Lots of Outside Time

OK, who’s looking for ideas for summer snacks? C’mon, you know what I mean. It’s the summertime, baby!! In recent years, the summer has pulled away a little bit from the pack to become my #1 season. Ok, I still love fall, too, but there’s just something about the summer. Lazy, long days, mixed with all that heat. The kids are home, there’s a feeling of freedom in the air.

My area, Long Island NY, comes alive with beaches, festivals, outdoor dining, and so much more. Everyone is in a great mood it seems, just taking the time to live and enjoy life a bit more. People take more days off, they vacation, they have second homes. It’s just a great time to be alive, and I enjoy and appreciate it more and more each year.

Anyways, back to the summer snacks and those all-important snacks for kids!!

Good Summer Snacks

Everyone seems to really build up an appetite spending hot summer days running, jumping, and swimming! And why? There’s so much fun and so many laughs to be had! Summer snacks are essential and are the key to fueling up and letting us work our bodies harder!! But what is a good summer snack?

I think easy snacks are the best. But so many options are either not healthy for us or are kind of a pain to bring along. What can be done? Generally, it’s time to visit your local Walmart and check out the awesome selection of Nature Valley bars. These babies dot all the Is and cross and the Ts for me and my family!

Nature Valley Bars

Nature Valley bars are easy snacks. They are perfect summer snacks, and I need to share. I’ve always loved Nature Valley bars. From the very first time I crunched into that awesome granola bar many years ago, I’ve been hooked. Today, they are so much more than that original Oat’s ‘n Honey Crunchy bar!! This great company offers so many great choices with more and more coming all the time.

One thing has never changed at Nature Valley, though. They have always believed that what you put in is what you get out. They want you to be able to rely on them to create snacks that taste great. Whether you need a protein boost, some real energy for a new challenge, or just a great tasting snack. They are available for you wherever and whenever you need it!!

New Nature Valley Wafer Bars

Satisfy your sweet craving with the crispy, creamy New Nature Valley Wafer Bars. Made with light and crispy whole grain wafers, layers of peanut butter and topped with crunchy granola. If you need your chocolate fix, there’s a Peanut Butter Chocolate bar, too!!

These are a whole new snack game, baby! I love that these are so light and crisp, plus who doesn’t love the satisfying taste and textures of peanut butter and chocolate. Tastes great and such an easy snack. These delicious bars are made with real peanut butter and have no artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners.

Yep, as usual, Nature Valley bars check all of the boxes and then some. I’m all about these new bars and so are my kids. They are perfect summer snacks for sure. I think you’ll agree, too, if you give it a try!! We take them along with us to the pool, the beach, and everywhere beyond. They can’t be beat and are loved by the whole family. Now that’s not something I can say every day…

These Nature Valley Bars look to be an ideal and healthy snack. I would benefit from packing these for traveling as well. It’ll give me a better alternative than what’s available for purchase in airports. I’ll definitely be on the lookout for these at the grocery store. Thanks for the tip.
