If you are like me, you are a mom on the go. When you are on the
go, you need to plan ahead, diapers, water bottles, extra change of
clothes if your child is potty training, snacks, snacks and more
snacks. No one wants to hear "I'm hungry" while in the car on the
way to an after-school activity, right? Let's face it, you nibble
on their snacks, too. (I know you do, because I do, too!)
If you don't think ahead, you are left buying unhealthy vending
machine snacks. You can easily pre-cut an apple and grab a packet
of peanut butter (or Sunbutter if you child has a peanut allergy).
How hard is that? Yet we just don't make the time to do it because
we have become a convenience society. It is quicker to throw a
dollar into that vending machine or go to a drugstore and buy a
"glorified candy bar." (You may know them as "energy or protein
And did you know us Americans are snacking almost an extra 600
calories per day? That is one meal extra per day and some of these
snacks are coming from sugar drinks. (In case you didn't know, we
consume an average of 140 pounds of sugar per year)
That is why I created the Snack Smart Solutions
App. It has more than 40 snacks that are all balanced according
to protein, fiber and GOOD fats. The foods are combined to
synergistically create energy in the body when you need it the
most. The snacks are within 150-225 calories that help curb
cravings and balance blood sugars.
If you are a young mom, keeping up with those tots of yours is
important so you are not crashing either. Have a kid in
college? They will benefit and appreciate not having to think of a
healthy snack idea (in fact send them a care package so they can
have it on hand!)
Gluten free? No prob, most of the snacks are naturally gluten
free. There are paleo, vegan and vegetarian options, too.
There are no excuses to not have Snack Smart Solutions on your
smartphone. The most important question I know you may be thinking,
is there chocolate? Yes there is! Who does not like a little treat
when they are snacking? Just don't make a habit out of it.
