Summer is winding down and so are the temperatures... We love to take the kids outside so they can burn off their overabundance of energy. I've also been trying to fuel my kids with better snacks, such as the CLIF Kid Zbar®, which are made with organic ingredients, have no high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors or synthetic preservatives. These bars have important nutrients for active kids, which I LOVE!
To get the kids outside, we will sometimes plan a quick and simple picnic dinner. I'll make a long sandwich and cut it up into small slices we can all share, pack fruit, cheese and crackers. Then, I'll let the kids play frisbee, football or they'll just roam around and explore the outdoors. They're usually ready for a snack before we head home and lately we've been packing along the CLIF Kid Zbars. These also make great snacks for school snack time or before their cross country meets!
CLIF Kid makes nutritious snacks from organic ingredients that are specially-crafted for kids’ developing taste buds and active lives. CLIF Kid snacks feature nutrients that active kids need in flavors they crave, such as Chocolate Chip and Iced Oatmeal Cookie.
CLIF Kid is dedicated to reclaiming play. They're encouraging boys and girls everywhere to get back outside, push their boundaries and feed their adventures. I always keep an extra frisbee and a soft football in the back of my trunk at all times.
Balanced and active play lays the foundation for a skilled, healthy, resilient and successful society.
Play is disappearing at home, in school and in communities. 70% of moms played outside when they were kids, 31% of their kids play outside today. My kids would rather sit on the couch and play on their electronics, but I encourage them to get outside to play.
