This post is sponsored by RITZ Crackers, but the thoughts and words are my own.
Sharing is caring may sound cliché, but we take it very seriously in our household. The principles of sharing are a foundation we want to nurture in our two small children. Sharing teaches fairness and compromise.
Learning to share helps your children learn how to take turns, how to play cooperatively and how to keep friends.
Sharing is spreading that happiness around by allowing another to partake.
The idea of sharing food has brought people together for centuries. One of our favorite things to share together, in addition to meals as a family, is snack time. Whether we are pretending through imaginative play, reading books, or cuddling for movie night, one commonality that ties everything together is food.
Did someone say “another snack please mom?” If you have a little one in the house you’ve likely spent a lot of time prepping snacks: mid-morning snacks, after lunch snacks, stroller snacks, car snacks, I-just-brushed-my-teeth-snacks. Since kids have smaller tummies and they’re growing, they have to eat more frequently.
We like to opt for a variety of snacks, but certainly our go-to snacks are the ones that help fill them up. RITZ Crackers are incredibly versatile, you can enjoy them on their own, or pair them with your favorite topping. We also love many of the other cracker varieties like RITZ Toasted Chips. Two of our favorite flavors include the Cheddar and the Veggie. We like to put together a cracker board and share the mixed varieties.
Something as simple as our daughters sharing bites of their RITZ Crackers with one another illustrates the importance of selflessness. We all come from different backgrounds and some are more fortunate than others. For those less fortunate to the basic needs of food, RITZ and Walmart has partnered with Feeding America to help end hunger across the U.S.
According to Feeding America, “38 million people face hunger in the U.S. — including more than 12 million children. Hunger knows no boundaries — it touches every community in the U.S., including your own.”
For every RITZ product purchased at Walmart and Walmart.com during March, RITZ will donate $0.10, up to $1,000,000 to Feeding America to ensure that families can put food on their tables. An additional $1 donation will be made each time shoppers share the initiative from the Walmart.com brand page!
When we purchase RITZ products, we are excited to take part in something bigger than ourselves. We are thrilled to share with our girls that purchasing one of our favorite snacks helps others too. By demonstrating our desire to contribute positively to the world, our kids appreciate what they have.
Feeding America’s Hungry Children is purposed to stop food waste and eliminate child hunger altogether. We encourage you to purchase RITZ products in-store & via online grocery at Walmart and together we can be one step closer to ending hunger.
Want to take your impact up a notch? Bulk buy some RITZ products and donate them to your local food bank! The fulfilling feeling of giving back and contributing to society is unparalleled. There is something about feeding people that is the most innate good we can do. We hope you choose to join us!
