    Grab-and-Go Containers

    Have a station or spot in your pantry where snacks are ready to grab quickly. Prepping snacks before hand saves time and frustration during an already hectic morning.

    Place the containers in a spot where even the little ones can reach it. I love this method because I know what is in the grab and go container and I can feel good what they are eating at school like these new Curate Kids snack bars. My kids just love the Apple & Cinnamon bar!
