Healthy Snack Options for Kids

Kids are home these days, “social distancing”, and parents are working from home for the same reason. Everyone is over-stocked up on food, but do you have the right food for healthy snack options?

Many pre-packed, processed snacks are actually unhealthy and full of refined flour, added sugars, and artificial ingredients. The last thing you need is for your child that is already stressed and dealing with change beyond their control to crash or be over-excited due to what they are eating. Or even worse, not have enough essential vitamins and nutrients in their bodies to fight off colds and viruses. Kids will get hungry during the day, even more so now that they are outside more and being more active than they are on a normal school day. So sneak some healthy nutrients into their snacks!

Here is a list that we came up with (through trial and error and research) to help you feed them food they need to give them the right amount of energy and nutrients to get through each day, especially with being at home all the time these days.

*Yogurt – get the plain and sweeten it with honey
*Popcorn – pop your own and then drizzle with a touch of butter, Parmesan cheese, or other healthy toppings
*Celery with Peanut Butter and even add some raisins
*Apples with peanut butter or other nut butters (we use almond that we make ourselves at our house)
*Nuts and seeds – just be careful of allergies, we eat a lot of almonds, cashews, walnuts, sunflower, pumpkin
*Trail Mix – if you get store bought, stay away from the ones with chocolates, if you make your own, use non-sugar cereals, nuts, pretzels, coconut, dried fruits and pretty much anything else you have
*Sliced/Chopped fruit – Pears, Strawberries, Cantaloupe, Kiwi, Grapes, Apples, Oranges, Bananas, Watermelon – we always keep fresh fruit ready in the fridge. Bagged in snack bags or containers, as well as a bulk container ready for refills
*Cottage Cheese
*Oatmeal – sweeten with cinnamon and apples, honey, blueberries….you can also make strawberry oatmeal bars (or other fruit bars)
*Cheese – a slice or the round Babybel type, or the Laughing Cow
*Veggie Pita Sandwich – Hummus with lots of chopped up veggies (cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce (not iceberg), bell peppers)
*Cherry tomatoes – my son eats them like candy right out of the container
*Fruit Smoothies – if you can, use spinach or kale and blend it with the fruit and yogurt, it’s an added bonus they kids won’t even know it’s there!
*Banana Oat Cookies
*Raisins
*Turkey Avocado Roll up
*Baked Sweet Potato Fries (or we actually use our air fryer)
*Pickles
*Kale Chips (we use our air fryer for these too)
*Roasted Chick Peas (my 9 year old loves these)
*Veggies Cut up/Chopped – dipped in hummus or ranch or guacamole
*Whole-grain crackers and nut butter
*Whole Fruit – oranges, apples, bananas, pears, grapes- we keep on hand all the time
*Olives
*Frozen Fruit Popsicles – make with real fruit
*Half of a Sandwich

We will be posting recipes on our social media each day with some of these and other fun, healthy options.

Workout Options during the Coronvirus Social Distancing Stay at Home Escapade

Now that everyone is at home because of the Coronavirus and your gym has been forced to close, don’t let that discourage you from keeping up a fitness routine. Stress is going to be high and exercise is a great way to deal with it. Many gyms have taken to creating online videos, live Facebook workouts, or just motivational instruction and offering them for FREE to anyone.

Escambia County Schools 

ECSD Adding Schools to List of Sites Offering School Meals
Starting March 30, 2020, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Beginning Monday, March 30, Escambia County School District’s Food Service Department is planning to add schools to the list of sites where families can pick up breakfast and lunch, for free. All sites will give children or teens a breakfast meal and a lunch meal, during the same visit. The meals are designed to be carried away and consumed off campus (cafeteria/dining rooms will not be open). Meals will be distributed in a curbside pick-up operation. Food items will be in to-go containers and will consist of ready-to-eat food items that should be consumed when received or should be quickly refrigerated for consumption at a later time.
According to the USDA’s policy, the child or children must be present to receive meals. They must be 18 and younger; and children do not have to be a student at that school in order to pick up meals there.
Supplemental school meals will be available at the following sites beginning March 30, Monday through Friday. Because Friday, April 10, is a non-student day, families will need to make other arrangements for that day.

