There is a very good explanation why I posted these Pokémon Go Energy Bites today. I mean, how can you even think about roaming the streets without an energy induced snack, right?
My six year old immediately jumped on the bandwagon and my iPhone was quickly summoned into the whole debacle. He started catching Pokémons in the kitchen, dining room, TV room, up and down the stairs, on our beds, in the shower and the trip quickly escalated into the garden and finally, out on the street.
He got streetwise you see.
Eventually he had built up more Pokémons than most teenagers and the chase even continued in the car, at the grocery store and the streets of our complex.
After one or two exhausting trips down the street, I offered to make a healthy snack for my VERY fussy little boy, let’s face it – my nightmares about a kid that doesn’t like food became reality.
All hail the Pokémon Go Energy Bites. I thought it was the perfect moment to spin a story about how much it takes out of you to go hunting down these little creatures and that you will need all the energy you can get.
As soon as my kid saw these little bites, he went kind of crazy and started chomping down – demanding these morsels make their way into his lunchbox the next day. The relief.
They consist of pretty much a whole lotta goodness, besides the fact that I used white chocolate to finish them off. Dates, natural peanut butter, rolled oats, chopped nuts and coconut made their way in and to say that this recipe is as easy as, well, catching Pokémons, is an understatement.
Am I the only one struggling to get my kid to eat more WHOLE foods? I think I must rethink my strategy and use one of his favorite pastimes as motivation. YES!
How much do you love the game? Next time, go prepared, and be sure to pack a little snack for the trip.
