So, yeah, there’s a National Snack Food month and it happens to be February! Snacks are anything you can grab quickly. Usually a small portion to satiate either some craving or to hold you over until the next meal. Often, we use snacks as a way to hide our emotions as well.
Often snack foods are considered unhealthy, but the truth is many can be pretty good for you. Just remember, when snacking, keep it moderate and you can enjoy a little bit of everything. Not every snack has to be full of sugar. Just check out these after school snacks with less sugar right here on A Day In Motherhood.
An easy go to snack, and one I find hard to resist are crackers. Crunchy and salty, they are a great way to fix a savory craving. When you make them at home, like these recipes, you can keep them on the healthier side.

While crackers are awesome, when you mix them with other snack foods, you can get my favorite snack food ever. A sweet and salty combination means you never have to decide which you want more. Of course, it’s not limited to a snack mix either. Check out the cookies!

Sometimes, you just need something different. There are so many snack options out there. Most are readily accessibly at the store, but there’s something special to making your own snacks. Mainly the fact that you can make them as full as sugar as you want, or as healthy as you want!
