I haven’t participated in the last couple of Homeschool Memoirs from The Homeschool Post because I haven’t had anything noteworthy to add for the last two topics. However, my kids snack from the time they get up until the time they go to bed, so I guess I have some experience in the area of snacking. Some of our favorites include:

  • Raw carrots with dressing (it’s amazing what just slicing up a carrot does to make it more appealing)
  • fruit (grapes and apples are favorites)
  • Rice Krispy treats
  • Popcorn (I can’t tell you how much of this we go through)
  • Leftovers (My kids like meals for snacks. I’ll frequently save little bits of leftovers that don’t appear to be enough for anything. Somebody will eat them!)
  • Trail mix (raisins, chocolate chips, dried apple, mixed nuts…yum!)
  • Applesauce
  • My sister’s idea — the “dipper” shaped graham crackers, dipped in peanut butter, then in raisins
  • Chips and dip (There wasn’t a disclaimer that they had to be healthy snacks, was there?)
  • Black olive
  • Grape or cherry tomatoes
  • Homemade “Chex” mix — We like to mix Goldfish, Cheerios and pretzels. That’s it. You don’t even have to bake it and the kids love it.
  • Rice pudding (okay, I’m the only one who likes it)
  • Pudding or Jell-O in individual snack cups
  • Sandwiches (Yes, I have a son who considers a sandwich to be a snack)
  • Tuna, cheese, or pimento cheese and crackers
  • Dry cereal
  • Sunflower seeds and/or nuts

I’m sure I’ll think of something else, but that’s all that comes to mind right now. What does your crew like to snack on?
