The Best Snacks for After School

This post is sponsored by on behalf of Single Edition Media.

I don’t know about your kids, but when Abbie gets home from preschool sometimes, her mood can be unpredictable. If she hasn’t had a snack recently – she is cranky. I get it – I’m pretty cranky when I haven’t had a snack recently too! She often gets a snack to tide her over while I’m cooking dinner in the evenings, so I wanted to share some of our favorite ideas for after school snacks!

Green Giant Veggie Tots


I swear, when Abbie turned three, she started to shun every vegetable, even though she’d been eating them for years. She still loves her fries though, so I love that these veggie tots are an easy alternative! They’re an easy way to get your kids to eat something healthy… without them knowing just how healthy they are! They’re quick to make and an easy snack – you can find them at and head here to grab a coupon for $1 off!

Advance Pierre PB Jamwich

Abbie could probably live off of peanut butter. She LOVES it, but it’s off-limits at her preschool since it’s nut-free. That makes these the perfect after school snack for her – easy, no prep for mom, and crustless – just the way kids always seem to want it. They come with either grape or strawberry jelly, but we’re big fans of the original grape around here. Head here to grab yours!

Sensible Portions Garden Veggie Straws

Want to know something silly about these veggie straws? For the longest time, Abbie called them…. hamburgers. I have zero idea where she got it from, but it was the funniest thing! We love veggie straws around here and my husband has been known to take them for himself! I love that they’re made from wholesome, non-GMO ingredients – and the rest of my family just loves that they come in Zesty Ranch. (They also come in Sea Salt flavor, but the Ranch always go first in my house!) Head here to grab some for yourself!

Entenmann’s® Little Bites® Chocolate Chip Muffins

I have been eating Entenmann’s products for as long as I can remember – my dad was a bread distributor as a kid, so he would trade extra bread with the Entenmann’s distributor whenever he got the chance! I love that these muffins are a sweet treat that has no trans fat or high fructose corn syrup. I love that they’re preportioned, or I would probably end up eating a lot more than just one package! Grab yours here!

Sour Punch: Real Rainbow Straws

I mean, we all need a little candy once in a while, right? Candy is a rare occurance in my house, so I’m pretty picky about the candy I let Abbie have. I love that these are made with natural flavors and no high fructose corn syrup. Head here to grab yours – and they’ll soon be available on Amazon!


Honestly, most of the time I grab these for myself – because moms need a snack at the end of a long day too! I love that these bars are chock full of real ingredients – egg whites, fruit, and nuts – and come in a great variety of flavors. They’re also dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free, and have no added sugar. My favorite is the chocolate chip! Get yours here and use code BabbleBoxx15 for 15% off your first order!

Fruit Shoot – Fruit Punch Flavor

I love that these are made with real fruit juice and no high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors, unlike so many of the other fruit drinks out there. It’s a little bit of a sweet ending to a busy day! Head here to grab yours!
