A child’s hanger after school is no laughing matter…we’ve forgotten snacks at our peril! And it is totally understandable – a day at school is demanding physically, emotionally and mentally, all of which requires a lot of energy.

  • Nuts and seeds
  • Pitta bread with hummus and carrot, or tzatziki and cucumber
