5 Gluten Free After School Snacks Your Kid Will Love

Can you believe that school is getting ready to start? Some of my Georgia Mamas go back today, but Pookah has one more week until we start.

In the meantime, I’ve just started ( don’t judge me) buying school supplies, uniforms and thinking about lunches. Which made me think about snacks. Because I don’t know about your child, but when mine gets home from school he is STARVING! I’m always tempted to just buy a bag of chips on the way home, but really, I’m trying to be more mindful this year and make healthier gluten-free lunches and healthier gluten-free after school snacks.  Because all of it is brain food and I want my child to live his best life. Don’t you? But after school snacks don’t have to be rocket science. Simple, healthy and tastes good do go together. LOL.

So I thought I’d share some ideas I had for 5 EASY ( emphasis on that) Gluten Free After School Snacks that your Kid Will Love.

It's time for Back to School! Looking for easy healthy gluten-free after school snacks? Check out these 5 easy healthy ideas!

1.Apple Slices and Annie’s Gluten Free Chewy Granola Bars

2. Grapes and  Gluten Free Multi Grain Crackers

I like these crackers because they give the illusion of chips, but are baked! And Grapes are always fun for the kids!

3. Cheese Squares and Gluten Free Crackers

4. Hummus and Carrot Sticks

Kids love to dip. And what better to dip that something healthy like carrots? Also, if you child will eat it, celery works well with this too.

5. Fruit and Gluten Free Animal Cookies

There is something about Animal cookies that every child loves. And you can’t go wrong with strawberries and blueberries! Mix this one up with orange or apple slices or even sliced up melon!


These are just a few things to get you started with gluten-free after school snacks. And remember, all of the gluten-free snacks here can be substituted for non-gluten free ones!

A Few tips:

  • I like to make these the night before so they are ready when my son gets home from school. That way, he can just go the refrigerator and grab it. That way, I don’t have to stop working to fix him a snack. Plus, it promotes independence!
  • Some gluten free after school snacks can be ordered in bulk online with Amazon. Consider using it to keep your snacks ready in bulk so that you never run out!

So those were a few easy gluten free after school snacks, what do you guys give your kids?
