After-school snacks are often laden with sugar and artificial colors. Not so with the following treats that offer healthier, kid-friendly versions.

Justin’s Peanut Butter Cups
Melt-in-your-mouth organic, fair-trade peanut butter cups. Also try Seth Ellis Chocolatier’s organic, peanut-free Sun Cups made with sunflower-seed butter.
Fresh, moist twists made with natural flavors and colors, such as beet juice extract, brown rice syrup, molasses, and anise. Comes in classic black and yummy strawberry.
