You know what the fun part about Summer is? For me, it's the freedom to do things you can't get away with during the school year. Luckily for my girls, they totally get to benefit from Mama saying "Yes" to everything.
"Mom, can we wear our princess dresses?" Sure. "Mom, can we put on makeup?" Yeah, go ahead. "Mom, can we eat outside in our playhouse?" Umm... Sure. Even though I am saying yes to all of this fun stuff, what my girls aren't seeing is that I am sneaking in rules and nutrition into these summer meals where I can. Yes, they can wear their princess dresses, but first they have to put their laundry away. Yes, they can eat outside in the playhouse, they can even have their favorite Kraft Easy Mac N Cheese, but I am going to sneak in some nutrition where I can.
I knew that one day, I would have to invest in a Club membership to feed my growing girls. I was actually pretty excited to head to Sam's Club and become a member to shop since they have some amazing new deals with their Instant Savings.
Check out the amazing deals that I got at Sam's Club, you can see all the savings for yourself in the Instant Savings Booklet. Seriously, you can not beat these prices whether you are stocking the pantry or even for a party.

You want to know my secret to our balanced meal? I chop up hot dogs for protein (any meat goes really well) and broccoli then saute them with some cooking spray and add them to Kraft Easy Mac Cups. See, a quick easy meal that is full of nutrition!
Now for the grains, we just make a quick grilled cheese with the classic KRAFT singles (calcium) and add Kool Aid Jammers (full fruit serving) for a beverage and now your kids have a balanced meal that they can eat anywhere. Even in a playhouse or "castle."
I feel like I deserve a reward every time my girls happily eat their veggies.
Every day is different with my girls. Some days they are princesses, some days they are pirates, some days they want to join the circus or race their bikes all day long. Thanks to Sam's Club and Kraft for the great deals, it is easier for this Mama.
