Summer is flying by here! We are well over half way through and I am not looking forward to school starting. I love the carefree, low-stress pace of summer, and I enjoy having all my kids home. I admit, there are days it drives me nuts, and I will not miss the summer heat (or the bugs!) once fall comes, but I do truly love this time with my kids.
One aspect of summer that I struggle with is making lunch creative. I love routines, but my kids get bored of the same treats/snacks/meals. Somehow, PB&J sandwiches (which are normally fine for sack lunches at school) don't fly quite as well when we're all eating at home. I'm frequently trying new lunch add-ons and new snacks to get us through the day. We do a lot of crackers!
Until recently, I had never heard of Pirate's Booty...at least as a snack :). Pirates Booty® is a delicious baked snack made from puffed rice and corn, and blended with white cheddar cheese. It is also:
- Gluten free
- Made without artificial colors, flavors and preservatives
- Available in a 6 pack of 1 oz lunch bags
What sorts of snacks do you enjoy serving your kids?
