Dare Bear Paws Crunchy Crackers

When it comes to easy access snacks, crackers are an automatic healthy snack choice in our house. Our only concern when buying products like crackers, cookies etc that may eventually end up on a lunch is to make sure they are nut free. Our daughters school is nut-free and we, like any other parent abide by the no-nut rule for safeties sake.

We had the opportunity to try out the new Dare Bear Paws Crunchy Crackers in cheddar cheese!

Fun meets crunch in these baked crackers, shaped like the original Bear Paws cookies, that are made with real cheddar! Perfect in lunch-boxes or as a snack at home, the whole family is sure to love every bite!

We occasionally buy Bear Paws cookies which our kids love, so we knew they would enjoy the new Dare Bear Paws Crunchy crackers too!

We are happy that there are companies like Dare who care about the health and well being of our families by putting pride into quality food products.

It’s back to school time and what better way to get back into it than post about one of lunches favourite things, the Juice Box!

Juice boxes and kids go hand in hand. From a quick drink on a long trip to packing them in school lunches, juice boxes are simple, preservative free and can be stored in the pantry, refrigerate at  your own taste! Juice boxes have been a convenient way to quench your childs thirst!

From A Motherhood Experience: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO JUICE BOXES!

Beautiful Day.

Today is one of those days where the weather is wonderful and you should really be out and about enjoying it before the cold fall and winter seasons come back to haunt us. Unfortunately for me, other than going for an errand earlier and picking up DD later on, I’m pretty much house bound for today.

Doing laundry before it piles up as school begins next week for DD. Ds is resting at the moment so I’m able to slip away and get a little writing done.

This morning DH encountered the daycare director. She wanted to know if we planned to keep DD in daycare after her class in Kindergarten or have her bus home by 11am.

DH and I have been running it through our brains all week, we decided it would be enough with three hours of learning. It isn’t the exact same environment and there are elements such as homework involved which right now she has none of only being in the preschool program, preparing her for what comes next week in elementary school.

Tomorrow we are running errands to finish preparing for Dd’s birthday party which is in 3 days, the grown up party in 3 days as well as school on Monday. I think my brain is doing more thinking than anything though. I know it will all be fine just before school jitters.

Well off to finish my laundry.

Keep dreaming…
