My kids are always hungry after school. I suppose most little ones are. After much consideration, my children usually choose a snack based on several different factors...first, how hungry are they? Second what's for dinner, and do they like it? Also, what time is after school practice or work. In other words, how much time do they have to actually sit down and eat? And lastly, what day of the week is it? The farther away from the Friday morning shopping trip it is, the less likely they will find anything they like at all! The usual choices for after school snacks are bananas or apples with peanut butter, yogurt, cereal, or granola bars. Once a week, however, Flynn and I like to surprise our school kids with a homemade treat. I remember how excited I was as a child, ok... even as a teenager, when I got home and smelled fresh baked cookies or cake! I knew my sweet mother had made something special for us.
