Summertime is a time for our kids to have fun with their friends and spend more time outdoors (hopefully). But, as any parent knows, kids get bored fast! With boredom comes snacking. Lots of snacking! The grocery bill takes a knock and we’re constantly reminded by these bored souls that there is nothing to eat. Does this sound familiar?
While it goes without saying, the healthiest options for our kids, is to stock up on fruits, veggies, fresh products like yogurt, cheese sticks, boiled eggs and deli meat... but our kids don’t always want these. Let’s be honest, our kids want snacks!
Here at GROW, we’ve been researching some filling, healthy, appetizing, not-so-expensive and on-the-go snacks.
Stretch Island Fruit Leather Snacks
These fruit strips are made with all fruit (concentrate) and zero sugar. They come in delicious, kid friendly flavors like grape, strawberry, cherry, apple etc. These are great on-the-go, individually packaged, sweet treats and are great for those who have a gluten intolerance or allergies to food dyes.
Most kids LOVE cheese! These bars are really low carb, high protein, and gluten free. There are four flavors to choose from, so if your family is like mine, there’s something for everyone in the family. The best way to describe these bars is to imagine melted cheese under the broil that has crisped to perfection!
S’mores Blast - This Bar Saves Lives
These bars are made with clean ingredients, fruits, and vegetables. Shhhh, don’t tell your kids!
Nut free, gluten free, non GMO, Kosher… what more could you want? But wait… these bars save lives! When you purchase a box, the company gives back to children in need by providing them with life-saving food. While your kids eat and enjoy these yummy treats, you know you have done your part as a parent and globally!
MySuperPops Organic Mini Popcorn Chips
Made with organic corn, chia, flax and quinoa and sunflower seeds… but your kids would never suspect they were this healthy. With delicious flavors like white cheddar, kettle, and honey bbq, they are certainly something kids crave.
A personal favorite is chocolate almond butter, but there are many to choose from. These cookies are big in size and one suffices. They are filling, rich and delicious. These cookies are travel ready for on-the-go days or even a scrumptious after dinner dessert.
As parents we want to enjoy these longer summer days too. To make your shopping a little easier with these snack monsters constantly eating, why not consider Amazon? Free shipping with Prime and more time for you to rest and enjoy more time with your family.
