Imagine it’s your child’s birthday. They’re so excited! It’s also a school day, thus you’ve promised that child that you will bake and bring cupcakes to school to share with their classmates. Except you have a million other things to do, too.
What do you do?
If you’re anything like me, you buy them from the store at the very last minute. Then, remove them from the tell-tale plastic container and wrap them up like they just came out of the oven at home. Who will know, right? Promise kept and those cupcakes will taste just as good to those kids, anyway.
People take shortcuts in life every day, parents are no exception. Just like all the toys that are stuffed under my kids’ beds because there wasn’t time to put them away and company was coming over. Or all the shoes that have been thrown in a closet for the same reason. We’ll get to them later, I’m sure. I also have my kids paint outside when the weather is nice enough just so I don’t have to clean up.
With 3 kids and a week full of busy days, I’ve become a fan of those harmless shortcuts just so we can spend more time together. Whether it has to do with birthday cupcakes or shoes. It also pertains to the snacks I serve, though I still hope to make them nutritious, too. That’s why I love serving my kids Mott’s® Snack & Go.
Available in 3 applesauce flavors (Original, Strawberry, and Natural), there’s no need to feel guilty about taking a shortcut with Mott’s® Snack & Go. Especially when there’s no added sugar in the Strawberry and Natural and all three are an excellent source of vitamin C. It’s a good and honest snack.
Mott’s® Snack & Go is the nutritious applesauce kids love in a squeezable pouch they can take with them wherever they go. Mott’s is also the only applesauce brand with Box Tops for Education®, helping to support kids’ schools. Visit us on motts.com to learn more.
