Since the kids are all out of school, back to school doesn’t really affect me any longer. They do occasionally take snacks to work, and they are always looking for snacks to eat when they’re home. In an effort to keep my grocery bill from exploding, I’ve been trying to offer more homemade snacks. I basically have six adults living here now, and that means we go through a lot of food.

Healthy Snacks for School
In an effort to keep my grocery bill from exploding, I’ve been trying to offer more homemade snacks. I basically have six adults living here now, and that means we go through a lot of food.
Have you ever taken a look at the snacks geared toward children: blue applesauce, neon gummy like “fruit” chews, yogurt with candy in it. I don’t think so. While I know they can buy these things on their own, there is absolutely no way that I’m bringing them into the house myself.
I always have a big bowl of fruit in the refrigerator for them to choose from. I also keep a selection of baby carrots, fresh vegetables, cheese, and organic crackers.
