Recall Summary

Name of product

Boy’s hooded jacket with a waist drawstring

Hazard

The jackets have a drawstring at the waist that could become snagged or caught in small spaces or vehicle doors, posing significant entanglement hazard to children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines about drawstrings in children’s upper outerwear. In 1997, those guidelines were incorporated into a voluntary standard. Then, in July 2011, based on the guidelines and voluntary standard, CPSC issued a federal regulation. CPSC’s actions demonstrate a commitment to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on neck and waist drawstrings in upper outerwear, such as jackets and sweatshirts.

After a long day at school, kids are often wanting a snack. It’s easy to grab snacks from the pantry, but those aren’t always the healthiest or most filling between school and dinner. Here are some quick, healthy, after school snack ideas for your kids. Share your favorite after school snack in the comments!

Veggies and dip

A classic and quick after school snack is veggies and dip! You can cut vegetables like peppers, cucumber, and use ready to dip veggies like carrots and sugar snap peas. Pair these with a yummy dressing like ranch for a quick and healthy snack that’s easy to prepare.

Fruit and nut butter

Add some protein to a sweet snack like pairing fruit with nut butter. Apples and peanut butter are a classic snack. Top these with some granola for a crunch, filling snack. Don’t forget ants on a log with celery, peanut butter, and raisins.

Yogurt dipped fruit and pretzels

A simple DIY snack is to dip fruit or pretzels into yogurt and put it in the freezer. This healthy treat will be a hit for all members of the family and is easy to prepare. You can mix and match different fruits and yogurt flavors too! Try strawberry yogurt on blueberries or pineapple yogurt on a banana. Yum!

Pinwheel roll ups

Grab some cheese, lunch meat, cream cheese, and veggies, layer those onto a tortilla and roll them up. Slice these to make pinwheels that are yummy and healthy. These also last great in the fridge and make a great lunch too!

Quick pizza bagels or toast

You can make a quick pizza bagel or pizza toast at home! Layer your bagel or bread with cheese and toppings, then broil in the oven until the cheese is melted. It’s a great snack that’s also easy to add yummy veggies on top too! You can even top zucchini slices with cheese instead of bread.
