Ever since we were inspired to eat a little more like the French, I’ve been looking for snacks that aren’t so heavy to offer to the kids when they come home from school. I’m convinced that my children often confuse hunger for thirst (with boys not drinking much from their water bottles during the day?), and I’ve been trying to offer thirst quenchers in lieu of food when it comes to their after-school snacks.
Our neighbourhood coffee shops offer frozen hot chocolates this time of the year, and while tasty and refreshing, they are also extremely pricey at almost five dollars a pop. This makes them more of a luxury treat than an afternoon snack, but like most things we enjoy eating out, I’ve taken to making my own version at home.
The kids are happy with their sweet after-school refreshment, and I’m thrilled to be saving money while simultaneously keeping their drinks as healthy as possible.
What are you making for after-school snacks these days?
