Kids these days.
Just kidding, there is a kid in all of us so let’s not start that schpeel.
The kids in us these days….are spoilt with choice.
When I was in primary and high school, good tasting ‘healthy’ snacks were VERY rare to come by. Healthy choices would have been limited to granola bars, fresh fruit and salad sandwiches. On the other hand, we were ‘blessed’ with some nutritionally void goodies- Dunk-a-roos, faux cheese snack packs, and those muffins which were well….predominantly chocolate chips.
I still remember this one friend I had who loved my ‘healthy’ brown bag snacks. They would love trading the ‘golden options’ (rice crispy treats, packaged muffins and faux-nola bars, which were pretty much 99% sugar) with my wholesome ones. Every day for 2 school years straight (before they moved…sad face) we would trade. I remember then thinking what a sucker, trading off his good snacks for my sub-par ones.
…He’s probably competing in Rio right now.
I’m totally claiming any potential medals he gets.
These days, there are a plethora of snacks- From brownies, muffins, loaves, freezer friendly pancakes, protein bars, granola bars….the list is endless. A bonus?
