Guys it’s September already! Summer was awesome but boy did it go by too quickly. It’s amazing how the time flies by. I mean my baby just started grade 1 last week. Grade 1! How did this happen? It seems like just yesterday I was a sobbing mess taking her for her first day of daycare. Now I pack her a lunch and send her off on a school bus every morning. And speaking of lunch, boy can that kid eat. She’s like a bottomless, six year old pit. She gets a good breakfast before she leaves the house and I make sure she get a hearty and healthy lunch but by the time she gets off that bus she has a one track mind – food!
Now I don’t like filling her up too much before dinner but the fact is that since I don’t get home until close to dinner time each day it doesn’t matter how prepared I am, she’s going to want something before I can get dinner on the table. So I do my best to give her after school snacks that hold her until dinner but that aren’t complete garbage. Some days it’s fruit or cheese or maybe some yogurt but it’s also fun to giver her a snack sometimes that seems more like a treat.
New to the Nutri-Grain portfolio, Kellogg Canada has introduced Fruit & Nut Medley Bars. This is Nutri-Grain as you’ve never seen it before!
