I only serve an afternoon snack because I serve breakfast so these are all PM snacks...

Twice a week I serve Homemade cookies and milk. I make a batch and freeze them and store them in a freezer bag. Then I pop them in the oven and the turn out wonderful! I usually do Oatmeal raisin, Choc. Chip, P. Butter, mini m&m.
The other snacks I choose I serve with water or Juice depending on what they are:
Cheese and crackers
Pretzels and raisins
grapes and Wheat Thins
Apples and Peanut Butter
Trail Mix and Juice
Carrot Sticks and Cheese
