We are so excited to work with Farm Rich and Litehouse as sponsors for this post. All opinions expressed are our own.
Hey there, Mommas! I hope this post finds you squeezing every opportunity to smile with your littles out of what is left of the summer season. With the start of school peeking around the corner, I want to reach out and give you a big ole virtual hug and let you know that you’ve totally got this! Even though situations and circumstances may be uncertain, our love and care for our littles is unfailing! I know we are all going to do our very best to prepare for whatever the next season of life has in store.
Speaking of being prepared, sometimes the best way for me to do this is to venture back in time and let the past help me plan. When I think about our back-to-school routine, Brady and I created a lot of habits that really worked well for us, so I want to be sure I keep those tried and true traditions going. One of the main things that really worked wonders for us was keeping certain staples and favorites fully stocked for him to grab when he comes home hungry in the afternoon.
Let me introduce you to a couple of Brady’s tip top go-to choices for after school snacks. First, he absolutely inhales the Mozz Sticks by Farm Rich, which is totally fine with me because they are made with 100% real mozzarella cheese and offer 12 grams of protein per serving for my growing boy! In about the same amount of time it takes him to tell me about the best thing that happened at school that day, I can also have piping hot Farm Rich Loaded Potato Skins coming out of the oven for him to feast on. It’s no surprise to me that Farm Rich is one of America’s favorite frozen snack brands, since they offer such an array of absolutely delicious and wholesome products.
Call me old-fashioned, but there is just something about serving after-school snacks or brain-break bites on these cute compartment trays. Anybody else in love with these precious school-inspired plates? They make my heart smile so big. Let me share another secret with you… Contain your condiments in a silicone cupcake liner on your compartment plate. This. Is. Life-altering!! No more marinara, ranch, or ketchup sprawling on all corners of the plate. Plus, I really think this cuts down on waste. Brady loves dipping his Farm Rich Potato Skins in Litehouse Homestyle Ranch Dressing, which happens to also be one of my favorite salad dressings (so we get it in the 20oz. family size). So since we are both so crazy for this Ranch, one thing we can agree on is that we do not let any go to waste!! There are few things worse around our house than when we run out of Litehouse Ranch – you will NOT see those moments on social media! Using silicone cupcake liners has definitely been a game changer for us, so I highly recommend giving it a shot!
