With school back in session, life is busier than ever before! I’m sharing the ways that I keep my kids fueled for school and activities with quick and easy snack options.
We are about a month into school now and I feel like I spend half of my time planning meals and snacks. Between packing lunches to figuring out easy dinners and after school snack options, I am always on the lookout to make my life easier. My kids take a snack to school every day, and I often have to give them an after school snack en route to our afternoon activities. I look for convenient snack options that have wholesome ingredients and are fun to eat. My girls always request Snyder’s-Lance snacks, I love that I can buy a variety pack that features snacks from the five different Snyder’s-Lance brands. My girls love the taste and the fun of choosing their favorite flavor, and I love that the snacks are made with great tasting, better ingredients!
My kids all have different tastes, and it is so nice to be able to accommodate all of those tastes in one variety pack! My youngest adores Kettle BBQ Potato Chips, and my twins love the Cape Cod Kettle Chips and Late July Chipotle Nacho Chips. My husband has been known to grab a bag of Kettle Jalapeno Chips and toss them in his briefcase on the way to work. The single serve packages are perfect for portion control, and I always have a bag in the car or in my purse for a snack on short notice.
Snyder’s-Lance snacks are also great to eat at home, I often let my girls choose their favorite flavor and serve some fruits and veggies alongside the chips for fuel during their daily homework session. On our crazy busy days where there’s not time to stop home before activities, I pack a paper bag for each girl with a bag of chips and a piece of fruit. They hop in the car and munch on their snack while we’re off to our next destination.
Snyder’s-Lance snack packs are available at most major grocery retailers. I always keep a package in my pantry for our snacking needs. Ready to give them a try? You can visit their website to download a coupon and save! What’s your best trick for keeping your kids well fed at school and beyond?
