As the mother of four daughters ages 6-13,
"I compete with afternoon chaos by being one step ahead of the pack, which includes keeping substantial, frozen snacks like Tyson Any'tizers products on hand," said Retton. "With Tyson Any'tizers products, I can show my girls how much I care by serving a warm snack that satisfies their hunger even to dinnertime."
Two New Varieties Help Parents Ful-fill Kids Hunger
Tyson Foods recently launched two new flavors of Tyson(R) Any'tizers(TM) snacks: Stuffed Chicken Cordon Bleu Minis and Stuffed Chicken Pepperoni Minis. With a tasty breaded outside layer and a delicious and hearty meat and cheese center filling, Tyson(R) Any'tizers(TM) snacks offer a fun-filled solution for serious afterschool snack attacks.
- Grab and Go:
Create a closet for after-school gear - whether for the gymnast or basketball player - where equipment can be stored for quick and easy access. This helps everyone get to activities fast, without mom running around at the last minute trying to locate much needed gear. This also provides an opportunity to teach children organizational skills.
- The Power of Protein:
Afternoons and snacks go hand-in-hand because active kids need energy to keep them going strong. Make sure you are providing them with quality snacks that are protein-packed, warm and delicious that will help get them through the afternoon, whether with homework or at their gymnastics practice. Keep the freezer full of convenient, substantial snacks and teach kids how to fuel their bodies!
- Engage Through Fun
While your teenagers may act like they want nothing to do with you, they do still need parenting and encouragement. Use fun activities as a chance to get to know what is going on in their lives and to bond. By approaching them during something fun, they will be more likely to share and participate in the conversation.
- Constant Communication
Afternoon plans can change at a moment's notice, so it's good to always have a way of communicating. Use text messages as a way to quickly get a message to your kids or always have your cell phone accessible in case they need to reach you. Another idea is to keep a dry erase board with daily schedules on your fridge.
- Keep the Car Stocked
When busy afternoons include running from practice to practice, make sure to keep your car full of activities, beverages and little necessities for emergencies. Keeping these types of things in the car at all times means you'll have less to think about when you're rushing out the door!
"Tyson Foods recognizes that today's families are busy, so our goal is to help parents by providing solutions for all meal occasions," said
