We are four days into the school year, and already I’m extremely overwhelmed. With three kids in three different schools this year, my brain continually spins in overdrive, trying not to drop the ball. Ryder’s new school is on the Upper West Side so each morning, I drive all three kids uptown in our car, and then back downtown to drop the girls. This means we are out of the house each morning by 7am, only to then do the rounds a few hours later in the afternoon.
So here’s the routine. I wake up about a half hour before the kids, to make lunches and breakfast, which they now need to eat in the car. I’ve tried to do most of my prep the night before, but I’ve been so exhausted that end up laying down for bed at the same time as they do, just to survive the madness. When I wake the kids at 6:30, they get dressed, brush their teeth, and jet out the door at 7am to our parking garage. I have to say, I like driving them in them mornings. Everyone is the backseat chatting about their day, listening to music, and luckily traffic at the hour isn’t bad yet.
Preparing meals in the mornings have been challenging since they are eating breakfast in the car. I need things that can easily be carried and don’t make a crazy mess in the backseat. With after school activities, afternoon pickups have been a little all over the place, so I’m armed with snacks, at all times. Pure Growth Organic snacks have become their favorite thing to take with them to school, or as an after school snacks. Their snack line includes biscuits, animal crackers, pretzels, popcorn, super chips, breakfast bars, and snack mix. The Crispy Rice Squares are Ryder, Siella, and Gemma’s newest favorite, but their Breakfast Bars are a life saver in the morning. The entire line is made with USDA organic ingredients, no artificial colors or flavors, no preservatives, no MSG, and 0g of trans-fat.
I feel good giving my children snacks from Pure Growth Organic because I know they are healthy options, made with the best ingredients and they love them. Pure Growth packaging has characters on their packaging making it even more fun for the kiddies. Gemma goes nuts for the Paw Patrol and Mickey Mouse on the animal crackers. And best of all, Pure Growth Organic snacks are super affordable making it easy for busy moms to forget the junk food, and be reassured that their kids are getting something healthy.
Once Ryder starts getting bus service, our morning dash will be easier, but I still may opt to pick him up in the afternoons. No matter what happens with their schedules, I’ll always be ready with our favorite Pure Growth snacks, that have made our morning and afternoon commutes a bit easier!

My kids are in different schools, leaving an hour apart. It was a challenge last year, but this year we’re on point.
Those look so good! My kids would love these, but I would, too, actually. These are the kinds of things I love to keep on hand when I’m out and about.
That is some mad dash and I am sure driving in Manhattan at that hour is still tough. I love the idea of a healthy breakfast bar or snack so I will try those.
Sounds like a snack I should have on hand for myself so I can some healthy stuff within arms reach when I get a mid-afternoon snack attack!
Those look like yummy snacks for the kids. I thought keeping up with the one kid in school was a lot, I can’t imagine keeping up with three.
I’ll have to look for these snacks. They sound great for all the running around during the school year.
It’s really nice to keep snacks for the kids after school! They have quite the appetite after a long day of studying, that’s for sure. These bars sound awesome!
I’m glad you found snacks that they like that aren’t just good but healthy as well! It’s good that they’re having breakfast even on the go, it will sustain them before recess or lunch comes by! These sound great!
My son has finally come around to eating these healthy bars on occasion. They are such a huge help to us parents! I keep many varieties around, hoping he will start grabbing them more often!
That little snack for kids can go a long way. Plus, it makes them happy!
I have definitely been focusing on having safer and healthier snacks for my children. Organic options like this being one of them!
These treats sound lovely and they’re perfect for keeping the kids energized while we’re on-the-go! I’m definitely going to buy these on our next trip to the grocery!
Pure Growth snacks sound like the best snacking option to have on hand. I am always on the lookout for more organic and nutritious snacks so I can’t wait to stock up on some for our household.
I don’t think I have bought Pure Life Organic before. It sounds yummy and healthy for kids.
My girls are all about their snacks, we buy the packs for school. Great for lunches, or even after school before our activities. YUM!!!
I definitely remember the packed schedule when my kids were in school! The breakfast bars are going to be amazing for those super busy days!
It’s a good thing to educate kids about eating healthy, I always tell my kids not to eat junk foods at all. I’d have to look for those kinds of breakfast bars.
Oh, they have Paw Patrol on there. I can think of quite a few kids who’d love that.
Those are delish! I just got a sample the other day. : )
These are perfect for our busy schedules! My son will love these (especially the ones with Paw Patrol lol!) I love finding healthy, easy snacks like this.
Kids these days are pretty blessed they have so many healither options to snack on. Great organic snack options I would even like to try crispy rice squares.
My little one is crazy for the Paw Patrol! She will adore these snacks. This mama will love feeding her kid organic options!
I’ve never heard of this brand or snack before, but it looks like a good one. I’ll have to check it out.
Those snacks look really good, we will give them a try, too. I can’t even imagine driving back and forth to school in the city like that. The traffic is busy and you never know how it will be. Best of luck to you!
These are great snacks to give the kids! I would even enjoy them myself. I’m going to stock up on these the next time I shop.
