Kids are always snacking. It helps the budget if you’ve got some good cheap, seasonal snacks to provide them with.

It would seem that kids are always hungry: breakfast, 2nd breakfast, elevensies, luncheon…. Oh wait! Is that hobbits or kids?

Same thing, really.

While three (or more) good meals are a great base, a healthy afternoon snack can be just the ticket to help kids — and adults — make it through the 3:00 slump.

As our family moves away from a steady diet of processed foods toward more wholesome fare, I’ve been looking for ways to provide snacks without resorting to boxed crackers, gummies, and other pre-packaged foods. At the same time, I need to serve foods that won’t break the bank!

Can healthy eating be budget friendly? You betcha!

  1. I just pulled a chedder and pear pie out of the oven, but won’t get to eat it. I found some pears at 40c/lb today.
    My 9&11 year boys are always eating since they can make their own popcorn that’s always a winning snack. They must be growing though because this working mom is having a hard time keeping snacks in the house.

    We recently started homeschooling part-time, and it seems as if it has turned my girls into hobbits. They’re hungry all of the time. I really need to think thru some different snacks and plan them ahead-of-time. I just bought a bag of pears so maybe we’ll give that a try later this week.
