I don’t know about your kids, but both of my boys come off the bus from school starving. Most days, the first thing they say to me as they’re walking off of the bus is “Mom, what do we have to eat”.
Knowing they are both ravenous when they get off the bus, I always have a snack ready for them when they come home from school. Because they are growing boys and basically eat me out of house and home, I do a lot of my grocery shopping at Save-A-Lot. There they offer discount groceries every day, so you can bring home fresh foods at great prices. Seriously, by shopping there, I save up to 40% compared to conventional grocery stores.
Since I save time and money by shopping at Save-A-Lot, I can really stock up on after school snacks for the boys. One of their favorite after school snacks are Ants on a Log. My mom made them for me when I was a kid and now that I’m the mom, I love making this fun snack for my two.
When I was at Save-A-Lot recently, I grabbed some celery, raisins and peanut butter to make my Ants on a Log.
