I am SO done with packing school lunches. So. Done. It’s June. We’ve got about sixteen school days left until the end of the year and depending on the day of the week I am wavering between “I can’t wait for summer vacation to start”, to “Oh crap, the school year is almost over, I don’t think I’m ready for summer yet.” I look forward to having my girls home with me all summer, yet part of me dreads having them home every day for two months and wonders how I am going to get any work done. Ever.
The one part I am 100% done with and will be happy to not have to deal with again until next September is packing lunches. I am all out of clever lunch time ideas. Finding lunch options the kids and I can agree on is tiresome. They change their minds on what they like all the time. One week they tell me they want to only ever eat square salami sandwiches, for the rest of forever, the next week they tell me salami is disgusting and they never want to see it again.
Quaker knows packing lunches is a tiring affair. It’s not easy to find choices that both parents and kids can agree on. Quaker Chewy Super Grains granola bars are here to end lunch box debates with a delicious snack you can both feel good about.
The new Quaker Chewy Super Grains granola bars are something both my kids and I can agree on. They are one of the few snacks my kids never get sick of. My children keep asking me to buy more, happily stuffing them in their lunch sacks each day, and begging me to let them have another for their after school snack.
Not only are these a favourite with my kids, but they are a snack I feel good about giving to them. Quaker Chewy Super Grains granola bars are delicious AND a source of fibre. Plus they are totally peanut free, and made in a peanut free facility, so I don’t have to worry about sending them off to my daughter’s “no nuts zone” classroom.
They taste great. (Seriously, they are yummy. I find myself snacking on them frequently. They are sweet but not too sweet and they have a unique consistency for a granola bar, which almost reminds me of a rice krispie square.) They also contain super grains such as whole grain oats, quinoa, sorghum and barley, all mixed up together to deliver 5 g of protein and 2 g of fibre in each bar.
Am I the only one ready to set aside lunch bag packing until September? What do you and your kids argue about when it comes to packing lunches? What school snacks do you and your kids agree on? Have you tried the new Quaker Chewy Super Grain granola bars yet?
