Healthy After School Snacks – Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes & Bacon Tuna Sliders

Healthy After School Snacks

Like many families, we have a super busy schedule during the school year. My kids have after school activities nearly every day. My son plays soccer and my daughter participates in dance and gymnastics. I make it a point to provide healthy after school snacks to keep them fueled up for their afternoon activities.

Healthy After School Snacks

Two of our favorite healthy after school snacks are Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes and Tuna Turkey Sliders. When the kids are not home until after 7pm some nights, these snacks really hold them over until dinner. Tuna salad was always a favorite of mine growing up. My mom always had Bumble Bee® tuna in the pantry. It’s a tried-and-true product I am happy to make for my children. My mom would be proud.

I still use my mother’s recipe for my tuna salad. I like that Bumble Bee® Albacore products are an easy and delicious way to add a variety of nutrients to our diet including lean protein, healthy fat, and important vitamins and minerals. Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna in Water contains 13 grams of protein and 0 grams of fat per serving, along with essential Omega-3 fatty acids.

Healthy After School Snacks

I use the same tuna salad for mini “sliders” where I use organic turkey bacon instead of bread. The kids LOVE these too! I get the kids involved with making their snacks. I remind them that making healthy choices help them grow strong and healthy.

    I’d love to whip up some healthy snacks like these. They’d be simple enough and they’d make the kids very happy.

    Our daughter loves tuna, I bet the bacon snacks would be a hit in our house. I’ll have to bookmark this.

  7. Nikki

    My hubby and I love tuna, my kids won’t eat tuna they don’t like it. I’m gonna try it out and I’m sure my hubby would love it.

    YUM! I love making anything with tuna (or bacon), I’ll definitely be giving this low-carb recipe a try soon! 🙂

  9. patrice

    I love tuna bake in salad and in most food. Healthy after school snack would be left over tuna casserole.

    What a fun way to use the tuna. My oldest son is a tuna nut!

  13. Elizabeth O.

    I like both the bacon and the cherry tomatoes! These are so easy to do, thanks for sharing the idea!

  14. Maria

    Yum! Great idea, I think this *may* be something my kids would eat… but if not, I definitely would.

  15. VICTORIA

    Great amuse bouche ideas! i just find the cherry tomatoes to be a lil tedious to do. but i could already imagine the flavours from reading just the recipe alone!=)

  16. Dogvills

    Both snacks look absolutely delicious. Tuna melt is my kids’ favorite after school snack. I can’t wait to try the cherry tomatoes and the sliders.

  17. I love the look and sound of those tuna sliders they sound like just my sort of thing. I also love cherry tomatoes.

  18. MsCrookedHalo

    I actually want to try both of these. I love tuna with tomatoes. I only now and then eat bacon but these might make the cut.

  19. sojourner

    I really like the cherry tomato idea. My son loves tuna and I have cherry tomatoes in the fridge. I’m going to try this tomorrow. Quick healthy protein bites 🙂 Thanks for the share.

  20. Jenny

    Of course the bacon sliders look yummy, but those stuffed tomatoes look absolutely delicious. Glad I’m going to the grocery store tomorrow!

  21. HilLesha

    My kids don’t like tuna, but they do like to snack on healthy snacks from time to time, especially carrots. 🙂

  22. Tatanisha Worthey

    Yum! What a fun and healthy snack! You really had me at bacon!! I will have to give these a try- I love an easy snack!
