With back to school in full swing, our kids start Tuesday, we are frantically trying to get things finished up so they have everything they need. For mom that means there is extra running to do and for most of us, this is just the start. If your kids go to a charter or private school like mine do you will most likely be responsible for transporting them and that means you'll be racking up hours in the car over the next eight months.
Last year, our first year with a child in school full time, I found out that I was a lot more tired, even if I wasn't doing any more than usual. We were finally able to link that to me not getting good enough nutrition so this year we're working to make sure that doesn't happen again. To help with that I'm putting together a box of yummy snacks to keep in the car that I can have (and probably share with the kids) as I'm running around with the kids. The trick has been finding things I like, that don't need to stay cool - chocolate is not an option *sigh*, but won't be hurt if they freeze either.
One of the things I am most excited to have in my box are Mamma Chia's new Chia Squeeze Vitality Snacks. If you haven't tried these yet add them to your next shopping list! These snacks look just like the squeeze pouches our kids all love but they are made for an adult. Each package contains organic chia seeds and organic fruits and/or vegetables for a 70 calorie, no sugar, snack on the go. Flavors include Apple Cinnamon, blackberry Bliss, Green Magic, Mango Coconut, Strawberry Banana, and my personal favorite, Wild Raspberry. Other bonuses you get with the Chia Squeeze include, 1,200 mg of Omega-3s, 4g of fiber, and 2g of protein. Are you excited yet?
