Back To School

Well next week is back to school time for my son,
he's going into the 6th grade. Woohoo
My son, like most kids say they are "starving" when they get home,
so here are some ideas for some snacks I'd like to share.

Frozen bananas.
 Cut a banana in half and put each half on a Popsicle stick. Roll the halves in yogurt and then coat with a crispy rice cereal or granola and freeze. Your child can enjoy them frozen or slightly thawed.

 Quick pizza.  
Drizzle tomato sauce and sprinkle low-fat mozzarella cheese on a whole-grain English muffin half. Sprinkle with seasonings, such as oregano and garlic. Heat in the toaster oven until the cheese melts.

 Snack kabob.  
Cut up cubes of low-fat cheese and place them with grapes on mini pretzel sticks.

Ants On A Log 
 Clery sticks spread with peanut butter or low-fat cream cheese and topped with raisins.

 Mexican treat.  
Take a corn tortilla and sprinkle with low-fat, grated Monterey Jack cheese. Fold it in half and then microwave for 20 seconds. Top with mild salsa.

 Blend low-fat milk or yogurt with a banana or strawberries and some ice for a low-fat milkshake.
