As a mom, I feel like I’m constantly being asked for a snack. We will be eating breakfast, and before they’re even done they’re asking me what they can have for snack. Seriously, people???
I got stuck in a rut of what to give them for a snack so I finally decided to make a list. I hope this list gives you some ideas when you’re struggling to come up with yet another snack. They’re all labeled according to which fuel type they fall under for those of you eating the Trim Healthy Mama way.
