My family is vegan, and going grocery shopping with our son usually means having to tell him he can't have certain snacks. But just because go-to snacks like string cheese and cookies aren't on the menu doesn't mean feeding your kids after school has to be complicated. That's why it's helpful to have some great vegan after school snack recipes on hand.
There are plenty of animal-friendly diets out there, but "vegans do not eat meat, fish, poultry or animal products and by-products such as eggs, dairy products, and honey," the Vegetarian Resource Group noted. When parents at school or play dates learn that our family is vegan, I typically have to dispel a few myths. One of the biggest misconceptions being that we only "rabbit food." Obviously there's more variety to an animal-friendly diet than just raw veggies. Still, despite all the animal-free options available, I'll be the first to admit that being vegan isn't always convenient.
Sometimes the prospect of "veganizing" your favorite recipes can feel overwhelming and time-consuming. Thankfully, once you see just how many flavorful dishes are out there, you'll feel more confident in the kitchen. So check out these vegan after school snack recipes that are as tasty as they are easy to make.
