after school snack : orange fish

With back-to-school in full swing, I thought it would be fun to add a little sunshine to our after-school snacks.  While we adore summer here and are sad to see it come to a close for the year, I also just love celebrating every season and finding creative ways to add bright and happy surprises in unexpected ways, especially for our kiddos.  I'm not sure about your littles, but mine are haanngry EVERY. SINGLE. AFTERNOON. without fail.

We keep a snack-sack on hand, filled with healthy options so we can grab it from our mudroom and go.  It saves the day as our daughter hops into the car at pick-up after school!   Her first question upon climbing in is "Do you have a snack for me, Mommy?  I'm hungry!"  And yet, as soon as we get home they are STILL hungry so I try to have something waiting for them at home, too, that is satisfying yet light enough as not to spoil their dinner.

  • 1 Orange, sliced
  • Blueberries
  • 1 Strawberry, chopped into small pieces for the lips
  • White sprinkles + Chocolate Chips (we use vegan) for the eyes


  • Cut the fruit, as shown.  Arrange all fruit pieces on a plate or platter.  Serve and enjoy!


This cute and easy fruit fish snack is a fav of ours.  They love how fun it is and, of course, as their mama I love that it's nutritious and brings a huge smile to their little faces!
