Heading Out To An Event? Don’t Forget Your Snacks…

When you spend so much time on the road it really doesn’t make sense not to bring your own snacks.  We always have snacks in the car since we go to the barn every single day after work/school.  Every kid at the barn knows we have coolers in the car.  So for us, it is a way of life for sure.

Today we head out to see the Harlem Globetrotters – more than an hour away.  We weren’t in the car for 45 seconds and my daughter started asking for snacks.  I am not sure if that is out of habit because she knows we always have snacks or if she truly feels she needs the snack every time we are on the road.

Of course we had snacks and they always have to be “special” snacks – you know the snacks that the kids love!  Today we brought some of our favorites – Welch’s Fruit Rolls, Go Organically Fruit Snacks and Oatmeal Fruit Squeezes.

Welch’s Fruit Rolls deliver the same quality we have come to know and love in Welch’s Fruit Snacks in a NEW format. Featuring fruit as its first ingredient, the Fruit Rolls are gluten free, preservative free and available in three mouthwatering flavors.  These are my favorites – I always have a strong desire to hide them from the kids.  However, I don’t – I end up giving these fruit rolls to the kids.  After all they are far better than other alternatives the kids could be asking for.

Munk Pack’s ready-to-eat Oatmeal Fruit Squeezes, packed with whole grains and fruit bites, are perfect for a quick breakfast or snack on the go! Available in five delicious flavors, including Apple Quinoa Cinnamon, Maple Pear Quinoa, and more, they are gluten-free, non GMO, vegan and high in fiber. (Available at Target, Whole Foods and more) The kids love these too – the pouch design is very innovative and perfect for portability.  The packaging is perfect for our trips as well as for their school lunches.

Go Organically Fruit Snacks are the perfect option for anyone in your family who is looking for a smart and delicious snack. Go Organically® Fruit Snacks are USDA-certified organic, made with real fruit purées and real fruit juices.  These tasty treats include 100% of the daily recommended value of Vitamin C and are an excellent source of Vitamins A and E. Go Organically® Fruit Snacks are GMO-free, gluten-free, preservative-free and made with natural flavors and colors from natural sources.  Not to mention, each individual pack is only 70 calories! (Available at Shoprite, Stop & Shop, Giants and more)  The kids love these too – and I don’t mind allowing them to have them.  They could be asking for cookies or something like that – yet they ask for these which are a much more healthy option.  I am obligated to oblige!
