Is it just me or do you feel like your kids are constantly asking you for a snack? Seriously. Constantly.
When I head out the door, I am usually carrying four water bottles and a myriad of on-the-go munching options. I have a few requirements for my snack brigade:
- Snacks have to be individually wrapped or packaged so that my kids aren't fighting over one bag.
- Snacks have to involve little or no mess (because they are frequently consumed in my car -- this is a topic for a whole other blog post).
- Everything has to be relatively healthy -- because a sugary, preservative-laden treat isn't going to do any of us any good.
I've recently been introduced to giddy dip 'ems, a new kiddie snack featuring whole grain biscuits and real fruit dips. This product line is founded on the principle that snacking can be healthy and fun (take that sugary fruit snacks!).
Giddy dip 'ems are free of high fructose corn syrup, preservatives and artificial ingredients. They come in four flavors: strawberry, tropical, grape and sour apple (we are big strawberry fans at our house).
My kids first tried giddy dip' ems a few weeks ago and they were instantly hooked -- they loved them (and licked the fruit container clean). I've recently been working with giddy to coordinate some local sampling opportunities for this new product and I've had large amounts of giddy dip' ems in my office awaiting distribution. This has basically been pure torture for my kids who are desperate to get their hands on more dip' ems! I've had to explain to them countless times that these boxes of snacks are for other kids who haven't had a chance to try giddy dip' ems out yet! Lots of tears over this.
