Educational Snacks? Count me in! I was at the store and saw Dick & Jane Educational Snacks and knew they would be a great fit in our lunches. The wonderful people at Dick & Jane agreed to send me some snacks to try out, and I have to say, they are a hit.
They have three varieties of snacks:
- US Presidents
- State & Capitals
- English & Spanish
The imprints are detailed and easy to read, and the kids love the lightly sweet vanilla flavor. I also like that they are made with all natural ingredients, and to my readers who may have allergies in the family, they are nut free.
|States and Capitals|
Living so close to Quebec, I wish that they had an English/French edition, though I realize Spanish is more prevalent throughout most of the country. And how cool would math facts be? Maybe someday... The Boy, my little list maker, particularly liked the state capitals, and The Girl's teacher asked me where we got them. I'd say that's a positive.
When schools don't always teach things like presidents and states and their capitals, and when, at least in our area, the only second language kids generally get before junior high comes in the form of Dora the Explorer, having a delicious snack with some educational value can't be a bad thing.
Also super cool? Dick & Jane Baking Company are supporting schools. A portion of their proceeds go to Adopt-a-Classroom. Literally putting their money where our mouths are.
I wish that they had more flavors - and maybe a savory line of crackers instead of just cookies. These aren't super sweet, but it would be nice to change things up sometimes.
