I have been compensated by Nature Valley for this post; however, I am sharing my own thoughts. All opinions are my own.
Summer is a seriously busy time for me and my kids.
My 14-year-old daughter has dance competitions, camps, tryouts, summer sessions… basically…a lot of dancing. She’s also preparing for high school this Fall (insert panicked emoji) so she’s been making checklists of all the things she needs to get and do. She’s also been talking–nonstop–about how excited she is about high school.
On the other hand, my 10-year-old son has football camp and then daily practices starting this week so his schedule is about to get insane, too. He’s also excitedly awaiting the start of fifth grade, his last year of elementary school. My older son just turned 20 and he’s also got a ton of stuff on his to-do list each day. Not to mention taking care of his sweet little 18-month-old baby boy.
Then there’s me. I work full-time, have my blog to keep up, my business to grow, and lots of mommin’ to do. No rest for the weary and all.
Busy is an understatement around here.
When we have such busy days, it’s important for us to be able to keep up. Not much is worse than feeling drained when there’s plenty left to do for the day. So I always appreciate something that helps us stay energized while hopping to and from our various activities.
That’s why I love Nature Valley XL Bars.
I start work at 6 AM and sometimes I look up and lunchtime has come and gone. When I get off at 3:30 I usually jump right into my scheduled activities for my business or blog and my mom taxi duties.
I know it’s important to not skip meals so I don’t do that often, but when I know I have a busy day ahead and I might not remember to grab lunch I make sure to have my Nature Valley XL Bars on-hand so I can keep going during a long day.
They easily fit into my bag for quick snacking on the go (so convenient!). The Nature Valley XL Bars are 50% bigger than regular Nature Valley Bars. That extra bar is perfect to fuel my day and satisfy my hunger.
They’re easy to find at Walmart right next to the regular Nature Valley Bars. They are available in many delicious flavors:
* Nature Valley XL Sweet & Salty Chocolate Nut & Seed Chewy Granola Bars
* Nature Valley XL Sweet & Salty Peanut Chewy Granola Bars
* Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Pretzel, Peanut & Chocolate Chewy Granola Bars
* Nature Valley XL Protein Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Bars
* Nature Valley XL Protein Mixed Nuts Bars
The best part is that my kids also love the Nature Valley XL Bars. So it’s a snack I can keep stocked that is perfect for the whole family!
I want to hear from you!
