My Big One is good at sports.  He’s a natural athlete.  I’m not sure where he got it because I don’t like sports, and his dad isn’t particularly coordinated.  He’s impressive, and I’m often in awe of his abilities.   After a number of years of playing many different sports, he’s settled on basketball as his primary sport, and spends hours each week playing.   Now that he’s a tween and working out so much, he’s always hungry.  ALWAYS!  We’re going through 3 to 4 gallons of milk each week and about 3 loaves of bread.  Trying to find a filling, delicious and portable afternoon snack for him to carry to sports can be a hassle.  His usual preferred snacks are coconut water and some dairy product, such as string cheese or yogurt.  Right now, he’s been loving and consuming huge quantities of Dannon Danimals® Smoothies.  He grabs a couple of those little bottles as we dash out the door to his practices.

Guest Post at Ducks ‘N A Row: Nutter Butter Kiss Acorns

I have the great privilege to be guest posting this fun fall kids’ snack treat over at Ducks ‘N A Row.  This is a quick and easy project that you can make with your preschool to school-aged kiddos.  I hope you’ll stop by and see how to make these darling and fun snack treats!  In fact, I think this is the first project involving sweets that doesn’t require any baking, which is even better!
