Eggo-licious After School Snack {recipe}

Now that my kids are back in school, their appetites are on over-drive.  They are expending a lot more energy at school than they did at home over the summer, and since they want to eat right when they get home, I’ve had to get a bit more creative with healthy after school snacks so that they don’t eat empty calories.  This week, as part of my challenge as a “Chief Waffle Officer” I came up with an Eggo-licious After School Snack recipe that my kids loved and that got my seal of approval, too.  Fruit Kabobs made with Eggo® Mini Waffles dipped in Strawberry Yogurt Fruit Dip hit the spot on a hot after-school afternoon, and were healthy and EASY to boot!  Here’s how to make them!  {{Stay tuned each Wednesday for another waffle recipe.  I promise you that I’ll surprise you with new and fun ways to serve up Eggo® Waffles!}}
