When your child walks in the door at the end of the school day, grabbing a snack is likely the first thing he or she does after tossing the backpack on the floor. Schools often schedule lunch early for no apparent reason -- my kid eats at 11:30 and doesn't get out until 3:15. And then there's homework and after-school activities to fire up for, and dinner isn't for a few hours. So kids need snacks that will boost their brain power, give them an energy kick, and provide some nutrition. 

What to serve? Well, the cookies and milk we grew up on aren't the best option ... Instead, try these six "super foods" that have been shown to improve memory and concentration.

What's your favorite healthy after-school snack?
