Now that school is starting for the year, I know a lot of us are looking for a quality after-school snack to share to calm the masses and stifle the complaining. I know that when I pick my kids up from school, the first thing they say is, "I'm so hungry!!"
Especially the first couple of weeks of back to school, when they've gotten used to pawing through the panty whenever the mood strikes. That easy access to food whenever is probably the most difficult adjustment.
Well, that, and wearing uniforms again. :)
in my mind, the best snack for my kids is a high quality one, and one of my kid's favorite foods is pizza. It's not so convenient to take a slice of pizza with you wherever you go - ask my son, he's tried it - and so we've discovered that the best of both worlds can be found in Bagel Bites. It's a hand sized pizza, featuring dough made from scratch every day, real cheese (Mozzarella, Cheddar and Monterey Jack), and made from scratch tomato sauce. Most important in the battle to get good foods in my kids - they will eat them - happily, and ask for more!
One of the things I like the most about Bagel Bites is the portability. Many a night I've baked up some Bagel Bites, popped them into a sectioned plate, added some carrot sticks and apple chunks and we've had dinner on the sidelines of big sister's soccer practice - or in the car on the way. Bagel Bites have gone with us to the beach, have been packed in lunch boxes and are high on the list of kid preferred choices 'round here. The kids like 'em because they feel like they are getting on over on me - it feels like a treat to them! - and I like to offer them for many reasons:
- They have 0 grams of trans fat.
- They use REAL cheese. They use high-quality ingredients.
- They're baked, not fried.
- They're quick!
The best thing? My shorties made their OWN lunch - Three Cheese Bagel Bites and a carrot/apple smoothie. I love the fact that they did it by themselves - and the pride on their faces makes everything even better. (And? I will TOTALLY scarf down some Bagel Bites - what this picture doesn't show you is that I had my OWN plate of Bagel Bites. They are a favorite for me as well.)
If you want to grab a box for your kids, (or yourself, hello, I'm not judging!) here's a coupon you can use - be ready when the back to school rush starts!
