If you're a parent, you know that the last thing you're worried about when planning your kid's birthday party is 'the parent's nutritional needs.' The buffet of kid-friendly delights are not always in step with your current meal plans. If you have to stay at the party with your child, plan ahead by... (1) Eating Before You Go (2) Stash a Healthy Snack in your Purse/Pocket (3) Reach for a Bottle of Water (to keep you full) (4) Split that Princess Tiana slice of cake with a buddy
Raisins are great! They take a little while to eat and can fit in your purse/pocket easily. And, have no mess.
Granola Bars are as tasty as candy bars, but much healthier than that Pizza on the buffet table.
