With back to school season in full swing, parents are getting back into the routine of making healthy after school snacks. It’s no secret that schedules are as hectic as ever, but that’s not stopping parents from taking the time to pack nutritious snacks for their kids. According to a recent survey conducted by Borden® Cheese:
two out of three parents pack lunches for their kids
More than 65 percent of parents believe nutritious snacks are a must-have when packing those lunches
50 percent of parents identify time or convenience as the primary challenges to offering healthy, nutritious lunches and after-school snacks for their children
Here are a couple healthy, creative recipes on behalf of Borden® Cheese:
Cheese & Apple Sailboats
Set sail after school with an apple and cheese sailboat snack. Cut each slice of tasty cheese diagonally to create two triangles.

Attach the cheese slice to the apple with the toothpick and you have a delicious, nutritious apple and cheese sailboat!
