Last month I shared some of my favorite baseball snack ideas for the kids after the game is over. Kraft SnackFUNS were my most recent discovery and have been great for the kids during fall baseball. But sometimes this mom needs a great snack too! Thanks to Kraft Snackfulls, I’ve got some great snack options too!
I’m partnering with Kraft to share about how Kraft Trios have become a staple when I reach for a snack during my busy days.
KRAFT SNACKFULLS AND BUSY MOM LIFE
Like a lot of moms I know, my days are busy. Having two kids only doubles the things our family is involved in and I know it will just get busier as they get older.
Working from home gives me some flexibility but it also means I find myself tempted to do things like snack all through the day. When I was teaching, I only had the food I took to work with you. Now that I’m home, it’s easy to grab a little something and then another little something. Before you know it, I’ve snacked the day away.
I also find myself snacking when I’m sitting at the waiting in the car rider line, sitting at the dance studio, and cheering the kids on as they round the bases.
So many opportunities to snack. This year I’m on a mission to make better choices when it comes to snacks. So, I’ve been on the hunt for snack options that are big enough to feel satisfying and that also have the protein I’ve found helps me stay satisfied as I cross things off my TO-DO list.
After trying the Kraft SnackFUNS with the kids, I knew I wanted to try the Kraft Snackfulls.
WHY KRAFT SNACKFULLS MAKE A GREAT MOM SNACK
I’m the first to admit that when I’m craving a snack, I’ll reach for a sweet treat first. I have a rampant sweet tooth. So lately I’ve been trying to make better choices.
But I’ve also found that ignoring that bit of sweet leads me to grab another snack. It’s about balance and that’s why I’ve been enjoying the Kraft Snackfulls.
My favorite thing about them is that they’re a great sized snack. They have 50% more food than the 1.5 oz Kraft Snack Trios and when I open them, I feel like I’ve got a snack I can really enjoy.
Each variety includes one of four different snacks mixes. Each one offers a blend of energy matched with a simple indulgence. It’s the balance that I’ve found works best for me when it comes to snacking.
Everyone can find a mix that they enjoy:
- Monterey Jack Cheese, Dried Apples, & Granola Clusters
- Extra Sharp White Cheddar Cheese, Dried Cranberries, & Semisweet Chocolate
- Colby and Monterey Jack Cheeses, Semisweet Chocolate, & Banana Chips
- Sharp Yellow Cheddar Cheese, Dried Cherries, & Semisweet Chocolate
My favorites are the mixes with chocolate because I can get the savory and the bit of sweet all in one snack. Having the combination of protein and indulgences in the snack mixes makes them a great option for me.
I’ve found that when I grab one to snack on, I don’t wander into the kitchen to find another snack. If I’m out and about, I don’t dig through my bag looking for something more to munch on.
KRAFT SNACKFULLS ON THE GO
Besides the great combos in the snack mixes, the other thing I’m loving is how they can go pretty much anywhere I go. I can great one from the refrigerator, put it in my purse (or the cooler if we’re headed to baseball) and I’ve got a snack I can count on.
Some of the places I’ve enjoyed Kraft Snackfulls so far include:
- Baseball practice (at the fields and at the batting cages)
- Baseball lesson
- Afternoon dance class
- Morning dance class
- After a doctor’s appointment (where I had to fast before so I was needing a good snack by the time I got back to my car!)
- In the car driving across town (driving across Houston is almost like taking a road trip!)
- Waiting in car rider line after school
These days if I think I’m going to need a snack before we head out, I grab one and put it in my purse. I like to be prepared! And I like it to be easy so they’ve worked great for me.
My biggest challenge is fending off my kids now that they’ve also discovered Kraft Snackfulls!
