Kids after School Recipes, Kids after School Indian Snacks. It’s been a long and busy day for your kids at school and they come back home hungry and tired. While a hug from mom is the first pick-me-up tonic they want, they also look forward to something super yummy to eat. Something that’ll not just appease their hunger at the moment, but also re-energize them for the remaining activities of the day, be it sports classes, music classes, tuitions or just fun and play!

Mothers are always eager to appease their children, and are enthusiastic to prepare interesting kids after school snacks to serve them when they come back from school, but it is just natural to run out of ideas after a few days. And kids! They can sometimes be difficult to please. They get bored of having the same kind of food every day, and if you don’t get innovative, they crave for junk food – which is every mom’s nightmare!

If you eavesdrop on typical moms’ conversations, you will find that they often return to the topic of what they can cook for kids, be it for their tiffin dabba or to have kids after school snacks. Discovering recipes that are fun, easy and quick, yet loved by kids is every mom’s top priority.

Talk to your kids often about food, so that they are aware of the taste and health aspects of what they eat. They will also open up and share ideas about what they wish to eat or what they do not like. You can also have a healthy discussion on what is junk and what is not, instead of preaching to them.
