“Snack Simply” This Summer with Ore-Ida Bagel Bites Brand
Bagel Bites wants us to make make snack time more meaningful this summer. The “Pledge to Snack Simply” reinforces the importance of simple, wholesome goodness at snack time while raising money to promote wholesome nutrition in youth programs across America.
To take the pledge visit www.snacksimplypledge.com and commit to a few small steps that will make a big impact on our children’s daily snack-time nutrition. With each pledge taken, Bagel Bites will donate $1 to Boys & Girls Clubs of America… up to $50,000.
The pledge asks parents to stick to three principles for snacking this summer:
Keep it simple – choose simple, easy-to-prepare snacks with wholesome ingredients
Keep it tasty – serve snacks kids will love to encourage lots of smiles around the table
Keep it fun – take the time to connect with your child and incorporate some simple, family-friendly activities during the daily snack-time routine
With four kids home for the summer my kitchen is almost constantly in use. I try hard to keep healthy, easy and simple snack options available for the children to choose from… usually fresh fruits and vegetables, graham crackers, nuts and the like. On occasion we actually get into the freezer for a little more variety and fun.
My kids are no exception… they love a good snack. When we were offered the opportunity to try Bagel Bites they were thrilled to be the test subjects. These guys would live on pizza if I let them, and pizza made on tiny bagels makes it even more fun to eat!
Bagel Bites is committed to providing wholesome choices kids will love. Their frozen pizza snacks are made with simple, recognizable ingredients like toasted bagels, tomato sauce and real mozzarella cheese. Just recently they even incorporated whole grain to the entire line of frozen pizza snacks.
The “other” pizza snacks available on the market are made with cheese substitute, pre-fried, have a higher sodium content, do not contain whole grains and contain trans fat. Bagel bites are baked, are lower in calories and fat, and have NO trans fat per serving which makes them the smarter snack choice.
We like to make snack time fun and simple here year round. I like to let the kids help pick their foods and sometimes prepare them with me as it helps form that “connection” with your food. I think that compliments the enjoyment of your snack/meal.
Bagel Bites come in a crisper tray for microwave use. The kids like to help put them in the microwave and push the buttons. They are especially yummy straight from the toaster oven. The kids take them off the crisper tray and put them on a cookie sheet and slide it into the toaster oven.
On rare occasions I let them take their snack into the living room for a little “picnic” around the coffee table. Bagel Bites seemed like a good occasion to do just so. As you can see, they were grinning ear to ear and I wish I had taken video of them butt dancing on their stools.
