deLish snacks for our personal kid basketball tournament

We don’t have a favorite team in this house when it come’s to basketball. Before kids, I’d have a very strategic way of cheering on the team of choice during a basketball tournament in the month of  March. Oh yeah, super scientific: the team wearing blue. If there wasn’t any blue, I’d just choose based on which state the team was from. I know, don’t steal that strategy – I’ve got it patented. KIDDING.

Keeping the kids fueled, and having a good time, requires a lot of great snacks. We can’t have one of them losing steam during the tournament, and let’s just say Mom and Dad need some good stuff to munch on during these basketball tournament games. It’s kind of a no brainer where the snacks will come from, right? Wait for it………

…that’s right, Duane Reade. I know. You didn’t see that coming at all, right? November Sunflower went to Duane Reade for deLish snacks? It can’t be! Yeah, yeah. Put the sarcasm away, folks. Of course Mama sunflower went to Duane Reade! I’ve got players to feed, and me and the husband to keep well-nourished for this crazy basketball tournament in our home. Wait, what? You thought we’d be watching the college games on television, with our kids by our sides? Heck no! After you’ve got kids, it’s all about them entertaining the family!

Little Miss fills up for the game with her snack of choice.

Since it’s March, it’s still a bit chilly around Long Island, so there’s no playing basketball outdoors just yet. Instead, our tournament is played inside with our kid friendly basketball hoop. Who wants to watch college kids nobody knows? I’d rather watch my monkeys battle it out in our own home!

Which kid/snack combo will win our basketball tournament?
