This is part of a sponsored campaign with Being Latino and Honey Maid.
However, all opinions expressed are my own.
The first thing that comes out of Maya’s mouth when she gets off the school bus is “Hey, mom! Can I have a snack?” Since she has lunch pretty early – at 11am – by 4 o’clock in the afternoon she’s running on empty.
I picked up a couple of boxes of Honey Maid GoBites at the store the other day – in both vanilla and chocolate flavors – and the girls love them! They’re crispy pockets with delicious fillings that deliver 5 grams of protein and 7 grams of whole grains in every 30 gram serving. Before I can even ask her how her day went, Maya puts a handful into a snack bag, fills her water bottle, grabs a banana, and runs back out the door, off to play basketball or go bike riding with her friends.
Maura, on the other hand, needs some downtime when she gets home from school. Sure, she also reaches for a snack, but she enjoys hers on the couch, while reading a book and sipping a glass of milk. Once Maura’s reenergized, then and only then is she ready to go play outside! Honey Maid GoBites are a snack my kids love and l feel good about giving them. Her only complaint? “Mom, you gave me more vanilla than chocolate.” Sigh! These kids are never happy! 😉
As parents, it’s so important to encourage our kids to stay active, especially in this day of video games, 24-hour children’s TV programming, and computers that tend to have many kids sitting in front of a screen for hours on end. I find that my daughters sleep better and are just generally HAPPIER kids the more active they are!

Thank you so much for sharing Honey Maid GoBites. I haven’t heard of these before but I’ll be sure to look for them at our local grocers. We love to do all kinds of activities together although the kids will stay on their games if I’m not offering other fun things to do.

These little pillows looks like a great after school snack! I agree, after a re-energizing snack and some downtime, my kids are looking for some kind of physical outlet!
We love to do all of the things you mentioned above but we also love to have our family game night. If we don’t feel like playing the games we have we do crafts together.

These snacks look yummy. My son is always hungry for a snack and he likes other honeymaid products. I’ll have to look into these.

We haven’t tried these yet. I love honeymaid crackers so I’m sure there will be a hit to. Especially, with my youngest because he loves finger fooxs.
Looks like a dessert? Looks tasty. I love your daughter.s expression on her bike. Very cute.

Rebecca Swenor says
Okay I know these are for kids but they are quite good so I just get them for me and the kids. I love them. Thanks for sharing.
Liz Mays says
I like these because they’re just sweet enough, but not overly so. That’s great for kids and adults!

Anything with a bit of chocolate inside, hits the mark. Those look so delicious.
