Growing up, I remember my dad taking my sisters and me to Sam’s Club pretty much weekly. We rode on the flat bed cart and sampled to our heart’s content. One of the snacks my dad bought often was a warehouse club-sized box of Bagel Bites. We all loved popping them in the toaster oven for a quick afternoon snack.
Some things remain the same from generation to generation… the need to snack is definitely one of those things. Especially for my four homeschooled kids, who claim they are hungry every other hour throughout the day. Having a balanced snack arsenal is an important part of our day-to-day routine because it’s hard to learn and have a good attitude when you’re hungry.
I like to keep a variety of snacks on hand. Fresh fruit or veggies are nice because they don’t take any prep at all. But on days when I have more time, it’s nice to change things up and make Bagel Bites in the oven or microwave. My kids enjoy their hot, cheesy pizza goodness. Having quality snacks in the pantry and fridge makes it easier to offer tasty, good for you snacks on a regular basis. I encourage you to keep a list like the one below to make life easy when you’re planning your weekly grocery run.
Bagel Bites – a baked snack that’s easy to prepare and ready in just minutes! Made using real cheese, made-from-scratch tomato sauce, and bagel dough freshly prepared every day on site, Bagel Bites are a fun, convenient snack.
Fresh fruit – Apples, grapes, bananas, whatever is in season
Pretzels or crackers
Popcorn – we love to drizzle air popped popcorn with equal parts melted butter and coconut oil and then lightly salt it
Carrot chips/sliced bell peppers with hummus – store bought or make your own (try this spinach artichoke version from Shugary Sweets)
Strawberry Lime Smoothies – delicious and refreshing
Basic Granola – so good on its own or with yogurt
Granola Bars – are ideal for taking on the go, No Bake Peanut Butter Pretzel Granola Bars are kid pleasing!
