Kids and snacks are like peanut butter and jelly – they go hand in hand.
There is not an hour that goes by that my kids are not asking for snacks. I could spend hours in the kitchen preparing the healthiest, tastiest, most mouth-watering meal, and 10 minutes later my kids are asking for a snack. Sometimes I think that when they’re asking for a snack what they’re really asking for is candy or some type of dessert. Whatever the reason, the perpetual sound of, “Mommy, can I have a snack” is on a constant loop in our home. Don’t get me wrong, I cook well-balanced meals three times a day for my family and I prepare healthy snacks to hold them over from one meal to the next.
However, their appetite is insatiable and sometimes the organic granola bars I so lovingly made for them just won’t cut it.
We stock up on groceries every Sunday, and by Thursday, our pantry is near empty. This is where Amazon Prime Pantry comes in. I just click my way through some mom-approved but kid-friendly snacks and they’re delivered to my home before my kids can say, “Mom can I have a snack?” OK, maybe not that fast, but fast enough.
I’ve rounded up the best Amazon Pantry buys that have satisfied my kids’ incessant need for snacks yet doesn’t ruin their appetite for mealtime.
