I don’t know about you, but I send my kids to school with enough food to feed roughly a whole class when you put everything together. They each get five snacks, one sandwich, and a drink. On the odd days that I pack a hot lunch in a thermos, or they have pizza day at school, I still send five snacks and a drink (sometimes even a sandwich too because, kids!) and when they come home from school they are still hungry!
After school, I make sure to have a good snack waiting. After all, these little munchkins have been at the school for 6 hours; they need to fuel up to get through the last half of the day before dinner and bedtime!
Welch’s Fruit Snacks are a huge family favourite, and they are the only fruit snacks Jordan will eat. Welch’s Fruit Snacks have fruit as the first ingredient and are preservative and gluten free, plus they come in multiple delicious varieties.
I love having a variety of snacks waiting for the kids. Usually, there’s a mix of fruit and vegetables, cookies or crackers and cheese. And of course, we add some Welch’s Fruit Snacks to the mix, and it’s usually the first thing gone off the plate!
Welch’s Fruit Snacks are also a great snack for on the go, we throw them in our bag or even my purse in case anyone needs a snack while we are out and about.
