A healthy nutrient packed snack filled with fall flavors, No Bake Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites.

So as I’m sure most of you know I have a 2 year old little boy who is full of life and adventure.

What little boy isn’t full of adventure and energy, right? The world is meant to be explored and they are going to explore it no matter what! He is curious about everything, and rightfully so.

Everything to him is new and interesting. So most days he analyzes things (in his little man mind) and tries to figure out how to do something himself.

One of my favorite things to do with my little man is cook! (big shocker I know) I’m not much of a DIY craft girl, but give me a kitchen and I’ll whip ya up something amazing.

I’m hoping that love for food will pass down to little man as well. Although, I’m pretty sure it has because he knows who Bobby Flay is and pretends to cook up cookies with his dominos and darts. haha!

One of the ways I keep my little man fueled up for a long day of exploring and learning is with good healthy nutritious snacks.

Homemade is the way to go in my book and since we are making it at home, little man gets to help.

These No Bake Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites are super easy to make, all you do is throw everything into a bowl, mix it up, and form it into balls.

Your kids will have a blast mixing all kinds of ingredients together, making a mess {let’s just say we ended up with some pumpkin oats on the blinds}, and then forming the mixture into little balls to eat later.

The best part is, these Pumpkin Energy Bites are packed with all kinds of nutrients to help your little one stay healthy and they won’t even know what hit em’ because they are so stinking tasty!! {muuahahaha.. evil laugh}

Another nutrient sneak attack is Smoothies! Now that I’m working two days a week I don’t always have time to make a smoothie for little man during the day so the next best thing is store bought. But if I’m gonna do store bought I want to make sure it’s a good quality product which is why I went with Frusion Go Wild!

Guys! Have you had this stuff yet? Frusion Go Wild! is packed with untamed bold fruit flavors that your kids will “go wild for” {corny.. but true!} Little man asks me for them at least twice a day!

“Smoovie mommy… smoovie?”

Now how can you say no to that?

Frusion Go Wild! is also 25% largerย than the leading kidsโ€™ smoothie = more nutrients for your kids! Score! It has a resealable cap = less mess! Score again!

Are you liking it yet?

It has 2x the calcium than the leading kidsโ€™ smoothie, no artificial colors, flavoring, or sweeteners. Which in my world is a major bonus.

I know I’m a busy mom but healthy is always my number one concern! Their little bodies are still forming and growing so I want to make sure I’m giving it as much “good stuff” as I can. ๐Ÿ™‚

Well… as you can see below my “big man” needs his nutrients too!

These No Bake Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites paired with a smoothie is a great snack option that your kids will love and leave you feeling like the world’s best mommy (or daddy).

Although, I’m sure you already are.

This just ups your status with the kiddos, which is always a bonus but you’ll have making them! hehe
