As a parent of young children, I find that one of the hardest things for me to do is to keep up with my kids. Field trips, activities, playing, running, jackets, bags…. It makes me tired just watching them! Usually, I feel like I need a nap. In reality, I probably just need a good snack.
I do what I can to keep my body in shape to keep up with our little monkeys. I hit the gym regularly and I try to eat right. Unfortunately, eating right on the go can be pretty difficult. Finding a wholesome, nutritious snack that you can carry with you is not easy. An apple or banana is great, but not always very filling or satisfying.
As I was walking through Walmart the other day picking up some lunchmeat for the kids’ lunches, I came across this great little snack pack. I found the Oscar Mayer P3 Portable Protein Pack nestled in among the prepackaged lunches in the lunchmeat section. They came in 4 different varieties, Applewood Smoked Turkey Breast, Applewood Smoked Ham, Rotisserie Seasoned Chicken Breast, and Slow Roasted Turkey Breast.
Each pack covers 3 different food groups: nuts and grains, meats, and dairy. The combination of meat, cheese, and nuts was not only tasty, but added a great protein boost to help me power through the rest of the day as opposed to that short lasting sugar boost that from sweet snacks or the sluggish reaction from salty, carbohydrate laden snacks.
In fact, I find that they are the perfect snack (and the perfect size) to stuff into my hiking bag for when I head out on those periodic escapes from my three little crazies. All snacking aside, sometimes keeping up means getting away! The P3 helps to energize me throughout my hike. It’s a smart, balanced way to give yourself a “pick-me-up” while on the go without overindulging.

There certainly is a lot to consider when one is trying to keep themselves on track, especially while raising kids. I wish I got to the gym regularly- it looks like the P3 packs have taken some of the planning out of your daily routine! #client

I absolutely love these. I went to restock the other day and our Walmart was sold out. So sad
Jennifer @ Mom Spotted says

I take a nap about once a year. Unfortunately, I wake up with a headache from a nap every time. I love that OM is now including nuts! Great snack options!
Great idea – I’d love to have healthier snacks full of protein all ready to go. I’ll keep an eye out for these.
I just saw these about a week ago. I really need to pick some up for my kids.
Those definitely look like a great snack while on the go. Full of great protein!
Those definitely look great for on the go snacking! I need to get some for my son to eat before his sports’ practices.
I’m always looking for new snack ideas! These look yummy. Thanks!

That’s the kind of snack for kids to have right after school and before their extra-curricular sports. I would tuck that into their backpack with an ice pack and I’d feel like they had the energy for their sport then
Cat Davis says
Those would be an easy to take-a-long snack when we take the kids out on long walks on the bike trail.

I love snacks that boost my metabolism and energy level. Sugary treats never do but they’re so tempting and easy. With these take along packs it will be easy to snack healthy on the go. I love it!
