School starts for our kids next week. This week we are still enjoying the end of Summer. We even have a road trip planned tomorrow to 6 Flags! Whenever we take a road trip, we are sure to pack snacks for our journey. It saves us time stopping every time hunger hits and cuts down on crabby kids. Dannon® Danimals® Smoothies are something we pack for road trips because they are compact, delicious and curb my kids hunger. We always have a travel cooler stocked with them when we hit the road. Tomorrow is no different.
Another great time of day for Dannon® Danimals® is after school. My kids come home famished. It’s too early for dinner and I don’t want them to eat too much that will spoil their appetite. We found Dannon® Danimals® paired with fresh fruit and vegetables along with some crackers is perfect. It is so easy to do this for your kids and have it prepared a few minutes before they get home.
I was recently in Walmart and saw the Collectors Edition 12-pack of Dannon® Danimals® Smoothies in Strawberry/Cotton Candy flavors. I picked those up along with another 12 pack of Banana Split/Strawberry Explosion. The little bottes are so cute with the different athletes on them!
An easy way to have a great snack to fuel your kids after school is to get out whatever fresh fruit and veggies you have. I had pears, baby carrots, white seedless grapes and bananas. You will also want to add some crackers and those can be whatever your kids like. I used saltines and graham crackers.
Just grab some plates, cut up the fruit, add the crackers and put out an assortment of Dannon® Danimals® Smoothies for them to pick their favorite flavor! Easy Peasy right? Works with any fresh fruit or veggies and you can mix it up so they are never bored.
Other ideas for pairings is to substitute crackers with granola, nuts or a whole grain muffin. You can add some cheese cubes, apple slices with a little peanut butter, add peanut butter to the banana slices. You can really give them something new and different every day and all of it pairs so well with the Dannon® Danimals® Smoothies.
Some added fun for kids is an Play 60 contest – if they find the “Golden Bongo” Dannon® Danimals® bottle (located in specially marked packages) they can win a Play60 Field Day for your school with NFL pros!
As a mom I feel good that Dannon® Danimals® provide “Only the Good Stuff®” with no high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors or colors, as well as provides a good source of calcium and vitamin D. They are the perfect on-the-go option for our busy family! helps fuel my kids’ adventures – at school, after school, at sports practice, during homework time or to start the day!
Have you tried Dannon® Danimals® with your kids and what are some of your favorite pairings to go with the delicious yogurt smoothies? I would love to see your ideas in the comments!
