Snack time with kids- wholesome, scrumptious snacks that are a favorite with kids and adults alike!

Snacks play such an important role in our lives, don’t they? Snack time after the kids got home from school was especially dear to me. They would come home eager to share their day with me and over snacks and milk, we would sit and chat about the fun stuff and also about their concerns and stress.

When my kids were very little, I was lucky to have a very sweet elderly neighbor whose son was a pilot and visited her regularly. She told me that he always remembered the snack time he had with his mom after school. Her advice to me was that years fly by so fast, so treasure that snack time with your kids.

It is vacation week here and summer vacation in India. We always think of snacks for car trips and outings, don’t we?  For a foodie like me, those snacks double the fun at all times 🙂 These recipes are easy to make and taste just as authentic with the shortcuts, are healthier and absolutely moreish!

So here is a compilation of some wholesome snacks that kids and adults both love.
