No matter what they had for lunch, my kids were always starving when they got home from school! They work up quite an appetite in the playground!
Here are some fun ideas to keep them from rummaging through the fridge for the first unhealthy snack they lay their hands on!
If they're the crafty sort, they may enjoy expressing their own creativity with food art! A few veggies, cookie cutters and an imagination is all you need for this edible little project!
Zengarry Flower Garden Art
Spread your favourite Zengarry cashew cheese on bread (I used Sun-dried Tomato and Basil and Garlic and Fine Herbs here). Cut into fun shapes with cookie cutters (or free-hand if you're more the Picasso type). Grab some leftover veggies from last night's supper.... asparagus, green beans, sweet potato wedges, anything colourful. I used leftover asparagus and some basil leaves. A square white plate makes the perfect creative canvas!!
For the more rugged crowd try teddy bear or car cut out shapes or make different shapes or even letters!
Veggie Garden and Ranch Dip
Make veggies and dip more enticing with a few strokes of the knife and a couple of toothpicks!! Serve up a flower garden along side Zengarry Ranch Dip. You know that everything is more fun on a stick!!

For heartier appetites before dance class or soccer, these Falafel sliders hit just the right spot! Beans will fill them up without making them sluggish, so they're the perfect snack before an after school activity.
The small size of sliders are just the right size for smaller hands and smaller appetites! Make a double batch of these cuties and freeze them between sheets of parchment paper. Warm individual patties in the microwave, and top with your favourite Zengarry fauxmage. Perfect grab and go snack food!
