50 cheap after school snack ideas, most under $1.00. Click through for all 50 ideas.

I don’t have children, but if I did, I imagine I would love making them after-school snacks.

The perfect after-school snack is many things:

  • Quick and easy
  • Nourishing
  • Not too heavy (you don’t want to spoil dinner!)

Most importantly, it has to be low-cost. An after-school snack is not a meal, so it shouldn’t cost as much.

So here they are: 50 cheap after-school/afternoon snacks that will please your kid’s palate, whether he or she is in daycare, preschool or school. Feel free to add your own ideas below.
