About BeanStalk Express Snack Time Survival Kit

 

New information from the US Department of Health and Human Resources reveals that despite national efforts to curb childhood obesity here in the US, rates are still climbing!  Because the years of preventing childhood obesity are over by the time our children reach kindergarten, parents need products that offer a fun and practical approach to teaching their children balanced nutrition!  And we have it!

 

Welcome to Beanstalk Express, the home of the world’s first snacktivity game, The SnackTime survival kit At Beanstalk Express, we’re parents too!  And like you, we also envisioned raising fruit-and-veggie loving eaters, avoiding processed foods and “just saying no!” to drive through windows!  But then something happened along the way … We had kids!

After enduring the preschool battles with picky eaters and around-the-clock requests for sweets and goodies, we realized what was missing when it comes to inspiring our kids with healthy habits that will last … Food marketers have been making junk food fun for decades. So what if we made healthy choices just as much fun?  We decided to try it … and it worked! When you empower children with the ability to make their own choices, amazing things happen!  At Beanstalk Express, we make healthy fun!  And in the process, they become habit!image

Wooden Clock Board

Features one working clock, 3 control clocks with moveable arms, and 3 corresponding hooks to hold snack cards in place.

 

33 Snack Cards

On the front are pictures of delicious snacks to choose from. On the back is important tips and information to learn from.

 

How it works!

1.Each morning, Mom or Dad selects between 4-6 snack cards that are available to make that day from the deck.

2.From these cards, kids can choose their 3 snacks for that day.

3.Mom sets the control clocks to the desired snack times and hangs the snack cards on the corresponding hooks.

4.And now it's up to the kids! By Keeping an eye on the clocks, the kids alert Mom to when it's SNACK TIME!

5.Mom takes the snack card off the hook and serves up the snack.

  13. What a great idea! I like the 3 control clocks with moveable arms the best because my little one can see the time for himself.
