When the school bell rings, children are frequently tired, hungry, and bored. They need something quick to snack on and something to keep them occupied, especially if they’re out but it’s not quite time for you to pick them up yet.
For many kids, snacks mean the world to them. The common picture might be your child roaming around the snacking aisle filled with chips and healthy parents like us would not want to be like “Eat this, not that” when they grab something unhealthy. However, admittedly it is quite hard to find the “real healthy” snacking options as all of them seem to be marketed as healthy and nutritious enough.
Plus, for some busy parents we don’t actually have enough time to prepare healthy options like mini pizzas or cheesy cauliflowers in the morning just to see them turn cold and inedible.
