Kids starving after a long day of school? Be prepared for when hunger strikes with After School Snack Packs featuring RITZ Filled Cracker Sandwiches and all their favorites!
I am mentally and physically preparing myself for the First day back to school and all the days that follow after. We have been so lax this summer with bed times, routines, etc. Starting this week, I am putting together a list of all things we need to accomplish before the big day hits.
With my kids being home all day long during the summer with me, snack time is all over the place whereas when they are in school, I know after school is hangry time. As soon as they get in the car, they’re wondering if they can have a snack. After School Snack Packs to the rescue!
When my son started school two years ago, a few things were certain. He was starving when he got home as lunch was at 10:30 in the morning! and he was exhausted. I’ve quickly learned to A. Pack snacks in the car and B. Quiet time after school is essential and a much-needed break from all that school work.
Now my daughter is going into kindergarten this year and I expect nothing less than what my son experienced. In fact, she still naps, by choice, every so often so I’m to belive she’ll be in bed at 7pm every night for a while.
As I stated, I need to start preparing for these moments, so the kids and I headed to our local Kroger to start stockpiling the snacks. My son is absolutely in love with RITZ Filled Peanut Butter Cracker Sandwiches while my daughter loves the cheese variety. Into the cart both packs went and to be honest, they won’t make it until the first day of school much less the end of the week. #familyfavorite
After the first few weeks when my son started school, I found these leak proof boxes which gave me the idea to make After School Snack Packs and have them sitting in his car seat for when he was finished with school. He loved it so much, it’s become a daily routine. He loves to help me pack the boxes in the morning, head off to school and then devour them when he hits the car.
I also love this idea for practices. When school starts, the activities pick up again. Soccer, baseball and gymnastics just to name a few. My kids are always starving after practices so the After School Snack Packs have become all the time snack packs.
We usually pack a fruit, some type of cheese and RITZ crackers. We switch it up from time to time, and might include a sandwich, but one thing is for certain, there is always a pack of RITZ crackers in there!
RITZ Filled Cracker Sandwiches are convenient, keeps away the after school meltdowns and are the perfect on the go snack no matter where we are or what we are doing.
I may not be mentally prepared for the first day of school as my baby enters kindergarten and I may not have started my shopping for back to school supplies, but one thing is for sure, I have one happy little guy when he’s got a package of RITZ crackers in his hands and that makes for one happy mama!
