Fuel for Active Kids -- #QuakerEpicAdventures

March was a crazy month for our family. Nutty started gymnastics on Mondays on top of swimming on Tuesdays and church on Wednesdays. Hubby and I shoot in a pool league on Thursdays. Uff-da (as we say in Minnesota)! I'm making some changes for this month!

Unfortunately, there was a period of two weeks where gymnastics and swimming both fell on Monday evening (until I could reschedule swimming to Tuesdays). Nutty would get home from school at 4:15, change clothes, grab a quick snack, and head to swimming at 5:00, immediately after swimming and a shower, we'd head to gymnastics at 6:00. We didn't eat dinner till around 7:30pm!

Quaker Big Chewy Granola Bars

So what did I give Nutty for a snack to keep her fueled for swimming and gymnastics? Granola bars of course! Quaker® Big Chewy Granola Bars to be exact.  They're bigger than most granola bars and with 14g of whole grains they gave her the fuel she needed to make it through till dinner.  

Unfortunately, the box we received to try for this post did not last long in my house as the whole family eats Quaker® Chewy Granola Bars like they are going out of style.  Fortunately, the new bigger Big Chewy Granola Bars were more filling so I (I mean Hubby, no really, I mean the girls) only needed to eat one at a time.  At Nutty's request, I quickly bought another box and reserved it for her after school snack.  (Then I bought more boxes for me, Hubby, and Tottie to snack on through the day)

I never know what my days will have in store for me and my family, so keeping Quaker® Big Chewy Granola Bars on hand help make sure we have the fuel necessary to get the day. Now the Quaker® Big Chewy Granola Bars have chocolate drizzled on top and are 60% bigger – perfect for my hungry family!
