It's back to school time - which, for many parents, means busy afternoons of homework and running around to various sports and activities. The kids can often be ravenous after a busy day of learning and playing and need something to tide them over till dinner time, but not ruin their appetites. We share a round-up of some easy, delicious snacks to keep the kids fuelled for the afternoon - that won't ruin dinner!

Apples, peanut butter, coconut and just a touch of chocolate - or carob, for a healthier option - come together for a delicious and easy afternoon snack to keep the kids going. And they're totally hackable for whatever your kids like best; think nuts, crunchy granola, chia seeds... the possibilities are endless!
