Birthday parties are notorious for serving junk food. I'll be the first to admit that cake, ice cream, candy are staples of all my kids' birthday parties. But as with everything in life, moderation is key, and I always like to balance the junk food that I serve with healthy food. That's why CLIF Kid snacks are so great -- as far as kids are concerned, they're treats, but parents love them because they're a healthy snack made with wholesome, organic ingredients. We recently held a DisneySide party to celebrate my son's 11th birthday, and CLIF Kid generously supplied us with some of our favorite CLIF Kid snacks. Check out all the CLIF Kid goodies we enjoyed at the party:
CLIF Kid ZBar Protein bars are the perfect healthy treats for growing kids, because each one contains a whopping 5 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber. CLIF Kid only uses organic ingredients so you can feel good about serving your kids healthy, wholesome food.
We received a box of the Peanut Butter Chocolate flavor (photo above) and 2 boxes of the Chocolate Chip flavor. My kids love the flavors (my favorite is the Peanut Butter Chocolate) and think they're as good as any bakery treat.
Instead of fruit gummies or fruit chews, why not serve CLIF Kid ZFruit & Veggie ropes? They're tangy and chewy and kids love them. Unlike most fruit snacks, these also contain real veggies -- sweet potato juice, sweet potato puree, carrot puree, red beet juice concentrate -- for an ever bigger health punch. We received 3 flavors -- Cheery Cherry, Mango Mania, and Blueberry Blast -- all of which taste great!
Like all CLIF Kid snacks, these do not contain any artificial flavors or high fructose corn syrup, and each bar or rope is made with organic ingredients. You can definitely feel good about serving CLIF Kid snacks at birthday parties, on playdates, in school lunchboxes, in Valentine's Day parties, or any day of the year.
Our party was a huge success, and a big part of the credit goes to the CLIF Kid snacks I served! The party was held at a local paintball field. I placed a CLIF Kid ZBar Protein bar on each guest's plate so they would have something healthy to munch on besides cupcakes and rice krispy treats.
3Po and his guests spent over an hour running, dodging, darting, shooting, playing, and being extremely active. After their paintball session was over, they were sweaty and tired and very, very hungry. Needless to say, the kids devoured the CLIF Kid snacks in no time.
Each guest received a CLIF Kid ZBar Protein bar and a CLIF Kid ZFruit & Veggie rope in their goody bag, so they got to take some of that goodness home with them. Thank you, CLIF Kid, for helping to keep my kids and their guests healthy and happy!
