My daughter is showing signs of this same problem, because lately she has been running to the candy jar when we walk in the door.
I decided I wanted some carbs, something a little sweet (but without regular table sugar), and healthy. A perfect after school snack.
I'm going to experiment with different combinations, but I'm liking this one for now. I think my daughter wants something sweeter, while I'm trying to avoid any added sugar. I thought the sweetness was perfect, but then again, I haven't eaten real sugar for over a month now (and I'm dying, believe me). You may want to add a little honey or agave syrup to my recipe.
My daughter loves toothpicks, as I mentioned, and I like these plastic reusable kid toothpicks that I picked up at a Japanese store. They are for bentos, and they work perfectly for her bite-sized food preferences.
1 T wheat germ or flax seed
1. Heat the cream cheese and peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl for 8 seconds. Stir thoroughly.
