In our house, we don’t have just after school snacking. We have weekend snacking, soccer practice snacking, road trip snacking – and with three kids all wanting something, we desperately needed some kind of organization. I wanted something that let them be in control a bit more and make the decision on what they want to snack on, but left ME in control since I do the grocery shopping.
Every time we visit Kroger, I like to restock our basket. Either because something is on sale or I just want some variety to what we have in there. Plus, no one wants to run out!
This is the easiest snack station that you can do.
You need a basket – whatever fits into the space you have. I went ahead and did something kind of big to keep in a lower cabinet. It comfortably fits 40 packs of these Ritz crackers, Barnum’s Animal Crackers, etc snacks.
You can just dump in your snacks or organize. I put the savory on one side and the sweet on the other. I also added a few snack-size baggies of dried pineapple and mango, for variety. Use the same concept in the fridge and designate a basket for yogurt, string cheese, and fresh fruit ready to go!
Help your kids understand these snacks are theirs, and that they can choose their own when it’s snack time. They look the freedom, and you aren’t bothered with the four hundred “Can I have a snack?” or “Can you get me a snack?” questions every day!
We shop at Kroger all the time (hello, ClickList!) and I know they carry the products I, and the kids, love. We can get everything we need there, including these multipacks!
Feeding a team? 20 packs in a box is an AWESOME find for any sports mom in charge of snacks! Run in and find these multipack snacks in the cracker and cookie aisles. Plenty of variety for everyone!
