"Don't Feel Like Cooking" Solutions?

What are your solutions when your children come home from school and want a quick bite? Something that can be made quickly and perhaps can be made in the microwave? Has anyone tried Kraft Easy Mac cups? It's easy to prepare and alas no dishes to wash.

I keep almonds and cut up vegies in ziplocs in the fridge, just pull them out and dump them on a plate before the kids walk in the door.

Haven't tried the mac cups, but my kids love mac and cheese. Usually a yogurt, fruit, a cheese stick or a few crackers w/ juice/milk will hold them over before dinner.

Oh, the best time of day!
I always chop up an apple into slices, and also an orange. cheese and crackers is good. If they complain, never mind. You can give them something they like if you want, but they won't starve before dinner, and if they do, it won't be your fault!
