With school soon to be back in session, there are a few things that I look forward to.
For one, I get my house back (in honesty, this is probably more exciting than you could imagine), and secondly, this means another year of coming up with creative lunches and snacks for my kids.
The second is important to me for a variety of reasons. My oldest will be starting high school, and while I love that she loves the little notes I leave and smiley face sandwiches, I know it won’t last forever. This means that younger children who will be in 5th grade, Kindergarten, and Pre-K, will get to experience this for a least several more years. So it’s a major win for me.
Why I put extra love into snack time
I have never really looked at school as just a chore. For me, it sets the foundation for a lot of habits that may not come to light until we are adults. Even if my kids have had a rough day at school, I want them to know that when they walk in the door, mom is there to greet them and hopefully make things better!
Now, I know that I can’t (and won’t) always be there to smooth over their day, but as a kid, there was no better memory than my mom being home after school and having whipped up an amazing afterschool snack!
These are the same memories that I am hoping to make with my own children.
One of my kids favorite after-school snacks is Lance Toast Chee Peanut Butter Crackers.
Toast Chee is made with real peanut butter, sandwiched between two cheesy baked crackers, and is packed with real big flavor! With 5g of protein, it’s our favorite after-school snack, since it fills the kids up, and will hold them over until dinner!
For over 100 years, Lance has been making sandwiches with two awesome crackers and delicious spreads in between! The real peanut butter or real cheese contain up to 5 grams of protein, with NO high fructose corn syrup! There is a wide range of sandwich crackers to choose from that are sure to satisfy your family!
They are also perfect for the kid’s school lunches, due to the convenient individual snack packs!
Another favorite is the Lance PB& J Toasty Sandwich Crackers. Like the traditional Peanut Butter Crackers, these make a great afterschool snack with a twist! It’s like a peanut butter and Jelly Sandwich in a cracker!
Andrew’s Cracker Tower
My 10-year-old has been making his cracker tower afterschool daily since he was in pre-k. I never imagined his love for this fun and imaginative treat would still be going on almost six years later! Add in two younger sisters who have since joined the family, these cracker towers are now a favorite snack time treat for all of the kids!
Needed: 1 package of Lance Toast Chee Peanut Butter Crackers
- Gently take apart each cracker in the pack.
- Stack the desired amount of crackers on top of one another. For my younger girls, they create “mini” towers, which only have 3 levels on it.
