Time is such a valuable commodity these days. Everyone wants more and there never seems to be enough. Ask any busy mom out there and she will tell you what she really wants… “5 more minutes!” or “just some time to myself” or “more time with my family.” But the school year, even with the perks of getting us all back on schedule, also comes with a load of extracurricular activities. We get the kids up for school, send them off and then, before we know it, we are shuttling them around to soccer, piano lessons, dance, tae kwon do, etc. all in an effort to expand their horizons and cultivate talents.
I know these activities are good, amazing even, but they do take a lot of time! I usually pick my daughter up straight from school on dance days in order to get her to her dance studio on time. After a long day at school she is definitely in need of a snack! I hate to admit that I have, on occasion, gone through a drive-thru in order to grab her something quickly. But we’ve now found a new favorite snack!
Now I throw one of the HORMEL™ NATURAL CHOICE™ snacks into her dance bag as I’m leaving to pick her up from school and she loves them! They are carefully crafted snacks which include bite-sized pieces of 100% natural meat and cheese— all minimally processed, without artificial preservatives or ingredients. The fact that the meat and cheese are 100% Natural* and contains no preservatives makes this time-deficient mama happy! I also love that she is getting a good amount of protein as she heads into her physically demanding dance class. And bonus? A yummy little chocolate treat is in each package as well!
I no longer have to feel guilty about grabbing her fast food or throwing in a bag of highly processed crackers or chips from home. She also likes all of the flavors so we mix it up each day!
They come in FOUR different yummy varieties:
- Oven-Roasted Turkey with mild white Cheddar cheese and chocolate covered pretzels
- Honey Ham with mild white Cheddar cheese and chocolate covered pretzels
- Oven-Roasted Turkey with Pepper Jack cheese and chocolate covered blueberries
- Oven-Roasted Chicken with mild white Cheddar cheese and chocolate covered almonds
My son was going on a hike with his scout troop to do one of the many 14-ers here in Colorado. The hike was going to be about 3-4 hours. We filled up his Camelback backpack with water and then he asked if he could take a couple of the HORMEL™ NATURAL CHOICE™ snacks with him as well. I said “of course!” He threw them in his backpack and enjoyed them as he hiked the 14,000+ feet!
