"I'm hungry!" How many times a day do you hear those dreaded words? By the time most children arrive home from a long day of school, they're likely famished. And we're guessing your children probably aren't much different. If you're one of those parents who are on the never-ending quest for innovative yet healthy snacks, stock up on these scrumptious suggestions.

Think big with these small snacks. Toss a handful of frozen, fresh or canned fruit with a container of low-fat yogurt and a handful of ice into a blender. Pop a straw in the cup and you've got yourself a sweet smoothie loaded with goodness. String cheese served alongside an apple or orange always makes for a balanced snack. How about tossing together peanuts, whole-wheat pretzels, raisins, sunflower seeds and dried bananas for a homemade trail mix?
