It’s hard to believe that summer is almost over in the world of school-aged children and it’s time to get back into the routine of school drop off, pick up, and all the fun in-between! We know that getting back into that routine can take extra work for some thus needing extra fuel to get through the day. We’ve created a list of snacks that are focused on giving our working parents a little extra boost for their ever-changing routines!
Verb Energy Bars
Verb bars are a caffeinated protein bar. Does it get better than that?! They make for a solid snack choice or even breakfast-on-the-go when needed. Each bar has 10g of plant-powered protein, derived from organic green tea, is vegan, GF, and tasty!

Mush is ready-to-eat overnight oats that are dairy-free, gluten-free, and made up of clean ingredients to give you a boost of energy!

This time of year, caffeine is a MUST, so let’s talk tea! There are so many brands and types out there, we always do our best to source the best of the best and Seven has made the cut! The all-organic ingredients are blended with reverse osmosis water to make a delicious, caffeinated, lightly sweetened refreshment.
Currently carrying: Uptown Half and Half
Mayawell is a healthy alternative soda option that is prebiotic, meaning it aids in digestion, is low in sugar, and is made with organic ingredients. It has “Active Agave” which is low in fructose and is low glycemic index – it is an alternative to cane sugar and other sweeteners. It’s the perfect option to grab with any meal or on it’s own.

We know that a change in schedule can mean mood and sleep changes as well. Hydration is key to stay healthy and sane! Cue coconut water. Harmless harvest has no additives and no added sugar – it is pure organic coconut water.

Skinny Dipped Almonds
There’s always comes a time when you just need a little something sweet, and skinny dipped almonds fill that need. Packed with protein and dusted in pure dark chocolate these almonds are a game changer for providing a nutrient dense sweet fix.

In conclusion, we value all the working parents out there and hope these snacks can give all a little extra boost of confidence and energy to get through this transitional time. It’s an honor to fuel you during the week!
Happy last days of summer and happy snacking!
