I have 3 kids ages, 5, 7, and 10 and we are a busy family.  With school starting next week, we will really be busy.  Just about every week night we have something going on; football, baseball, or cheerleading.  All the activities start at 6.  This is always a problem for me because I don’t know when I should feed them.  I don’t like dinner before because I don’t want them to be sick out on the hot fields.  We are tired after practice and many times they aren’t in the mood for anything big.  I’ve changed what we do several time and this seems to work for us.  I give them a big snack around 4:30.  This hold them over until a light dinner around 8:30.  The problem for me is that I have to do double the work.  Here’s one the snacks we’ve been doing lately that they have been loving.

We call this a BANANA TACO

  • tortilla
  • peanut butter
  • chocolate spread
  • banana
  • jelly (optional)

It’s so simple to make.  Just spread out the chocolate spread on one side and peanut butter on the other.  Slice the bananas diagonally.  This way they lay flat.  Fold it in half.  The bananas stay in because the peanut butter and chocolate are like glue that stop them from sliding out.

I’ve recently discovered the new Quaker® Real Medleys® Yogurt Cups at at demo at Walmart.  I had 3 of my neighbors and 2 of my kids and they ambushed the guy running the stand.  They each had 2 samples, one of both flavors and all of them loved it.

I have not seen anything like this before.  It’s a mixture of granola, fruit and yogurt found in the cold cereal aisle, not refrigerated section.  You use half a cup of cold milk to activate it.  The kids think this is so neat and simple to make.  My kids are loving them.  It says “Crunchy, Cool, Yum” and it’s exactly what it is.  It has 10 grams of protein which I love because it helps keep them full longer.  This would work perfect for breakfast or even in a lunch box too.  We even added cut up apples, grapes, and bananas to it.
