If you are a busy parent, you are probably on the go most of the time. It is sometimes difficult to juggle all your responsibilities between the kids, work, your home and spouse. Making sure your family eats healthy meals and snacks is important but it is not always easy. What is a parent to do when they want their kids to eat well and just do not have the time? Planing ahead and making it easy for the kids and yourself is the key. Although it can be convenient to grab a bag of chips or snack bars, they are not always the best choice. Here are 3 suggestions that are just as easy and are healthy alternatives to junk food!
- Fresh Fruit: It is as easy and way more healthy to grab an apple, orange or a bunch of grapes than a handful of chips. If you have younger kiddos in the house, you can section your fruit and place them in bags. When they want a snack, they can reach in the fridge and grab a bag of their favorite fruit!
- Veggies And Dip: Many kids may not like eating their veggies, but if you slice them and serve them with a yummy dip, they will! Baby carrots are a big hit in our house with a container of yogurt. Another great combination is celery and natural peanut butter. These can also be ready ahead of time and the kids can grab them when they want.
- Applesauce: Kids love applesauce and parents love to serve this healthy snack. A favorite with my kids are the Mott’s® Snack & Go which come in a variety of delicious flavors. Not only do they taste great, but they come in a convenient pouch but me and the kids like!
When it comes to my kids and what they eat, I do not skimp on quality for the sake of price. Thankfully, I do not give up either when it comes to the products from Mott’s®. I have the peace of mind knowing my kids are eating a healthy snack alternative to junk food. They can choose from such flavors as Original, Mixed Berry, Granny Smith, Cinnamon and Mango Peach.
This on the go mom appreciate the totally portable squeezable pouch we can pack in lunches or take in the car when we are running errands. The kids can grab them if they want a snack and I know they will not make a big mess, which I would be cleaning up! I have a child in school, so I love that Mott’s is also the only applesauce brand with Box Tops for Education®, helping to support kids’ schools. You can find the Mott’s® Snack & Go at Kroger, Walmart, Amazon and many other fine stores.
