Kid’s Snack Organization for the Fridge

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Mott’s®. The opinions and text are all mine. #MottsMovieBonus

kids snack organization pinSchool just ended for my son.  With long, busy days in summer ahead I like to keep a bunch of healthy snacks available and within reach so that my son can get them himself.  I dedicated one shelf in the fridge to store all the snacks, and today I’m sharing my simple snack organization system with you.

I have two bins that I divided in half. The first one has fruits and veggies in it. Right now I have Mott’s® Applesauce Pouches and grapes for fruit. For veggies, I have sugar peas and carrots.

The easiest are the applesauce pouches because those come already portioned out.  Right now the Mott’s Applesauce pouches have characters from The Secret Life of Pets on them and my son thinks they are really cute.

Each time he has a snack he has to choose something from a different category. My son is learning to read but for now the pictures and colors help him know which foods are the same category.

Here are the labels I used if you would like to print and use them too:

While on a shopping trip at Walmart I purchased 2 packs of Mott’s Juices and 3 packs of Mott’s Applesauce Pouches, for a total of 5 Mott’s products.
