Every day when I pick the kids up from school, it seems to be a competition as to who can ask the “what’s for snack?” question first. 

I don’t know about your kids, but mine are STARVING as soon as they get in the car.  And every day it’s a mystery as to what Snack will be. 

Overall though, my goal when it comes to after school snacks is to give them something that is healthy and filling.  I need a snack that can hold them over until dinner.  And for us the snack MUST be mobile. 

Not only do I have to think about after school snacks, but like many of you my daughter has after school activities.  One of which is gymnastics.  And lucky for us, Gymnastics just happens to occur from 5:15 – 6:15.  By the time she gets home for dinner it’s almost 6:45.  That makes for a very long day for her.

This my friends is why I LOVE the idea of homemade granola bars.  I used to think they were complicated and time consuming. 

However I am here to tell you they are NOT.  These No Bake Granola Bars take less than 20 minutes to make and your kids will gobble them up.

Add a Dannon Danimals smoothie with your granola bar and you have an unbeatable kid friendly, mom approved snack!  The combination of these no bake granola bars and Dannon Danimals Smoothie will provide your kids the energy they need without spoiling their appetite! 

My kids have tried almost all the flavors of Dannon Danimals Smoothies and every one has come back with two thumbs up.  Dannon Danimals Smoothies are the perfect on-the-go options that helps fuel kids’ adventures any where they are – school, home, or on the go.

When purchasing, note the special packaging on some Dannon Danimals Smoothie Boxes.  If you find a “Golden Bongo” bottle (located on specifically marked packages), you could win a Play60 Field Day for your school with NFL pros!  How amazing would that be?!  For more information visit the Fuel Up to Play Site.

Don’t worry about these snack combo being packed with junk.  These No Bake Granola Bars and Dannon Danimals Smoothes contain zero high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors.  They are both packed with only the “good stuff.”

So where can you find all of the ingredients for these No Bake Granola Bars as well as the Dannon Danimals Smoothies?  Walmart of course!
