Try these no-cook options
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- You want your kids to eat something healthy after school, but there's no time to cook something nutritious.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests these no-cook healthy snacks:
- Make a frozen treat by dipping a peeled banana in yogurt, rolling it in crushed cereal and then freezing.
- Shake up a fruit smoothie by combining a half cup each of low-fat yogurt and chilled 100 percent fruit juice in a container with a lid, and then shake.
- Use fun-shaped cookie cutters (like dinosaurs, stars or hearts) to cut out sandwiches made with lean meat, low-fat cheese and whole-grain bread.
- In a bowl, mix peanut butter with cornflakes or bran flakes, and then roll into balls. Roll the balls in crushed graham crackers to make tasty peanut butter balls.
