During our Cheapskates Club Show on Tuesday night, one of the questions was about snacks, particularly for keeping teenage boys full.
Boy, do I know about that! My boys seemed to have not just hollow legs, but no soles on their feet - I used to tease them the food just fell straight through!
It's hard to keep snacks not only healthy, but budget friendly too, so that you and the kids are happy.
Don't be tempted to give and buy snacks. Packets of chips, corn chips, pop corn, crackers, muesli bars, fruit leathers, little containers of dried fruits, yoghurts, custards, biscuits and individual cakes are very expensive. And all of these things can be quickly and easily made at home - you don't need any special ingredients, or skills (if I can make these, you can!).
Here are the snacks I made for my kids (and still do on occasion):
