Skiing and snacking seem to go hand-in-hand in our family. We ski a few runs and then the inevitable question pops out of someones mouth, “Can we head in for a snack?”. In their defense, my boys work hard when they’re skiing and their appetites are justifiably always on overdrive. The snacking is constant and grabbing something healthy on-the-go can sometimes be challenging.
We spent this last week skiing our hearts out. It was school vacation week, the conditions were fantastic and we were able to get in 9 days on the slopes. Translation: a lot of snacks were needed on the mountain.
Thanks to Stonyfield we had a large stash of YoKids Smoothies to test out. They were a big hit-not only with our family, but with friends all around the mountain.
Here are a few smoothie facts:
- They’re made with real organic fruits and veggie puree
- They come in Strawbana and Very Berry flavors
- Kid-friendly size
- Healthier alternative to more processed on-the-go snacks
- Each bottle contains 1/3 of kids’ recommended daily serving of calcium
My youngest son, who’s a yogurt addict, didn’t think that one smoothie was enough. The containers are pretty small. For those kids (and adults) who can’t seem to finish the larger size Stonyfield Super Smoothie, the new YoKids Smoothies are the perfect size.
The smoothies traveled far with us and were bounced around on the ride to the ski mountain. I was a bit concerned that the foil wrapper that serves as the top to the bottle would rip or leak. It didn’t. I think traveling to school in my son’s lunch box will be the true test.
We had a few YoKids Smoothies to spare so we shared the love with friends on the mountain.
Even the race team coaches, Jonathan and Josh, tested them out and the consensus was a ‘thumbs up’.
What are your favorite snacks to take with you when you’re on the move?
