New Balance bare bars are the perfect on-the-go snack to pack in every bag during the busy season
RONKONKOMA, N.Y., Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- No doubt about it, the back to school season is busy! In fact, in a national survey, Balance Bar learned that 77% of families have three or more activities per week once school starts, making it the busiest time of year for them according to 61% of the respondents. To handle this busy time of year, many parents find their purses, totes and other bags chock full of important supplies. To help prepare for this school year, Balance Bar has partnered with Jenny Ingram, a nationally recognized parenting expert and mom blogger from Jenny on the Spot, to offer advice for packing the perfect back to school bag.
Ingram believes organizing bags with several must-have items will make every parent's life easier and more balanced as they dash from activity to activity. One of her must-pack essentials is the NEW line of Balance bare® bars. Made with simple, nutritious ingredients including whole nuts and fruits, Balance bare® bars are the perfect snack for busy moms and dads that kids will love too. The bars are non-GMO, certified gluten-free, soy free and come in three delicious flavors – Mixed Berry Nut, Sea Salt Caramel Nut and Sweet & Spicy Nut.
"Back to school is always an exciting and busy time for parents and children; full of new friends, fun activities and lots of running around," said Jenny Ingram of Jenny on the Spot. "It's also the time of year I find my purse getting weighed down not only with my stuff, but my kids' as well. Staying organized is key – and so is staying energized with nutritious snacks like Balance bare® bars."
Here are some of Jenny's tips to survive back to school season with a well-organized and expertly packed bag:
