This sweet little recipe doesn’t involve any cooking, so it’s easy to whip up after school. Spice up some rice cakes with peanut butter, coconut and cherries like they do here.

If you’re looking for a quick savory snack, a simple quesadilla can be a filling but low-carb choice. Add in a little cheese and refried beans, like this recipe does, and use a whole-wheat tortilla for maximum healthiness.

3. Chocolate Greek Yogurt Dip
