After School Snacks (or Preschool)
My sweet boy went to preschool for the first time this morning… I still can’t believe it. Where did time go? He is more than ready to go, mastered going potty, and can’t wait to go play with new friends, color, and eat after school snacks for a few hours. Preschool was kind of a surprise to us this year… his birthday is in December and where he turns 3 this year he is able to go and I think he is more than ready to go, but I still kind of can’t wrap my head around it. We got all of his back to school things ready, paper, glue, backpack, crayons, and his favorite and the most important after school snacks.
King is the most independent kid, he doesn’t want help with anything and we figure out that him being independent was why he struggled with potty training for a couple days and would fight us. He didn’t want our help, he wanted to go alone and as soon as we figured that out he mastered it. Getting his own after school snacks is no different. The only hard thing about that is for a second I was having a hard time finding healthy after school snacks that he could get himself. I started precutting fruit and putting it in baggies in the fridge, but the problem with those is that they don’t keep for super long and if we are on the go they will go bad without being in the fridge. I started researching healthier after school snacks for him and I found something that is now his favorite!
We headed to Walmart for some groceries and I saw something called Sejoyia Coco-Roons that come in both brownie and lemon flavor down the gluten free set. They are so many good things like organic, gluten free, vegan, paleo, non-GMO, no refined sugar, and so many other things. I love that these after school snacks are made with coconut and cashews and sweetened with organic maple syrup. They are perfect because he can grab them from the pantry on his own, have a few and put them back with no help. He is obsessed with the brownie flavor and I love that they are made with the finest raw, organic cocoa and has a delicious deep, rich flavor so I can snack on them too. Coco-Roons are the perfect thing to keep in the pantry, toss into his backpack, keep in the car, etc. No matter where you go and you need a snack they are the perfect thing to take.

Now I will be over here soaking up everything he is telling me about preschool, snacking with him on the back patio, and just loving and remembering this age. There is nothing better than him wearing a cape into preschool yelling that “Captain America is here”. This age is really the best.
