Since I came back from my summer vacation, I slowly started to feel the rush of Back to School. Literally two days after we arrived, we restarted the kids activities & sports, I set out to complete their school supplies (and still have more to get from their list), and of course there is clothes shopping I need to somewhat finish before September rolls in.

I truly did my best to take time to enjoy my family, friends, and travel this summer as once fall rolls in, I know it will be such a tight schedule around here that I’ll need all the practicality I can get in all aspects of our life. A major one is having balanced, and quick snacks on hand for the afternoon after I pick up the kids and before we head to our extracurricular endeavors.

Today I want to show you three NESTLÉ® options that help make my hectic mom life easier during the school year. It’s a brand that I am familiar with since my childhood, and now I enjoy it with my kids. I’ll admit right away; although it’s all for the kids; these snacks are so yummy I can never resist to take a bite myself. 🙂 These three little helpers are NESTLÉ® NESQUIK®, HOT POCKETS®, and NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Cookie Dough. You can find all three at Safeway.

First I’ll start with my sons favorite. I always prefer to make cookies at home instead of buying them ready made, but I have to agree I rarely have time to make them from scratch even though I would love to.

NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Cookie Dough gives me the best of both worlds. It comes ready in small cubes. You just put a baking sheet in a baking tray, separate each piece of dough, and in about ten minutes you have delicious chocolate chip cookies baked at home. LOVE!

I love to serve milk to my kids as an after school snack for obvious nutritious reasons however I also like to make it more attractive & delicious for them. NESTLÉ® NESQUIK®  is my older daughters favorite; and mine too. We put a teaspoonful in a mug, and pour milk over. It is SO yummy, and makes a wonderful drink to have while chatting about their day.

I also LOVE to make a healthy smoothie with Nesquik that all my kids enjoy. Here is the easy recipe I use; this makes enough for about 3 people. (4 if you are using small glasses)

  • Blender half full with Ice
  • 2 cups of Milk
  • 3 tablespoons of Nesquik
  • 2 Bananas
  • On top of the Smoothie, in your glass you can optionally use a scoop of Whipped Cream

My youngest daughter can’t get enough of Hot Pockets. We love the Pepperoni Pizza version. It comes in a perfect kid appropriate size if you are eating a single serving, however two of them come in a box for all the adults too. 🙂
