Well, summer is over. School started today in the ATX. My husband came home from the grocery store yesterday astonished at the lack of food in the snack aisle.
As a mother of two, I know that convenience sometimes wins over, well, everything else! But Ritz Bits and even "healthy" granola bars are often times loaded with sugar and other processed things. EVERYTHING our kids put into their bodies affect them. So let's load them up with good stuff- fruit, nuts, almond butter.
The thing is, we never know which foods will affect our particular bodies. If my son is particularly sensitive to High Fructose Corn Syrup, it may show up as signs of ADD. Even dairy and gluten can sometimes have that affect on kids. You just never know!
