Our snack routine is drastically different during summer break than it is during the school year. Our days start and end later and our regularly scheduled mealtimes get pushed aside in favor of other activities. One thing that’s been pretty constant the past few weeks is that we are eating dinner quite a bit later than we usually do. It works with our schedule though and we find that we end up enjoying more of our day, especially time spent outside, when we eat later.
However, the one problem that we have with this is that the time between lunch and dinner can be pretty long. That means our afternoon snacks serve as a mini-meal. So we focus on choosing something substantial and not junky. Fruit with cheese and crackers, yogurt and peanut butter crackers, PB & banana roll-ups and pizza bagel all make the rounds for this bigger snack.
Speaking of Bagel Bites, they are currently hosting a “Snack Simply Pledge.” The pledge states that as parents, we’ll choose simple and wholesome choices at snack time and that we’ll “Keep It Simple, Keep It Tasty, and Keep It Fun.” I don’t know about you, but that’s one pledge I have no problems making!
But to make it even better, Bagel Bites is donating $1 for every pledge made to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, up to $50,000. Additionally, everyone that takes the pledge will be able to print off a coupon for $1 off Bagel Bites. Click here to take the pledge!
I also have 4 coupons for FREE Bagel Bites that I’m giving away to one commentor. Just leave me a comment letting me know about your summertime snacking. I’d love to hear about your habits or a favorite snack that your family loves. The giveaway ends Saturday, July 23 at midnight EST.
