5 Snack Ideas to Keep Kids Focus Throughout The Day


Kellogg's Raisin Bran with fresh blueberries1. Have a simple bowl of cereal with fruit and milk – This is probably the easiest way to get a healthy and tasty snack on the books. Just the afternoon, I had a mug of Kellogg’s Raisin Bran with fresh blueberries and almond milk. My kids were all over me, they thought that it was cool that I was eating out of a mug and asked if they could do the same. Not a problem, I love when my kids are asking for snacks like this!


2. Grab a Nutri Grain bar – These are such an easy, on-the-go snack idea. These cereal bars have become a favorite in my house, we always pack a few when we’re going out for the day.
