It is our first year of school here with DS1 being in Kindergarten half days in the afternoon and I am already running out of good healthy snack options!! We do a fruit, a juice box and then usually a treat of some sort be it a granola bar, a fruit cup, cheese and crackers or a Halloween treat.
After the first few weeks of school DS1 started coming home telling me that this or that in his snack was a good healthy option but the other wasn't that great. So now I know that their snacks are being looked at and talked about which is great but... I feel that the options that I give him are just fine and while not the most healthy choice I still choose products that are better then others. I am also happy to report that DS1 always chooses to eat his healthy option as well as the treat option, Good Boy!! :)
So with this in mind I am always on the lookout for more snack options that are on the more healthy side and I noticed Yoplait Go-GURT at the store the other day. What a great option for a healthy snack that the kids will love!!! They all love yogurt but with regular packaging and then having to send spoons I had felt it was a bit to hard for a Kindergarten snack but with Go-GURT I can send the little tube and he can easily open it and squirt it into his mouth mess free! I was very happy to notice that Go-GURT has no high fructose corn syrup and has natural flavors and colours. Now I know my children will be getting a healthy snack!! I also love that you can freeze them and by lunch time they are thawed and ready to eat, keeping the rest of the lunch cool as well! There are also Tons of great flavors to choose from including Banana slit and cool cotton candy! I can see these will be a regular staple in next years lunch box as well!!!
