It's Snack Time!

On back to school night, I signed up to bring a snack in today.

I had to figure out what to bring that would feed 24 kids.

Mmm, Little Debbie snacks. Is it wrong that my mind immediately went there? Some friends made me feel better about that.

“Well, oatmeal cream pies are somewhat healthy,” they joked. “There is the oatmeal..”

Still, I didn’t think the teacher would appreciate Little Debbie snacks.

Or, if she didn’t care, surely one of the parents would have a fit. I could picture a woman stomping in the class—she’s the type that wears a cardigan tied loosely around her neck, I’m sure. She’d say, “I heard from my precious Makennzee (yes, her kid will have one of those weirdly spelled names because she wanted her kid to be “different.”) that she had a snack with cream in the middle? Makennzee isn’t allowed those things. If it’s not organic, I’d rather her not eat it.”

Well, sorry crazed mother. I wasn’t going to do an organic snack. If you want organic only, go to private school.

I ended up with these:



I mean, who doesn’t love Cheez-Its? And they are educational thanks to the letters on the front. So the kids can eat and spell!

It’s a win-win!

  1. LOVE Cheez-Its!

    I'm signed up to bring a snack next week...but it's Bree's birthday, so it'll be cookies & juice boxes. I did buy a box of Annie's Homegrown Graham bunnies to donate for the class...but they were on sale, 2.50...and they are soooo good.

  2. Yum. I don't trust anyone who can't appreciate a Cheez-it.

  3. We go through a box of Cheez-Its a week around here. Ok, maybe more. Don't trust the moms who don't let their kids have Cheez-Its!

  4. Good choice!!!

    I think the ones who only want their kids to eat organic food should pack their own little organic snack for snack time at school. I am probably going to get stoned for saying that.

  5. I save the organic snacks for me! Cheez It's are perfect. :-)

  6. I agree with Furry Bottoms. If they want their kid to have an organic snack, they should pack it themselves.

    I see nothing wrong with Little Debbie snacks personally.

  7. I always buy whatever is the cheapest in bulk form. Healthy, not healthy...doesn't matter. CHEAP matters.

  8. For my daughter's kindergarten class we all had to bring in a box of snack crackers or whatever. I chose the scrabble cheez its too! Educational right and not all that different in unhealthy stuff than goldfish so win-win if you ask me!

  11. I think either is fine. And really - I am not a fan of having to bring in a snack - why is it that people feel the need to continuously feed kids? I mean, my girls play soccer for 45 minutes and a parent is expected to bring a snack for after the game - and a drink! It's usually then eaten in the car on the way home. Why can't they just wait til they get home? Or mom send whatever she wants little Susie to have? (Getting off soapbox now!)

  12. For the first time Bella has to bring in snacks for the whole class. We have to do it four times in the first half of the school year. HATE IT!! Why can't every parent just bring in snacks for their OWN child? She did that for 1st and 2nd grade!!! Ugh. This is a stressor I don't need!

  13. I think my kids live on Cheeze-It's ... only they have to put up with the store knock-offs because they cruise through them too fast to buy the real stuff. :)

    Visiting from SITS :)

  14. It's hard to find anything anyway with all the rules. The post made me smile...even if my sons middle name is Mykael. But I don't wear a cardigan.

  15. What's really funny is that most organic (unless taken from your very own local farmer, or your garden) foods have the same preservatives. There's no way those foods can be sent around the country without them. And, the organic food business is just that, a business. The bottom line is the bottom line. Now, they won't even let animal crackers in the schools. They'll put junk food in the cafeterias, though. Grrr.

  16. Sounds perfect to me! It's called a snack. If they want it to be nutritious, they should call it a healthy snack. If it doesn't say healthy first, you are free to grab at your pleasure!

    Happy Sharefest. Have a great week.
