This school year, all three of my kids are going back to school. Now, I know that that is normal in most households but for us, we’ve been homeschooling on & off for the last 13-ish years so it’s a big step for us all. My oldest is 18 and started a college class this past summer and will continue at the local college this fall. My other 2 kids, 14 & 9, will be heading to a local charter school. Getting back into the groove of having everyone ready to go, lunches packed & backpacks ready in the morning is going to be something we’re going to have to get used to!
One of the biggest challenges I see is packing lunches for the younger two kids. They have to always bring their own lunch, as there isn’t a cafeteria to buy lunch from. They’re used to being able to go to the kitchen and get fruit, cheese, crackers and pretty much anything else in the pantry if they get hungry. I want to make sure that they get enough to eat at school for lunch and snack & stay full until they get home in the afternoon.
One of the ways I plan to do that is by packing Nature Valley XL Chewy Granola Bars. These delicious bars are 50% bigger than regular Nature Valley Bars and help to fuel your body and satisfy your hunger.
My daughter is 14 and is picky as can be about eating. One day she likes a certain food & that’s all she’ll eat. A couple days later, she doesn’t really like it anymore. It’s annoying to say the least because it’s so hard to food shop for her. With Nature Valley XL Chewy Granola Bars, we can find a flavor she likes and she can either take it in her lunch bag for snack at school or eat it for breakfast. There are plenty of different flavors for her to choose from: Sweet & Salty Chocolate Nut & Seed, Sweet & Salty Peanut, Sweet & Salty Pretzel, Peanut & Chocolate, Protein Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate & Protein Mixed Nuts.
With my oldest son taking some classes at the local college, there’s going to be some down time in between classes when he needs something quick to eat. If you have an 18-year-old boy, you know that they tend to eat A LOT and often. He’s going to need something that he can carry with him, it easy and quick to eat and something that will keep him full. Nature Valley XL Chewy Granola Bars can do all of those things, plus he loves the taste!
You can find Nature Valley XL Chewy Granola Bars at Walmart next to the regular Nature Valley bars! What flavor would you love to try first?
