Back to school: best packed snacks!

I love a good snack and my kids do too!  I was so excited to receive these good tasting products for my kids (and me to test out) for back to school. They are all perfect for back to school snacks (and lunches) so make sure to check them out.

Chobani - this is a new favorite of mine as they have great flavors in a natural greek yogurt. Even their tag line says it all: go real.  Moms, we really want real ingredients and this yogurt is simply made and tastes great. If you want to have a tasty snack for your kids when they get home try the Chobani Flip for a great mix of either pistachio, chia seeds, granola or almond. One side is greek yogurt and the other side is the mix-ins.  My favorite is the Blueberry Power. Another favorite is the Chobani bite. This is the 3.5 oz cup of great flavor combinations like honey and ginger and  mint with dark chocolate chip in a small size that contains only 100 calories and 8 grams of protein.  My kids also loved the Fylin dragon fruit champions tubes. This low fat greek yogurt tube needs no spoon and is great for their school snack.

DelMonte Fruit Burst Squeezers  – These are a great on-the-go snack. Made with natural fruit purees and juices, they are a nice alternative to apple sauce.  They come in  two varieties:  Simply fruit (Strawberry, Mixed Berry, Apple Cinnamon) and Fruit and Veggie (Peach-Mango , Blueberry) and is the perfect way to kids to eat a serving of fruits and veggies. They contain 1 1/2 servings of fruit and are a great source of vitamin A & C. They do not contain any artificial flavors or high fructose corn syrup.

Applegate Farms  -  Sometimes it is hard to get kids to eat a sandwich and deli meat is tricky. Especially wondering what is in the deli meat. No antibiotics, no nitrates, no junk and the taste of the Applegate farm deli meats is GOOD. They even have a new bologna and you don’t have to wonder what’s in it!   This summer was the perfect time to try the natural beef hot dog. No chemicals or nitrates in this dog!
