The Health Maniacs

Packing Snacks for the Pool

If you follow me on Instagram [specifically my Instagram stories] then you’ve likely witnessed our summer season plan: some do the job. Mainly pool. Not a lousy lifetime, am I appropriate?!  And fortunate for the Serbinski crew, we not only belong to our community pool, but we know a couple of people today with backyard swimming pools. Counting my blessings with this one… for the reason that if there’s just one BUG the kids got from their Momma, it’s the drinking water-bug. We like being around or on water when we can!

From the photo above and the title of this write-up, I guess you can guess wherever I’m getting this snacking roadshow upcoming: the pool! We are in the center of the months stuffed with moist auto seats, SPF perfume, and sure, pool snacks. Oh and some added calorie burning for Mother. Since I’m paying my time running from the little pool to the significant pool looking at the kiddos. I’m also handing out snacks to the young children because there is one thing swimming appears to provide on other than a wet car ground, and that is a Major Urge for food.

Here’s a snapshot of some of our most loved pool treats:

Whether it is the pool, seashore, park, heck, a buddies residence, if I’m in cost of bringing snacks, I always carry two matters necessary to clean up-up: wipes and trash bags. I have also gotten a small smarter [just a little] and convey fruits and veggies that truly hold very well in warm temps: clementines, grapes, and apples for fruit, and then peppers and cucumbers for veggies.

As much as the snacky-snacks go, you can’t go incorrect with just about any cracker, cookie, or chip. To make your life less difficult you can do a single of two issues: prepackage the treats by adding them to unique Ziploc luggage, or provide paper plates/bowls to serve although at the pool. This has served me fairly control the mess my staff leaves behind as properly as the cleanse-up for Mom. As much as drinks go, I’ll provide canned flavored drinking water or water bottles. Milk and pool drinking water just does not sit perfectly with me. So clear liquids it is!

I have witnessed several family members stroll into the pool with a wagon for towels, floaties, and food stuff, and am thinking about ordering a single from Amazon. Coolers also function too! When I convey refrigerated solutions I tend to serve individuals initial [like the Lunchables above]. 

So tell me: what pool necessities [both snacks and equipment!] do you pack?
