A few weeks back our little snack date group headed to Luscher Farms for their Garden Babies program that happens every Monday morning from April through October. The program starts with a few stories and then the kids get to head over to feed the chickens. I wasn’t sure what Edith would think about feeding the chickens and she was a little apprehensive at first but that quickly turned into excitement. I actually had a tough time convincing her to move on to the next activity.
Next we headed over the garden area so the kids good check out the worms and do a little digging in the garden. They spent a good 20-30 minutes running around the garden, playing and digging in the dirt and examining the plants.
After the program finished we washed hands and found a picnic table to have our snack at. Today’s snack was Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars, a favorite among our group. We were able to have a sneak peek tasting of their new gluten free bars which come out this summer. Having always enjoyed the whole grain version of these fig bars I was curious to see what the gluten free version would taste like. Verdict? Hands down the gluten free bars were the favorite among our group.
While the whole grain bars are more reminiscent of the fig cookies I grew up loving I actually prefer the texture and soft bite of the gluten free fig bars. I think the fact they were softer and more moist made them more appealing to our tots as well. I can’t recommend these enough and can tell you at least in our house the gluten free fig bars (will be as soon as they hit stores) a staple in our snack jar.
We also brought out some Mamma Chia squeeze packets because we enjoy having a variety of options and these are a favorite of ours.
What are your favorite activities to do with your kids? We had such a great time attending this program. I am hoping to take Edith and Alder a few more times this summer. I imagine the program will be even better as the gardens grow!
What are you favorite on the go snacks?
