Easy snacking ideas for kids and their parents who are trying to eat right

I have had a really hard time making the most balanced choices since delivering my baby in September. I have gained more weight afterwards than I ever did during the pregnancy. I am in need of getting back ontrack.

Before I got pregnant, I had signed up to do a half marathon and began training for that. With my Fibromyalgia, it made it hard but doable. Now that I have the baby in tow, things have begun to get harder to accomplish and so I need easy but I also need to set a good example to my other kids. I came up with this “snack hack” knowing that I’d eat it and my kids would as well. I didn’t want it to feel like the prepackaged meals that are so popular, I wanted them to know that it came from home and the wholesome areas of the store.Easy snacking ideas for kids and their parents who are trying to eat rightWhen they’re eating these snacks, it’s almost a full meal to them depending on how much they decide to eat but it’s fulfilling to them and most of all, they love to pair it with their Capri Sun Organic. They are so simple to put together. Just take a slice of turkey, a half slice of cheddar cheese and 2-3 wedges of Granny Smith apples. Just wrap it around itself and serve.

When I’m looking for choices to feed my children along with myself, I look for something that is better-for-you in the long run. I look forward now to eating snacks like this because of the simplicity and ease it is for me and my new busy life. I have long doubted myself why I don’t just get up and move/exercise,making better choices has effected my mood and made me motivated to start moving again. You can do it too!Easy snacking ideas for kids and their parents who are trying to eat right
