I'm a dance mom. There, I said it. Okay, maybe not like those dance moms you see on TV...the ones who sit rigidly through their childrens' modern dance classes, their hawk eyes peeled for any little minutiae of a mistake that they can rehash with their child over and over in the parking lot while the sun sets. But I am a mom. A mom who used to dance and enjoy dancing. A dance mom. And now my two lovely daughters dance and enjoy dancing. Ballet, Jazz, and Musical Theatre. It makes me proud to see them practice and perform.

The only real drawback is the time we spend in the car, shuttling to and from the dance studio. With two girls, and five dance classes a week...we're lucky the studio isn't far! Being on the go during those weekday afternoons means that we have to be quick with our after-school routine on dance days. 

The only thing more annoying than "What?! We're having that for dinner?" is the "We don't have any good snacks."

The girls gave the new Honey Maid Go Bites the after school snack test last week, and they were a hit! Even their baby brother loved them. Seriously, he stands in front of the cabinet, pointing up, and grunting small manly baby grunts.

I use little plastic containers to fill up with a few snacks before it's time to leave, so there's no rushing around or frantic tossing things together at the last minute. Stashing them in a cute metal snack station on our kitchen sideboard makes everything easy.

These are more of a treat than my kids normally get for snacks, so we add fresh fruit or veggies. Paired with a water bottle, banana, carrot sticks, raisins, or some apple slices, my girls are fueled up and ready for an hour or two of dance before dinner.

We keep the snack station on hand for those "grab and go" days. Making up the little snack containers beforehand also keeps portions under control. (I'm guilty of over-snacking by eating right out of the box so it's really more for me...who said moms can't enjoy a snack now and then too?)

As a mom, what do I love about our new snack?
  • No high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors
  • 5 grams for protein per serving
  • 7 grams of whole grain per serving

And my kids just plain love the taste.

We're happy to have a fun new snack to make dance afternoons a little bit easier!
