Have Kid, Must Feed



My boys are starting school in less than two weeks, and trust me, I am not looking forward to waking up before 8:30 am. All you people with nannies = not fair. 

Both my kids have always been super picky eaters. The younger one, not as much, but still, quite picky. I mean, my six year old won't even try ice cream. Because it's "cold." He also picks his boogers and eats them so his dining priorities are questionable.

I have always stressed balanced eating in my house. That isn't to say it always goes over well, but I stress it nonetheless. Threatening my precious innocent little angels with statements such as "if you don't eat your fruits and veggies, you will grow up into a green mushy blob of squishiness" and "eat this right now or I will smash it into your face and make you wear it tomorrow to school!"

Ok so that last one was a bit of an exaggeration but you get my point. (And when they ask me why I get to eat cold pizza for breakfast? I tell them because I'm an adult and I can. Which is my favorite response to basically every question they ask. Often followed up by a "so there." They get their maturity from me.)

Anyway, and as I mentioned above, my kids start school soon. Knowing me, I will probably chuck some cheerios in their general direction before they leave in the morning which will result in them probably being on the verge of starvation when they get home in the afternoon. Which means I will need to have some quality, quick easy snacks on hand for them to devour.

Enter one of my personal favorite childhood snacks, Bagel Bites. Just like when you pass on your old baptism ensemble to your first born, sharing with them a food staple that gave you the warm fuzzies when you were young is just as (if not more) awesome. And considering Bagel Bites are made with real cheese and that they mix their bagel dough from scratch every day on site, using high-quality ingredients, it's the perfect after-school snack to feed my kids.

Oh, and zero grams of trans fat per serving ain't too shabby either.
