Recharge your routine with new snacks

(BPT) - Are you looking for options that can help you choose more wholesome, better-for-you snacks for you and your family to enjoy as you begin the new year?

This can be a busy time for everyone, with school and work back in full swing, in addition to new sports, events and extracurricular activities starting up. You may also still be playing catch-up on tasks and errands long after the holiday season has been in the rear-view mirror. Overloaded schedules during this season can make it even harder to come up with new ideas for lunch time and snack time.

When life is hectic and it seems like everyone is on the go every day of the week, you often need to find options that are convenient and delicious, yet made from ingredients that you can feel good about - like whole grains and real fruit.

Challenges with snacks for families

Planning, shopping for and prepping a variety of wholesome snacks and lunch items for your families every day can be time-consuming and inconvenient - and it can be even more frustrating when you find that many of the foods you have packed for your kids are going bad in their lunchboxes or backpacks.

One option many families are turning to these days is the bento-box approach, which lets you fill a reusable box that has multiple compartments with various items of your choice, helping to keep them both separate and fresh for kids. The hardest part is still choosing items with ingredients you can get behind and that your kids will actually eat and enjoy.

Try new lunch and snacktime solutions

You can increase the likelihood your children will eat more of their lunches and snacks by involving them in the process. Offer them a few choices that you approve ahead of time, and let them pack their own snack bags and lunchboxes once you feel they are old enough to participate. Being involved in the decision-making process may make kids feel more empowered - and they can even have fun at the same time.

Another way to revamp your snacking routine this time of year is by trying new products created with busy families in mind. Nature's Bakery recently launched their new Fig Bar Minis - a 100-calorie single-pack version of their family favorite twin-pack snacks in tasty Raspberry and Blueberry flavors that everyone in your household is bound to love.
