This time of year, the pace of life seems to increase exponentially. There are track meets, soccer games, spring musical rehearsals, band competitions, academic competitions, school dances, graduations, weekend trips…you get the idea.
That level of activity requires a lot of on-the-go and a lot of snacking on-the-go!
One of our favorites is the single servings of guacamole that are sold in the produce section of Brookshire’s. Paired with some baby carrots or celery sticks, these are portable and pack a lot of nutritional punch. You’re getting good protein that will keep you running and good fat that will keep you full in between meals.
Another snack we love is pre-sliced apples, also found in the produce section at Brookshire’s. Eat with some cheddar cheese and almonds or peanut butter (You can also get peanut butter in single-serving sizes at Brookshire’s), and you have a snack powerhouse. Protein bars, like Luna® brand, also come in handy in a pinch.
Hands down, my boys’ favorite snack is Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® Treats™. Also sold in single-serving packages (do you see a theme here?), these classic kid favorites are just fun and tasty. They even come in fun flavors now, like Cookies ‘N’ Crème, Birthday Cake, M&M’s® and Chocolatey Drizzle. They are made with the quality Rice Krispies that we have loved since our own childhoods. I love to see my kids enjoying something I loved so much as a kid, and they love seeing that Rice Krispies® Treats™ wrapper in their backpack or gym bag.
