This post about healthy snacks for tweens is brought to you by Cuties. The content and opinions expressed below are that of close to home.
The holidays are filled with sweets and candy. In order to not have it around the house for me to consume, I would often give the kids extra sweets in their lunch box or cookies for an after school snack. Well, the holidays are over, the candy is out of the house but the kids still want something sweet. (I do to but I am not a tween that burns calories while sleeping). What is the perfect solution for healthy tween snacks that are sweet but nutritious too? Cuties are the perfect snack to give when the kids or myself, are craving something sweet. If you close your eyes while eating one, you would literally think you were eating a candy orange they are so sweet and juicy.
They are the perfect size to stuff a few in the lunch box, sports bag or in the car.
My kids are old enough that they can peel them on their own which means no excuses for the fruit being smooshed in the lunch box. When they are packing their own lunches, Cuties are an easy fruit choice for them.
Using an edible market make these fun edible lunch notes. Tweens are on the cusp of not wanting us to say these things but we can still get away with an edible note they can just peel away so their friends don’t see.
As a mom, sitting at her desk blogging while the kids are at school, I choose to eat a Cutie to satisfy any sweet craving.
Do you have kids that are not that easily swayable? Have them check out the free Cuties song download that is now available. The Cuties Song and Cuties Music Video are a great tool to encourage kids to have fun while eating healthy.
