After school studying made easier with Glutino Foods #ad

September 14, 2015

As we enter the second week of school, things here are quickly getting back into study mode. This is my daughter’s last year of High school, and they already have projects and assignments due. It doesn’t start off slowly for them and I know when she gets home after school she is ravenous and ready for a boost of energy before she gets to work on those projects.  Having friends over to study after school and collaborate on projects means that I will have hungry teenagers to feed.  Most of my daughter’s friends are not gluten free, but I love that I can make snacks for them that they can all eat.  Glutino foods really helps with this… actually her friends now buy the pretzels on their own because they like them so much! They are really addictive.

When there are a few kids gathered, having a few quick snacks and desserts on hand helps get over those hunger pains so they can concentrate on homework. A hit, and a favourite around here are quick and easy snack bowls.  The shape of the Glutino Foods Tortilla dippers really helps make these snacks easy to munch on while getting work done at the same time.

Serve and watch them enjoy!

We always have tzatziki and hummus on hand so makes getting these snacks ready very handy but you can certainly try your own variation of this. I love that they are enjoying a quick and healthy snack after school while getting homework done!
