Any parent of a toddler knows how important it is to have snacks readily available when you’re on the go. We’re constantly on the move whether it’s out shopping, at the park, or at a sports activity like swimming or gymnastics. With their lightening fast metabolisms and ability to pack away the food I’m always hearing my kids tell me how hungry they are. The challenge is being able to have something in your diaper bag that won’t go bad and is still healthy. For those times when you need to provide them with something to “hold them over” my wife and I have been using Revolution Foods Jammy Sammy’s and Mashups!
They easily store in our diaper bag or the car, come in convenient portions, and best of all their actually healthy! Their products are all made from 100% whole grains and fruit, have no added sugar, and are organic! What’s fun about the Mashups is that since it’s an “applesauce consistency” they can just squeeze them right into their mouths. So not only do they like the taste but it’s kind of fun to eat too.
These were also great travel snacks as well. We recently took a trip from California to Israel and with all that plane travel carrying the right amount of snacks is important. Since these were small enough to fit on our carryon bags we were able to take quite a few with us.
Whether you’re running in between errands or just finishing up Saturday Gymnastics carrying a few of Jammy Sammy’s or Mashups is the way to go!
