Millions of nerve-wracked parents will be liberated in the coming weeks, after spending a long hot summer trying to entertain their vacationing offspring. Kids, we love ya, but glad to see you back on a schedule with sane bedtime hours, structure to the day, and less ruckus at home.
As it relates to Fooducate, back-to-school means either a school lunch or a packed lunch. In either case, chances are you’ll be sending some sort of snack in your child’s backpack. Sadly, most packaged and prepared snacks are highly processed are of poor nutritional value. You can also bet that the nutritional value is in inverse proportion to how “cool” the snack packaging will be.
So let’s help each other out please. We’re calling out to the Fooducate community to help us build out our Top Ten School Snack list. We’re looking for snacks that
1. kids will actually eat
2. taste good or great
3. add, not detract nutritional value
4. are easy to prepare
5. are cheap
Got something good? please comment here, on facebook or email us. We will publish the list of recipes in early September and promise to attribute each suggestion we use.
Bring it on friends, the kids are waiting…
