Get Creative in the Kitchen with Your Kids and Slammers!

By Sarah Boucher, Publisher Macaroni Kid Grand Haven, Spring Lake, and Muskegon April 15, 2020

I have kids that are CONSTANTLY snacking and we have a difference of option about what they should be snacking on.  They want treats and I want them to have nutritious food.  Then add in the fact that movement is limited due to our area's current "Stay Home, Stay Safe Order" which means I can't make multiple runs to the store each week.  What is a mom supposed to do?  Target and Slammers Super Food Snack to the rescue!

All my problems were solved with a few clicks of a button!  I logged on to Target and started a curbside pickup order, added three flavor varieties of Slammers Snacks to my cart, paid online, waited for the email saying my order was ready, pulled up to the designated spot at Target and opened the back hatch.  Like magic, I had nutritious snacks that my kids will agree are also delicious and seem like a treat, and I was able to easily follow the recommended guidelines for traveling outside the home.  Win-win!

Of course, when I came home from the store, the kids immediately wanted to know what I got.  This was our first experience with Slammers Snacks, and they were skeptical.  After all, there was fruit AND vegetables pictured on the box.  As soon as they discovered we were making freezer pops with this new grocery find, they were all in!

Slammers has so many great recipes and some amazingly unexpected uses for this super-food snack packed with antioxidants, iron, and vitamins A and C!  We opted for making freezer pops, and were able to get creative with the recipe.  Slammers has a delicious sounding recipe for Epic creamsicles; unfortunately our store location was out of Epic flavor, so we took our creative liberties and used Awesome flavor instead.  Guess what!?!? They were awesome!  And you know what's even more awesome?  My kids ate BEETS and didn't even know it because of the delicious combination of flavors packed in this little pouch!  

My kids are picky eaters and very hesitant to try new foods.  So, if they have become fans, I'm convinced that any kid will love this snack, and you can add in some family fun spending time cooking/baking with your kids while you sneak added nutrition!  You can even substitute Slammers in any recipe where you would typically substitute applesauce for sugar or freeze them and eat like a smoothie.  What are you waiting for?  Grab some Slammers today!
