Kids quick snack

My grandson, wanted a snack today and everything I suggested, he kind of reluctantly said welllll...So thinking quickly, (hard to do at my age) I told him I'd fix him one his mom and his aunt and uncles use to love...
I took 2 slices of french bread, sliced med thick, toasted one side under the broiler, then on the untoasted side, I put a layer of provolone, sprinkled it with onion powder, and topped that with salami..I then put it under the broiler til the cheese melted and the salami got nice and hot The kid loved it and ate both pieces with gusto I can remember doing this for my 4 kids often and usually when I was up to my eyeballs in washing baseball uni's, fixing a tennis racket, getting a kid out of a tree and trying to get some parents to please help at the snack bar for fridays game
What do your kids like as a quick snack? Are they picky or easy to please...I had two who were picky and two who would wolf down anything within reason
kadesma, remembering

My eldest likes Lean Pockets, my youngest likes a bowl of oatmeal, fruit, or chips & salsa.

slice of bread, margarine and sugar. Yes, bad for kid normally,but my boys were so small that the doctor had them on fattening drinks, {kind of like ensure, I don't remember the name of it now} and told me to give them anything between their meals that would put some meat on them
Both of them started kindergarten in size 3 pants and didn't weigh 40 lbs.

My older son loves it when I put the night before's leftovers in a skillet, then wrap it in a warmed flour tortilla. This works for cut up roasts with veggies, spaghetti sauce with meat and chopped tomatoes, cut up chicken breasts with roasted potatoes...etc...

A lot of the time he'll also add 1/2 of an avocado, sliced up and hot sauce.

i wouldn't mind eating that myself, kads. sounds yummy.
tex, i used to eat butter and sugar or toast and bread. that's when i was going through my teenage changes, and i was always RAVENOUS, so i'd eat like 6 or 8 slices in a row.

My daughter is grown now, but one of her favorite snacks growing up was Ants on a Log. She found the recipe in a cookbook for kids. Celery filled with peanut butter and topped with raisins.
