A Few Staples for the Pantry This Summer


We are on our last week of school and then it is Summer Vacation! My kids are so excited, we already have quite the list of stuff we want to do. From swimming at the lake, pool, visiting GG, a few camping trips and hikes we will be busy!

A long bucket list of fun activities means that we are going to be on the go.. a lot! Keeping the kids fueled and hydrated is extremely important so I have already started updating our pantry with drinks and snacks that will keep the kids happy but also healthier options. I like to keep snack size everything for easy grab and go. We can throw everything into an ice chest or backpack.

Here are a few of the must have staples I keep for the kids and you can pick them all up at Target!

pantry must haves

  • BODYARMOR Sport Drink
  • Annies Fruit Snacks
  • Bananas
  • Justins Classic Almond Butter Squeeze Packs

These all make excellent snacks and keep my kids happy! They absolutely love BODYARMOR Sport Drink which happens to be packed full of electrolytes and is made with coconut water! My kids love it and are sport drink fans so to find out about BODYARMOR I was pretty stoked to switch them to something that is better for them.


You’re probably wondering what exactly BODYARMOR Sport Drink is right? Well BODYARMOR is packed with Electrolytes, Vitamins, and Coconut Water, It provides your body with the necessary hydration to perform at its best.  So when we are at the pool swimming or out on a hike I know that my kids will stay hydrated (and myself at that!)

I myself love having BODYARMOR after my runs or working out. I sweat a lot so I love I am adding back in electrolytes and vitamins. I love the flavors too.
