Team Snack Packs

Rounded snacks for kids' sports teams

Parents in the US have to cope not only with transporting their little darlings to a raft of weekend sports events, often halfway across the next state in opposite directions, but also putting together a snack for the team at half time/game end. This entails coming up with bulk purchases of water, juice cartons, sandwiches, fruit, cookies, etc., all in a mad dash hurry to get to the game on time. All too often we just grab a couple of sale packs of Oreos and soda and damn our guilty consciences.

Enter the team snack - bulk packaged children's snacks, a variety of full and balanced snack meals in packs of 10, 15, 20, etc., in an easy tote box. Included in the base is a plastic garbage bag for convenient disposal of the remains. Sold from the fridge section, they will also fit conveniently into coolers.

Kraft South Beach Diet Wrap Kits http://www.kraftfoo...&shortname=sbdkraft
With a selection of these, at least you know your kids will be getting a healthy snack in a handy pre-packed kit. Plus they have the fun of assembling the wraps themselves. Not really cheap, but won't you look like the oh-so-caring, conscientious and dietetically-correct parent? [jurist, Nov 03 2005]

       Sounds like sushi or a carton of pot noodles.

       Lunchables come close, though not the healthiest by any stretch.

       Can you not just go to Sams club and stock your garage with cartons of unperishable kid feed?

       Do US children not eat fruit?   

       An alternative strategy would be to prepare some deep fried giant water bugs and chicken feet. You will shirley not be asked to cater again.

       It's more that the after game snacks are a celebratory thing, so most kids don't want an apple after playing the game (not to mention they probably had one at halftime or something) they want cheetos and stuff. Coincidentally stuff that is easy to buy the right amount of for an okay price. I think the harder part would be to find the stuff they actually want to eat. I like this idea. But I am curious about what would go into it, other thatn string cheese and a box of juice or a bottle of water.