“Things to do during the Two Week Coronavirus Hiatus” | Pensacola With Kids

Here is a list of ideas of things to do at home or close to home (we are also sharing links to different online, virtual, and local on our Facebook feed as we see them) for your kids as they get bored during this time at home with social distancing. Feel free to send us a message with other ideas that you have!

  1. Play sports (soccer, basketball, baseball, etc) so the kids can practice even though their actual practice may be canceled.
  2. These 12 famous museums–from London to Seoul–offer virtual tours you can take on your couch. 
  3. If kids are missing their school friends or other families, try video chats to stay in touch.
  4. Practice multiplication and script with your kids. That’ll put them in a REALLY good mood. For older kids, break out the practice tests.
  5. Build a fort with blankets or cardboard boxes.
  6. Delete all of the expletive-laden “music” from your teenager’s Spotify playlist on the family computer, while she’s not looking.
  7. Make time for active play. Bring out the blocks, balls, jump ropes and buckets and let the creativity go.
  8. Wash the floors by hand. Or use a toothbrush.
  9. Do that mending and ironing you’ve been putting off since 2004.
  10. Calm yourselves with mindfulness meditation. Check-out the Moodparth app to track moods, Headspace and Calm for meditation. 
    Groom the dog. Then suck all the fur off your couch.
  11. Make freeze-ahead dinners. The ones you wish you had right now.
  12. Get kids the Lil’ Capt. Robert Scott Antarctic Expedition playset.
  13. Make mazes or puzzles for each other to solve.
  14. Shred your pile of old documents. Better yet, multitask. Use them to light up the fireplace.
  15. Change the batteries in the smoke detectors, since you forgot during Fall Back.
  16. Find all the lids to the Tupperware.
  17. Make homemade mini pizzas.
  18. Download an app and learn how to edit videos.
  19. Call your elderly neighbors and see what you can do to help. Make happy notes and leave them on their door.
  20. Play Monopoly with the rules that make the game go slower.
  21. Go through your junk drawer. Do not be afraid.
  22. Create a treasure hunt for them (leaving clues around the house or yard).
  23. Maintain a sense of hope and positive thinking; consider keeping a journal where you write down things you are grateful for or that are going well.
  24. Clean your silverware and jewelry. Alternatively, pine for silverware and jewelry worth cleaning.
  25. Sort mementos into keep and toss piles. Spend time poring over the keepers—after all, that’s why you’re keeping them.
  26. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep and avoid alcohol and drugs.
  27. Make a master calendar for gift-giving dates. Shop ahead online. Or for yourself. Pretend there are sales.
  28. Make a list of all the things you love about your significant other for a card or scrapbook. Make stuff up if you have to.
  29. Put on your fanciest dress-up clothes, evening dress and jewelry and pretend you’re in an old movie. 
  30. Scan old photos and make a photo book. Then force the kids to look at pictures of their parents when they were little.
  31. Do your taxes! April 15 only feels far off.
  32. Do a science experiment.
  33. Order seeds and plants for your spring garden. Yes, spring will come eventually.
  34. Update your resume. Hey, it’s better than doing it at work and leaving it in the copying machine.
  35. Go through clothes (for you and your children) in drawers and closet. Try on and toss.
  36. Upload your CDs, finally. Now, this may be difficult: Toss the CDs and the CD player.
  37. Pitch a tent inside and have a family campout.
  38. Take out all the beach chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards and make a beach day in your living room.
  39. Google yourself.
  40. Create a schedule for your day – but don’t put too much pressure on yourself to stick to it.
  41. Make fun decorations for Easter and decorate the house with them.
  42. Collect all the pennies from the corners of the house, coat pockets, sofa cushions, jeans in the laundry. Maybe you’ll have enough for a cup of coffee at Starbucks. Then again, maybe not.
  43. Write a letter. You know the kind, with pen and paper.
  44. Make snowflakes out of paper. Tape them to your windows to block out the white piles outside.
  45. Teach haiku—five, seven, five—and make a book of illustrated snow haiku.
  46. Create airfare alerts for deals to your dream destinations.
  47. Play this fun game with your kids: Let’s Clean the Bathroom!
  48. Do shadow puppets in the dark.
  49. Play family-friendly spin the bottle with your chore list. Hope it doesn’t point to you when it’s time to clean toilets.
  50. Mani-pedi, scrub or mask, deep condition. You choose the body parts.
    Learn to juggle.
  51. Bubble bath. Turn down the lights, light a candle and pretend you’re in a spa. Doesn’t do it for you? It’s not completely impossible that a real one is open.
