You know that hunger that your kids get after school? The kind that takes them from this:
Us, too. And we’ve got three fun new ways to beat it. (Yep, we received samples of all these to try at FBM HQ!)
Annie’s Chewy Granola Bars
Granola bars are nothing new. But Annie’s Homegrown Organic Chewy Granola Bars are a new fave in our house because they’re extra chewy and full of whole grains (8 grams to be exact). With nothing but natural stuff in them, you’ll feel good giving them and they’ll love the taste of the flavors: Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, and (our personal fave flavor) Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip.
KIND Fruit Bites
If your kids are like mine, then, um, fruit snacks are like THE THING. My daughter cannot get enough it seems (and confession: it’s the only way I can get through Target peacefully with her), but have you looked at the ingredient label on ’em? Holy sugar. Which is why these KIND Fruit Bites — that are made with only fruit (so gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free ) — are now a staple at our house. Granted, out of the package they don’t look like the conventional brightly colored fruit snacks they’re probably used to seeing (they’re actually kind of square and a brownish color), but if you can get your kids to try them, they’re delicious. (And, hey, if they won’t give them a shot, then they make for a great pre-workout snack for you!)
NOSHI Food Paint
All kids love to play with their food and Noshi Food Paint takes that to the next fun and tasty level. Made from organic fruit puree with no added sugar, salt or preservatives, kids can literally turn their food into art. From pancakes and oatmeal to fruits and veggies, this makes after-school snack-time extra fun and artsy.
What do you love to give your littles when they get home and are hangry? Fruits and veggies are obviously a great go-to, too! —Jenn
