This is my first year with both of my children in full-time school. It’s a big year for me and I would be lying if I said I didn’t have anxieties about not only being home by myself all day without my little one but also the fact that once my kids arrive home from school, they’ll be off to practices and classes. Having the kids out all day means lots of snacks, though. Even in school, the kids are asked to bring snacks for their time during recess so we go through a lot of snacks in our house.
This year I plan to make a special effort for my kids’ snacks. I’m including some of their favorite snacks to eat as well as the necessary napkin (because I’d prefer my kids not to look like it all was smeared across their face, even though they probably won’t use it anyway), water bottle, and a note from me. I remember being completely embarrassed when my mom would send a note with me in my backpack but my kids don’t seem to have the same embarrassment. Besides, as a parent, I’m going to write my kids a note whether they want one or not.
A couple of snacks that always make it to the top of my kids’ want list are the Lance Toast Chee Sandwich Crackers and the Snyder’s of Hanover lunch packs.
The Lance Toast Chee Sandwich crackers are a classic in our family. They contain 5g of protein and for children who need the energy for school and practices, it’s perfect to help keep them feeling fuller longer and helps fuel them up. These sandwiches have been around for over 100 years with real peanut butter or real cheese between two crackers. They come in 8 count pack, 20 count pack, or 6 count pack so you can get the amount that’s perfect for your family.
Snyders of Hanover pretzels are also a classic, having been America’s pretzel bakery since 1909. These packs of pretzels are lower fat than traditional snacks, they have simple ingredients, and they are made in a peanut-free facility so they are safe for school and other public places.
