How To Become A Snacktivist
Snacktivisits UNITE! Wait, you don’t know what a snacktivist is? Oh, well sit tight, because you’re going to love the positive messaging Sally Kuzemchak of Real Mom Nutrition is spreading about kids and snacking!
Snack Time, Crazy Time
If you’re a mom, you know that snack-time is sometimes a time when all you can do is cringe. Snacks have become “treats” or foods that we sometimes use to “quiet” the crazy. Even well-meaning parents (ahem, me included), will toss a few graham crackers in the back seat just to prevent a screaming toddler melt-down. Heck, we’ve even taken our lackluster snack offerings to our kid’s school’s and sporting practices and events. While the occasional snack “treat” is ok, it seems that occasional has become every time. And that’s concerning because what are we saying with these actions as parents? Isn’t this message confusing? It is, especially when you’re young and you rely on and desire consistency with everything in your life. Enter the snacktivist movement!
Sally Says, Become A “Snactivist!”
Enter Sally of Real Mom Nutrition. She knows the snack struggle is REAL (she’s a mom too!) and she created a book to help parents tackle snack time in a practical, helpful way. A snacktivist, as defined by Sally, is someone who helps “to improve the snack culture for our children, give kids healthier choices instead of defaulting to packaged junk – and most importantly, to change the status quo.” Amen Sally! Her book is loaded with great tips on mastering snack time (at home and away) and even includes letters to schools, lists of snacks and recipes! Oh man, you’re life just got easier, right? Let’s all say it together, “Thanks Sally!”
