Quick After-School Bites

MISSION, KS--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2012) - (Family Features) Between carpool, homework, sports and other activities, it can be tough to fit in an after-school snack to hold the kids over until dinner. But with a few tricks up your sleeve, you can give them what they need in no time.

  • On-the-Go Goodie Bags - Make up a big batch of trail mix or seasoned air-popped popcorn. Divide into snack-sized zip top bags and you'll always have a snack at the ready.
  • Fruit on Demand - Keep a bowl of the kids' favorite fresh fruit out where they can see it and grab what they like. Or, freeze some grapes or blueberries and keep them in single-sized containers for a sweet and crunchy snack.
  • Cheesy Goodness - Make a quick batch of Salsa Ranch Dipping Sauce, then heat up a plate full of Mini Quesadillas from Farm Rich. They're quick and easy, but wholesome and delicious, too -- and this whole snack only takes a few minutes to make.
