After School Snack Board

Snack board filled with healthy items

If your kids are hungry between classes while distance learning or when they get home from school, this easy-to-assemble snack board will help keep hunger at bay!

My girls just finished week 2 of at-home learning, which will be our reality for at least the first quarter of this new school year. My oldest started high school this year and has back-to-back classes pretty much all day, while my youngest has morning and afternoon blocks for learning.

Kids eating snack board

After school ends, and before we jet off to their socially-distanced tennis lessons, a hearty snack is always needed to help fuel them through practice and hold them over until dinner.

I’m known on our team as queen of the snack boards, and they’re usually my go-to for the girls. We’re not talking about anything complicated, things don’t need to be perfect.

Fruits, veggies, cheese, meats and crackers that we already have prepped in the fridge are all great additions for any snack board.

For this board, we have a few of these Chickpea Salad Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers, veggies (celery, tomatoes and carrots) with Ranch for dipping, SunGold kiwi, mandarins, granola and chocolate chips (Charli’s favorite).
