We just had a week of band camp.
That was 5 solid (long) days from 8:30-5:00 of marching, playing and drills. I had one hungry teenager. Of course, back to school time is around the corner and with it comes after school activities, school work and, you guessed it, hungry kids!
We are so busy. With four children and three of them in different schools (and one at home), I am coordinating pick-up times, different after school schedules and meets. Cross country meets, that is. (Not to mention, basketball, piano lessons and band competitions.) Our four year old gets a little overwhelmed riding along to all of his siblings activities!
I found it extremely important to have great meals and snacks to help get our day started right and to fuel us through out the day. I especially find grab and go snacks not only important but a necessity. As a stay at home mom, cost savings is important as well.
This time of year is so costly. I don’t know about you, but school registrations, sport fees and school supplies add up to quite a big bill around here. I do a lot to cut costs when I grocery shop. Making homemade snacks is a great way to save money.
The other day, I made Great Grains Cookies With Raisins and Pecans. The cookie is made with Post Great Grains Raisins, Dates and Pecans. I have found Post cereals have a great variety of cereals to choose from and are a great value for hungry (and growing) families.
We enjoy Post cereals for breakfast and we often times will eat them as an anytime snack. Post Fruity Pebbles is a favorite around here and the Berry Colossal Crunch comes in such a large bag, it is great for a large family. Post cereals have something for the whole family. They have a wide variety of different cereals that will satisfy everyone.
I bought these cereals at Walmart.
They are easily found in the cereal aisle.
