It’s August and already time to start thinking about back to school?! When I think about school, I remember the scramble right after school to feed the kids a hearty snack before they leave for their sports practices. They really need a mini-meal but it needs to be quick and sometimes, even portable!

Chicken nuggets are extremely popular with my kids and I always am sure to keep an extra ketchup in the pantry because my kids won’t eat chicken nuggets without an alarming amount of ketchup. Ideally, I would heat them in the oven, but after school, there’s generally no time. My kids — ages 10, 13 and 15 — have learned to work the microwave to heat up the nuggets themselves.

I took my kids to Walmart for the first time. It’s two towns over so I usually go myself when they are in school. The first stop was the anti-bacterial station for free wipes. I’m not sure why, but they really liked that and happily wiped down the shopping cart. It reminded me of when they were in preschool and loved washing the big plastic car.

We went to the frozen section and they picked out after school snacks to stock up. PickyKidPix, ever the price shopper, was impressed by the low prices. We talked about Walmart being a very successful company and how they focus on very small things to make their operations more efficient like having their reloading their transport trucks on the way back from a delivery.

Fun nuggets caught my son’s eye. He has always loved dinosaurs and his interest has renewed with the latest dinosaur blockbuster at the movies.
