It’s the of Summer-Time, which calls for outside fun, traveling, sports practice, swimming and of course hungry kids. This Summer has been absolutely amazing. The kids and I have been on the move non-stop since the last day of school. I’m not sure how I got so fortunate but I was blessed with three sons ages 10, 14 & 21. Yes! You heard me correctly. ALL BOYS! Let’s just stop and take a quick deep breath. Allow me to formally introduce you to my kids:
THE COLLEGE STUDENT
It’s a total understatement saying that “Boys are a handful.” I can honestly say that I totally love every minute of it and they are so much fun! My days are normally filled with gymnastics class, college basketball practices, archery lessons, frequent runs to the park & movies and road trips. However, there is one flaw. BOYS LOVE TO EAT! Like seriously all-day long! Which means that they are always snacking. As a mom it’s important for us to snack smart.
Since I’m such an AWESOME Mom I will let you all in on a secret. I was in my local Walmart and discovered these Nature Valley XL Sweet & Salty Chocolate Nut & Seed Chewy Granola Bars which 50% bigger than the regular Nature Valley Bars that we love and are perfect for satisfying my growing boys hunger. I was so excited that not only are they delicious but their great for both breakfast and a snack.
Imagine sitting on a bench for hours while one child has basketball practice and the other is flipping over beams at gymnastics class. Even as an adult I find myself craving a delicious snack. My days are so overwhelmed with kid activities that when I do get a break it’s only enough time for me to hit the mat and get an hour of yoga practice complete. Not only are the Nature Valley XL Sweet & Salty Chocolate Nut & Seed Chewy Granola Bars great for kids but they are also MOM APPROVED! Definitely the perfect snack for me after working out and yoga.
The kids love their new snack so much that they have made me do a pinky promise that I will add one daily to their lunches when school begins. As a mom that means a lot to me because it’s very important for me to always ensure that the kids snacks are nutritious.
