Try these easy to make Protein Packed Snack packs for when your family is on the go to keep them fueled up and ready to go!
The life of a mom with kids in school and sports is on the go! From the time we wake up in the morning until I lay down at night, it’s go, go, go! Honestly, it is kinda crazy but I LOVE IT! This whole new stage of parenting is different from the last stage of parenting newborn and toddlers for years – plus having an in home daycare that required me to care for LOTS of newborns and toddlers over the years! While that was awesome, hard and amazing while it was happening this new stage with school-age kids is awesome, hard and amazing, too!
While we’re on the go, I struggle with meals and snacks. We have to eat but I don’t like to always grab to-go food from the concession stands or snacks from the convenience store. I know that getting our energy and fuel from food is KEY to a healthy happy family! AND we need our fuel to get through these crazy days! So, instead of reaching for a candy bar when I’m picking up from school and dropping off for ball practice, I pack my own snacks for me and the kids. It’s the best way to make sure we are ready to go!
One of our favorites is a high protein snack that keeps us going, like this:
This is an amazing snack pack (one for me and one for the kids) that has Jack Link’s jerky, cheese, and almonds. This little snack packs a huge punch when it comes to fueling up! These protein snack packs are a great way to “hack the hangry” in your family until you are ready for a full meal.
Did you know that Jack Link’s jerky are an awesome way to get in the protein you need to fill you up with 12g of protein per serving?! It is! AND it really tastes great! Low in fat, sugar and carbs, you can feel good about snacking on this family favorite! Jack Link’s jerky comes in several flavors the whole family will love! Our favorites are the regular, black pepper and turkey. YUM!
I like to pack my snack pack with Jack Link’s jerky turkey, real cheddar cheese and almonds. WOW! There’s a protein snack with a punch! I make the same for the kids but use the regular flavored Jack Link’s jerky, white cheddar cheese cut into shapes for fun and also almonds. They love it!
Making sure your family has the very best to fuel their body plus making sure YOU have the very best to keep them going is so important when you’re on the go! A great way to make sure that happens is to make up these snack packs with Jack Link’s!
You can buy all the varieties at Kroger which will also be on sale soon! Thanks to Jack Link’s for partnering with us for today’s conversation!
