Back to school is upon us, my friends! My boys started last Thursday, which is wayyyyy earlier than we are used to starting school. They’re liking their new school and adjusting to our new surroundings well.
I’m having a blast packing their snacks and lunches (well, as much fun as a mom can have doing that sort of thing). When they get home from school they’re usually ravenous and want a light, quick snack. We have some go-to snack items in the house, but the kids usually get bored of the same old thing. So, I made a mental note to be on the lookout for some healthy snack ideas that will keep them satisfied until dinner time.
I recently came across some new favorites while I was shopping at Sam’s Club before school started. As I was browsing the aisles from great deals on bulk items, I spotted some tasty looking Lärabar Bites in Chocolate Macaroon. I also found delicious Lärabar Fruit and Nut Bars in some of the best Lärabar flavors! The Sam’s Club variety pack contains: Cashew Cookie, Apple Pie, and Peanut Butter Cookie – YUM!
I’ve been a lover of Lärabar since before I was a mother, and I had no idea they sold Lärabar products at Sam’s Club! So, I was glad to come across them! I like that their snacks are made from just a few recognizable ingredients, minimally processed, and GMO free. Basically, it’s food made from food. I definitely approve of Lärabar as a healthy snack idea for my kids, and best of all, my kids definitely approve of our new healthy snacks!
