Cheesecake Snacks

Prep Time 5 minutes

Graham crackers are a terrific source of "hidden" whole grains. Kids don't have any idea they're good for them and topped with fruit spread and low fat cream cheese they have just the right combination of whole grain and protein to make the perfect after-school snack.

Use whichever fruit spread you like and complement it with fresh fruit of the same type, or switch it up by adding a different fresh fruit to the top.
