Fruit Snack Boxes are a fun way to make snacks for your kid’s snacks!! As a new soccer mom, it was intimidating to see what other moms pulled together as snacks for the team so it set the bar kinda high. However, these boxes are perfect because it also gave them something to eat over in the car after the game was over! This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser.

Growing up I never once played soccer or even watched a soccer game!!! My high school didn’t even have a soccer team nor did very many schools in my area. When I married my ex-husband I was introduced to the world of soccer. He played indoor soccer and we watched professional soccer games. The past couple of years my son Michael has shown a big interest in soccer. Last year he joined his first recreational leaguer!! I had no idea what I was headed into when I agreed to. Now we are in a select team league which means tournaments, clinics, and tryouts as well.
Now during our first year, I ended up diving in way more than I ever thought I would have. I ended up assistant coaching and then took over the position of the coach!! I have to say I am now a huge soccer fanatic like my son!! He had leveled up last year to U8 due to the fact there were no U7 teams for him to play on. Well this upcoming year he would be U8 but he wanted to try out for the select team, he ended up making the U10 team!! Shocked and proud momma but that means we are diving into year-round soccer!!! Tournaments, games, practices and so much more we are going to be on the go so much and I can’t wait to cherish every moment of it!
Part of being a soccer mom means that you are also snack mom at least once a season. And let me tell you when it comes to soccer the boys play hard and they eat hard!! It seems like even with a snack during half time and after the game, the boys were still always starving!! We found that packing a variety of snacks is a great way to keep everyone happy. From that, the idea of snack boxes came from.
