Easy Snack Ideas

Not too long ago, I made a list of easy lunch ideas for those days when we're all thinking-challenged and stuck on pb&j.  After that I had a request for some ideas for those mid-afternoon snacks.  Since I love my friend, and I love easy food, I thought I'd comply.  I'm like that.  So here are some easy snacks that we like to have at our house.  Some of them also double as our lunch or breakfast ideas -- just usually not on the same day!  Eat up!  (And  please feel free to share what you do when the hunger monster strikes at your place.)

yogurt and granola
apples and peanut butter or honey
fruit (especially strawberries, grapes and bananas) and marshmallow creme dip
trail mix
chex mix
vanilla wafers and peanut butter
popcorn with parmesan cheese sprinkled on it (or plain)
cheese sticks
whole grain crackers with topping of choice (peanut butter, cheese, cream cheese or jelly)
quick breads (banana, pumpkin, sweet potato)
fruit kabobs
tortilla chips with shredded cheese or salsa
soft pretzels
dill pickle spears
graham crackers with icing
dried fruit
ants on a log
popsicles (we like Edy's)

I also found some cute snack ideas from Family Fun.  So if you're feeling creative, take a gander at those.

I love this list - and commented earlier... I am now featuring it and think it would be a perfect fit in the Genius Tips contest!
