I am a bit of a stickler when it comes to my son and junk food. Growing up I would let him have sugary cereals as a treat or dessert so that at least there was some health component involved. As children get older it is really difficult to enforce healthy eating, I just hope that the many years of teaching my son to make healthy choices has shaped his decision making. I am not so crazy that I don’t allow him some treats now and then though. I also believe that forced abstinence from some things causes unhealthy obsessions. If my son has a sweet tooth and wants some candy, I will let him have some in moderation and the craving passes. This is why I really love that HERSHEY’S partnered with Yoplait to make delicious Mix Ins.
I keep a selection of healthy snacks and some treats for my son to choose from when he is hungry for a snack. I stock things like carrots, apples, organic pop corn, whole grain crackers, low fat cheese and creamy Yoplait Yogurt Mix-Ins with Whoppers, Hershey’s Cookies n Creme and Mini Hershey’s chocolate bars. (YUMMY)
My son likes to have a say in what he eats and I like that he can make good choices. He is usually hungry right after school as well as before and after sports so he is eating a lot of snacks for energy and refueling. Stocking the fridge and snack cupboard with good foods is a necessity in our home and it makes it so much easier and convenient for everyone too!
Go put this on your grocery list. The next time you are at the store, look for Hershey’s Mix Ins in the yogurt section and give your family a healthy, sweet treat.
Don’t forget to get some for yourself too because they are really great for when you are craving Rich Hershey’s chocolate!
