Are your kids constantly hungry? Snacks play a big part of our day, especially during school and the afternoon rush between classes, sports, and dinner! It can be difficult for me to make it from lunch to dinner without snagging a bite, so I understand why they are hungry too. But I don’t want to feed them unhealthy choices, even if they are easy to grab. That’s just part of what I love about the new products from Slammers! They have five new choices in their convenient to carry and well loved pouch design. And, great news; they aren’t just for the kids, either! Let’s talk about why Slammers are the snack for back to school.
About Slammers™ Snacks
Co-founders Jennifer Carlson and Jill Vos first created their popular line-up of Slammers recipes in their kitchen in 2014 with ingredients from certified organic farms and no artificial colors or flavors. As Jen and Jill’s kids approached school age, they noticed that there were very few nutritious snacks that they could feel good about giving their children and that they knew their kids would love to eat. With a busy family between school, sports, road trips and other activities, they wanted a great tasting portable, organic snack full of nutrition. Slammers was created to simplify hectic schedules by fueling the fun for active kids with mom approved nutrition and kid approved taste.
As moms of active kids, we were always looking for simple, wholesome snacks that were fun to eat, so we created Slammers!
One of the key ingredients added to Awesome, Chill’n and Epic is Wellmune®, clinically proven to help strengthen the immune system and keep kids full of energy for any activity. In Crush and Burst, there are 7g of protein, ensuring kids are eating the essentials for growth and development.
Slammers are the snack for back to school
Their most popular flavor, Awesome is a mix of apple, strawberry, and acai! Certified organic with no artificial colors or sweeteners, a perfect balance of sweet and a hint of sour.
Burst is the Kiwi Watermelon flavor! It even includes a boost of protein to help keep kids satisfied and help support their growing bodies, too.
A delicious combination of banana and blueberry, with added immunity support. Want to know a secret? They snuck butternut squash into the pouch for an added serving of daily vegetables!
Crush is the delightful tastes of both pomegranate and grape! Another of the protein enriched flavors, making it a great snack any time.
Blend the flavors of mango, banana, and orange together for this Epic flavor. It’s also got immunity support to help keep little ones healthy!
As parents, I think most of us have the whole “three meals a day” rule covered. Even during the busy school year, we make sure our kids have delicious and mostly nutritious foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Snacks though can be another matter altogether! And this is even more so when there are activities after the school day is over. Sure, the junk food companies love to sell pre-packed single serving snacks of their chips and candy which are convenient, sure. But they mostly full of empty calories, fats, and sugar! Don’t get me wrong, as a treat every now and then, they are perfectly fine.
But if your kids are like mine, they’d want some every day. So what snack can you keep on hand, feel good about giving to your children between meals, and have them on the go? Well, Slammers are the snack for Back to School!
As a mom to several children, I know all too well the importance of being prepared. Whether this is meal planning or even following a chore schedule, those little tips and tricks can help keep you on track. So you don’t get to the end of your day and wonder why nothing got done. The same thing applies for planning for snacks, when the kids are hungry after school but there’s also homework, sports, music lessons, etc.
Created for busy moms
On some days, I feel like that Pinterest mom who cuts up the apples and oranges, makes a yogurt dip, and shares the beauty of my work with my children. Who usually gobble it all down and ask for more! But most of the time? I’m busy getting them off the bus, going through their backpacks, changing into sports gear, and heading right back out the door! Snacks are required, but I want something healthy, delicious, and it has to be easy to grab and go. All of these things describe the new Slammers flavors perfectly!
Perfect for on the go
Each flavorful pouch is made up different blends of fruits, and some even sneak in a vegetable! They don’t have to be refrigerated but my kids love them cold especially if they are busy running around. I can toss them in a lunch box, a backpack, even my purse, and head for the car! To enjoy the Slammers, they twist the cap and squeeze the pouch! There’s no mess, everything is contained in the pouch, and the lid can be twisted back on between slams!
Some of these flavors have either protein or an immunity support added to the mixture. Both the Burst and the Crush flavors have the 7 grams of protein added to their blend. Not only are the vitamins and all natural organic flavors delicious, but the added benefit of protein helps support growing bodies and active brains!
Support their immune system
Wellmune® is a leading science-based natural beta glucan derived from baker’s yeast, clinically proven to help strengthen the immune system.
No matter which flavor you, or your children, decide to enjoy, you can always be reassured to know that each one is made with certified organic ingredients. There are no synthetic colors or flavors added, and no sugars are added, either. Plus each of the five Slammers flavors are peanut and gluten free! And yes, I said it. Even YOU can enjoy these delicious and healthy snacks! I personally like the ones with the additional protein to help with my carb cravings in the afternoon.
Healthy and Tasty Snacks
Even during these interesting times, when some kids are in physical school and others are distance learning, their little bellies still demand to be fed! Why not choose a snack that’s healthy, tastes great, and is super easy to grab and go? Be sure to check with your local grocery and retail stores to find all five flavors because Slammers are the snack for back to school!
