I've found that kids don't generally notice how elaborate the snack is--just how good it tastes.

Check with your child's teacher about any allergies. If there are nut, chocolate, egg, wheat or dairy issues, she can tell you that.

My DD asked me to send in Rice Krispie Treats for her birthday one year, because there was a highly-allergic child in her class, but this child could have those.

My kindergartener says that his friends bring in "donut holes" for birthday snack treats.

Mini muffins are fun too.

Brownies are also a hit if chocolate is not an issue, or chocolate-chip cookes (make a pan cookie and cut it up.) You can pack individual servings of brownies or cookies in sandwich bags or even "treat bags" that are decorated. This way you have a simple treat but a cute package. Or just send in a pack of birthday napkins so that when the snack is served there's a cute napkin to set it on.
