8 Gluten-Free After School Snacks

August 6, 2014

Quick and healthy after school snacks are a must have for any kid.  These gluten-free snacks help curb your child's pre-meal munchies before dinner is ready.  

When considering serving snacks to your child in between meals, it's best to learn towards foods that are low in fat and sugar. In other words, instead of offering junk food, help your child select items that are delicious and nutritious.  

Stick with fruits such as apple slices or banana dipped in peanut butter, sweet and salty homemade nut mixes, and cheese and gluten-free pretzels.  Offer goodies like chocolate, chips and ice cream as a treat or on the weekends.
