Putting on the Ritz. Hunger pangs anyone? That’s how I feel every day at about 10:30 in the morning since my day starts sadly at about 5:45 am with my early birds. My kids seriously ask for lunch at 10 AM . And on occassion my 4 yr old has requested (make that BEGGED!) for lunch as early as 8:55 am. I force them to wait until at least 11:15 but I profess I can relate to their hunger pangs -since we all eat our super huge breakfast before 6 AM we are indeed ravenous come mid morning!
What are your favorite tricks to cure the mid morning or mid afternoon snack time urges? I usually try to stick to fruit for the kids and I. Raisins, bananas, strawberries, blueberries, or sliced apples and peaches. And for those times when fruit just doesn’t seem to fit our schedule – we’re at the mall, park, or just out of the fresh stuff, we opt for crackers or pretzels and of course the kids standby – goldfish.
We were able to sample this very filling and rich snack time treat – a cracker with a twist, the Ritz Crackerfuls. My favorite flavor was the new Cheddar Cheese and Bacon. Delish! Each Crackerful is made with 6 grams of whole grains and real cheese too. Love how they are wrapped and packaged individually – (limiting me from eating a zillion since I’ll only pack one!) My picky kids- as expected prefer their traditional reduced fat Ritz crackers but I felt like I was indulging in a little delicacy with these savory salty snacks. Definitely Classy Mommy Approved!
