be more creative for fun, healthy snack options for after-school. Now that I work Full time I am trying to find that balance and how to be more proactive with snack options! I love your ideas!
They all looks really great. My favorite would be those veggie bites but I know how much the rest of my family would love the pretzel rolls. These are really creative ideas.

They all look great but I love apples and cheese together so the apple cheese crackers would be my choice. Cheese is always a snack option in my house but I am picky with the cheese we eat and Arla Dofino sounds like a brand I can feel good about.
These are so cute and Quick …. gotta love quick and easy … the first words out of my grandkids mouth as soon as they open the door is I want a snack … these fit the bill with out throwing grandma into a fit 🙂
