As an adult I know how often I experience hunger throughout my day. I’m a three square meals a day kind of gal but as far as snacking goes, I snack as often as I can with my hectic schedule and find myself doing so as often as time/snack cravings allow. Now, if I can tell you how hungry I am throughout the day, then I’m sure you can imagine how often little ones come to me clamoring for snacks. Unfortunately, I can’t chalk up the constant hungries to growth spurts: my little ones were born hungry and have stayed that way ever since.
This means that I have to keep a constant store of snacks in the pantry as well as in the fridge, just to keep up with the 24/7 snack requests. The only problem this presents for me as a mom, aside from making me feel broke all the time, is that I have to keep changing up the snack selection as well as make sure what I do have on hand isn’t pure garbage food. I try to keep fresh fruit at the front of my arsenal but let’s face it, fruit isn’t necessarily the best snack out there as it is AND on top of rising costs, fruit also goes bad more quickly than more shelf-stable options. So, if I can’t keep fruit stocked in the fridge, I’ll try to make sure I have plenty of good choices available in the pantry.
My fellow parents know how hard it is to stay on track with good choices when grocery stores are full of temptation. Cookies, cakes, candies, etc. are cheaper, more tempting and easier to throw in our grocery carts than taking the time to read labels, check reviews, not have a mini heart-attack at high costs, etc. but thankfully there are a lot of great brands that are doing their part to come out with wholesome alternatives with organic ingredients that won’t break the bank.
Quaker ® is one such company. Quaker® has been a household name for over 140 years, providing families with delicious products ever since. From recipes to breakfast cereals and now USDA certified organic snacks for kids, Quaker® doesn’t fail to deliver affordable options that you can feel great about feeding your family.
Just recently Quaker® released Quaker Kids Organic Bars and Bites on Amazon, which for busy moms & dads who can’t always get to the store or who find it more cost effective to buy online, is fantastic. Also, launching on Amazon has made it easier to track down the products you want most instead of coming away empty handed when the products aren’t on the shelves at your favorite grocery spot. Now I can easily stock up on Quaker Kids Organic products for the times when my little ones are asking for snacks. Plus they have 11-16 grams of 100% whole grains (depending on the flavor), and are made with no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors or preservatives, and contain no added colors so I feel great about adding them to my pantry lineup
Among the products released in the Quaker® Kids Organic line are:
- Whole Grain Strawberry Bars
- Whole Grain Chocolate Bars
- Whole Grain Blueberry Bites
- Whole Grain Strawberry Bites
- Sampler pack with one box of each new variety!