  52. Experiment all day on devising the ultimate chocolate chip cookie. Tasting mandatory.
  53. Begin your memoirs.
  54. Make a comic book.
  55. Take pictures of all your belongings to inventory for insurance. Now do a written inventory.
  56. Sleep. Glorious sleep.
  57. Have a reading or movie marathon.
  58. Take turns saying tongue twisters.
  59. Send messages to your friends and relatives with your favorite memories with them. 
  60. Build paper airplanes and have a flying contest.
  61. Scavenger hunts. An oldie but a real goodie. For the younger crowd, have kids collect items based on colors (such as three red items, three blue items, etc.), and for older kids, items can be collected based on letters of the alphabet.
  62. Collages. Go through photo collections, print out favorites, and make a creative collage for a fun and thoughtful gift for a special friend or family member.
  63. Unlimited painter’s tape games. One roll of painter’s tape equals countless activities. Create a long jump “pit” with several spaced-out lines of tape and see how far kids can jump. Perhaps they get further each time they try! Fashion your very own indoor hopscotch court and used rolled-up socks or beanbags as markers. Design a race track for toy cars, trucks, and trains.
  64. Fashion show. Unleash your child’s inner diva with a raid of home closets and the dress-up box. Suggest categories for outfits such as stylish or silly. Don’t forget the runway, the music, and the flash of the paparazzi taking pictures.
  65. Balloon tennis. Using hands, tennis rackets, back scratchers, pool noodles, or other devices, make your own Wimbledon court. (Strawberries and cream and finger sandwiches are strongly encouraged.)
  66. Slime! This squishy, oozy fad is not going away anytime soon. And why would we want it to? Make your own slime using myriad internet-provided instructions. Create slime in different colors and themes.
  67. Living room picnic. Spread out your favorite blanket and include the kids in the preparation of their favorite lunch items. Who knows? Maybe after the break, they will make their own lunches! (A parent can dream.)
  68. Paper airplanes. There are so many ways to craft a super-sleek aircraft. Ramp up the fun by designing a landing strip. Can you fly your plane into a large pot, a large circle cut out of paper on the floor, or through a hula hoop?
  69. House of cards. Skip the Netflix version, grab a pack of playing cards, and see how high your kids can build a tower.
  70. Rock painting. With warm, sunny days ahead, prepare to beautify your outdoor space with colorful, painted rocks. Decorate rocks with multiple colors, pictures, dates, and kids’ names.
  71. Forts. Go old-school with pillows and blankets, or create a full-day activity by picking up a large appliance cardboard box. Cut out a door, a window or two, and provide craft materials including paint, markers, glue, feathers, ribbons, and stickers for kids to make their very own stylish tiny house. Don’t forget to stock the fort with cushions, flashlights, books, and snacks.
  72. Domino run. Pick up a few boxes of dominoes at your local dollar or toy store and set up a domino run. Start small with a straight line of dominoes and increase the challenge with varying shapes of runs.
  73. Freeze dance. Think of this as a super way to burn off excess energy as well as an always-fun game. Crank up your kids’ favorite songs and when the DJ (designated kid or parent) stops the music, players must freeze in their spot.
  74. Puppet show. With a few craft supplies and a whole lot of creativity, have your kids make their own puppets, write a script, and perform a show. Think Sound of Music without the goats.
  75. Twister. Using the official board or your own home-designed version, there is never a dry eye (as in happy, laughing tears) when getting tied up in knots with your friends and family.
  76. Obstacle course. When designing an obstacle course indoors or outside, it’s all about movement. Crawl under an object, jump over an object, run around an object, slide between objects, and laugh!
  77. Board games. Think the old favorites: Hungry Hippos, Clue, Sorry, Monopoly, Candyland, Snakes and Ladders, and Yahtzee.
  78. Indoor basketball. The methods of playing indoor basketball are practically limitless. Have kids toss balled-up socks into laundry hampers, ping pong balls into cups, stuffed animals into hula hoops, etc. etc.
  79. Bake. Channel your inner Martha Stewart and bake cookies from scratch. Or channel your inner Betty Crocker and get a pre-made mix. No one is judging!
  80. Juggle. It takes a lot of skill and coordination to become a master juggler but with a lot of practice with one, two, and eventually, three items found around the house, juggling can become a party favorite. (Just be sure to lock the knives away while looking for potential juggling props!)
