This week, while on vacation with my crew, I broke all the rules about meals and snacks for my kids. We had sandwiches and fruit of course, but I said ‘yes’ to all the things I would normally say ‘no’ to. There were cheese balls and cookies, sugary breakfasts, and juice boxes galore… pool snack, afternoon snack, bedtime snack, and all the snacks in-between!
But, I also learned that the same applies to Momma, especially on vacation. A hungry Momma is a cranky Momma. And she might get a massive headache- ask me how I know!
I quickly realized that packing snacks for outings and pool afternoons means also packing a snack or two for myself! And while I’m all for the ‘sometimes’ foods on occasion, I’m past the age of being able to indulge in a week of eating junk and not pay for it later. The key is finding a snack that feels like a treat, but actually fills me up. This week that treat was Fiber One’s new Cheesecake Salted Caramel Bar. (Grab your own box with this great coupon at Publix!)
The Salted Caramel Cheesecake Bar was the perfect one-handed poolside snack- I could eat it quickly while buckling and unbuckling life jackets, adjusting goggles, serving the children’s snacks, and opening juice boxes. And I didn’t feel like I was missing out on all the cookies and treats the kids were eating! My snack was just as delicious as their junk food!
