Back to School With Blue Band Snacks

The kids just got back to school and we are looking forward to having them come home tired and hungry every afternoon. It’s tempting to give them junk food as they wait for dinner but that would be unhealthy and expensive.

This year, make after-school snacks healthy and fun while growing great kids with blue band margarine. Here are some of the ideas for home made, nutritious snacks that will keep our kids full in time for dinner.

  1. Egg Sandwich

Add some excitement to your usual sandwich with this ten minute snack. First, you need to have your pan greased with margarine and ready for cooking. Create a hole on your slice of bread, put it in the pan then pour an egg into the hole. Let it cook to your liking before adding another slice of bread. Simple

You can also add in some eggs, tuna, lettuce, a sausage or sprinkle some sesame seeds to make it sweeter and of course spread some margarine to make it healthier.