  81. Blow Bubbles. The sunshine is back, so break out the bubbles. The bright sun makes those bubbles look like hundreds of little spheres of rainbow colors. Those magical bubbles can entertain children for hours. Make your own bubble solution recipe from home and throw a bubble party to get the most out of your bubble-blowing fun during spring break. 
  82. Enjoy Nature Activities. Now that you can actually go outside without having to wear a snowsuit, enjoy some of the new life sprouting around you. Play games outside, go on a treasure hunt or rough it in the backyard. Take advantage or outdoor nature activities that entice kids to turn off of their electronic gadgets and turn them on to the great outdoors.
  83. Fly Somewhere Special in Your Living Room. Not jetting off for a week-long getaway today? That’s okay. Go anywhere you want in the world without ever leaving home. Play airplane with your children and simulate a flight to your own tropical destination. Or go somewhere cold. The destination is completely up to your kids. If they want to go visit Santa at the North Pole, pack your parka and go!
  84. Read Outdoors. Grab some books and head outside. Plan an afternoon reading picnic during spring break. Spread a blanket in the grass. Bring the pages to life with your kids and help turn your kids into book lovers. Take turns reading to each other. Flip through picture books. Make up your own stories. What matters most is the quality time you spend showing your kids the importance of sitting down with a good book.
  85. Plant Spring Flowers. The ground has thawed and that barren patch of dirt is practically begging for some color. Plant spring flowers with your children during their time off from school. Take them to the nursery and let them choose some flowers for your spring garden. Grow memories with your children as you get dirty and teach the children about the flowers, vegetables, or herbs you’re planting together. There are plenty of fun gardening projects for kids, regardless of their ages.
  86. Share Your Love of Music. How often have you heard an old song and it instantly transported you to another time and place? Imprint those same music-loving memories on your children. Share a variety of music with them by listening to various songs together, swapping stories, and bringing the music to life with fun music activities like musical chairs or a family dance party.
  87. Host a Family Movie Night. After a busy day of play, end your evening with a family movie night. But this isn’t any ordinary family movie night. Tonight, you are turning your house into a movie theater, complete with a concession stand, homemade movie tickets, and movie reviews after the credits roll.
  88. Stay Busy on Rainy Days. Those unpredictable spring showers can put a damper on your outdoor plans during spring break. Have a back-up plan in place with indoor activities to keep kids busy. They can make wall art, play indoor games, engage in creative writing activities, and so much more.
  89. Start Your Own Holiday Traditions. Spring break is an excellent time to get ready for the upcoming spring holy days–Easter, Passover, Eid, or Ramadan–if you celebrate them. Prepare Easter baskets and dye eggs together, do kid-friendly Passover crafts like making a seder plate or Elijah cup, or even make a Ramadan advent calendar.
  90. Create Spring Crafts. Break out the pastel paint colors. Get crafty with projects that usher in springtime. Backyard crafts, flower crafts, garden crafts and even crafts that encourage critters to come visit are just a few of the projects you and your children can create together.
  91. Sign Up for a Spring Break Camp. Camping fun isn’t just for summertime. Many of your favorite camps offer a special weeklong spring break camp. Camps are usually scheduled to coincide with the local public school system’s spring break to give kids a fun alternative to staying home all week if your family isn’t traveling. Even if you don’t take advantage of a spring break camp, springtime is perfect to get your kids signed up for summer camp before everything fills up. **Please make sure to check with the camp to ensure they are still open this week.
  92. Enjoy a Playcation. How many times have you been too busy or too tired to simply sit down with the kids and play? Have a playcation during spring break week. From sunup to sundown, you’re your children’s number one playmate this week and there are no phones, electronic gadgets, or other distractions to keep you from playing. Build forts, play dolls, or walk the plank on a cardboard pirate ship. There’s no limit to the amount of quality, imaginative play you can sneak in during spring break.
  93. Plan Your Summer Together. Take a look at your family budget before spring break and spend the time planning your summer vacation together. Involve the kids in sketching out the possible places you can go and the things you can do once you get there. Use this time to research tourism bureau websites together and figure out what interests you all the most. By the end of spring break, you will have a nice collection of places to choose from and everyone can cast a vote for where to go and activities you want to do.
