There are lots of things that stressed me out about Ayva starting school this year. My number one worry wasn’t about whether or not she’d like her teacher, or if she would make friends. Nope, the thing that kept me up at night was way more important than any of that. My biggest worry was about whether or not she’d eat her lunch every day. I just imagined my baby slumped over in her chair, no energy, unable to concentrate due to hunger. Fortunately, it was a pretty ridiculous fear, because there are tons of healthy snacks and foods that will keep Ayva energized and focused through the day. On top of that list? California Raisins!
Perfect for school and after school, California Raisins has totally been a lifesaver for us on many occasions. Ayva was first introduced to raisins as “sun candy”, and the natural sweetness certainly helps them to earn that nickname. The only thing that gives them away is the fact that there’s no fat, cholesterol or added sugar! Plus, raisins offer 9% of your daily fiber and potassium, and 6% of your daily iron (per quarter cup serving). A handful of raisins can help children feel more full than eating cookies or other unhealthy snacks. The best part of California Raisins for us is that they are super easy to pack in lunches. See what I mean? I was totally stressing for no reason!
Ayva and I were able to attend a fun #SnackToSchoolParty a couple of weeks ago, and learned more about California Raisins, and got some great ideas for fun, easy snacks! Raisin muffins, trail mix and peanut butter apples are perfect yummy treats for hungry kids.
