As these boys get older, I’ve noticed two things happening:
1) They get busier with everything from organized sports to time with friends.
2) They eat more all the time.
The boys’ baseball schedules kept us so busy earlier this summer, and I struggled to keep up with meals (and laundry, but maybe that’s an entirely different post). I think I spent a small fortune at the concession stand. Yet, no matter how much money I spent, the boys always seemed hungry. Considering we needed to be at the field some days at 4:00 pm, I couldn’t get a full meal into them before we needed to be on our way. And now we’re facing our first go at football season, which—looking at the pre-schedule—will give us our busiest fall. Ever.
Practice 3-4 nights per week along with games—and homework, fun fall things, some travel, and of course, time with friends.
I started to worry about finding something quick to feed them on the way to practice after school, until I remembered HORMEL® REV® Wraps.
I like REV® Wraps because they’re a snack that’s already ready to go. The boys can eat this on-the-go snack in the car as we head to practice. Though I really think, given the current state of my vehicle’s back seat, I need to install a trash can. Thankfully these aren’t as messy as, say, chips (and much more filling!), and the only thing to toss is the wrapper. Bonus!
I also love the protein packed into these wraps. At least 12 grams of protein per wrap (there are 14 different varieties to help with all different kinds of tastes and eaters!) mean that your active older kids, tweens, and teens will have the fuel to keep going. Real meat and real cheese mean your busy kids will have a real snack to sustain their energy when they’re out doing whatever it is they’re doing.
This fall will be a lesson in planning and scheduling… and flexibility. I’m already missing the laxidasical approach to sports from our now-old soccer league. One practice per week makes for a much simpler week. But with things like REV® Wraps to help me out in this very important way, I’ll at least know my kids are fueled up for practice and will make it until dinner without whining. Too much.
And now, you can win! What REV® Wrap would you like to try while you are on the go? Tell me in the comments for a chance to win a $100 VISA gift card.
