Store Bought Snacks

We have a new "page" for our blog! Check out Store Bought Snacks!
We added this page because, well, we all buy stuff from the store.  And deciding what snacks to buy (or not buy) for your kids can be overwhelming.  You want something nutritious and tasty; your kid wants anything with a Disney character on the box. We know... us too.

Many of the snacks that have become staples in our families started as ideas we got from other moms. In fact, one of our favorite things about play groups (besides chatting with grown ups) is seeing what snacks other kids eat. 

So, we designed our Store Bought Snacks page to be like a virtual play-date where we can share the good, store-bought stuff our kids snack on. We won't lie: some days, our kids snack on cookies or marshmallows. But we try, mostly, to provide them with snacks that have nutritional value. When we find a snack that we feel good about AND that they like, we will post it here

Our disclaimer is this: we try hard not to judge other moms, and we ask that you try hard to not judge us.  We aren't dietitians and we don't know every thing about every food. We are just trying to improve what we feed our kids. We spend a considerable amount of time and money buying and trying different snacks... and when we find something that we approve of and that our kids like, we are excited!  We check nutrition labels, but we don't claim these foods (or ourselves) to be perfect!  Of course, we encourage you to do your own research and only buy the foods that are a good fit for your family.  But we hope this can be a helpful starting place to give you several ideas of store bought snacks. 

Love, Kim & Lauren
