It’s still Summer! Yaayyyy!!!!
Apart from being so much fun, summer also means busy parents are juggling between work, home and the constantly changing landscape of the modern summer…day camps, family holidays, overnight camps, babysitters, sleepovers, and general mayhem. And we say… Bring it on!
While we believe that playing outside is the most important thing about summer, maintaining good eating habits is the second most important thing. Without good eats, we lose our rhythm, our energy, our jam. The challenge is that with the loss of routine, how do we manage it all?
Preparing and using a healthy snack kit (ours is packed along with a first aid kit, towels, and water bottles) is the life line that keeps us going. Keep your snack kit in your car or packed and ready to go near your door, so it’s easy to summer-on!
Try filling airtight containers with these simple snacks that fill the void, and satisfy your kids during those meltdown moments:
- Dried fruit
- Fruit leather
- Pumpkin seeds
- Seed butter spread
