With classes back in session, (soon, if not already!) families are looking to return to school-day routines and the busy schedule of afternoon events. For mom, this time of the year is more of a “New Year” than perhaps January 1st! The kids have new classes, new teachers, possibly even new schools, and it is a chance for moms to start new (or re-implement old) traditions to make the family function smoother.
When schedules become busy, one of the first challenges for mom is what to feed the hungry herd of children running off the bus who are ready for an afternoon snack. A great way to keep them happy is by skipping the sugary snacks and, instead, serving growing students a high protein mini-meal that will keep them full longer.
Slider sandwiches stuffed with crispy SeaPak Tilapia Tenders are the perfect solution. Topped with fresh green lettuce and a juicy slice of tomato, this snack is packed with flavor. If the crew prefers a shrimp slider, SeaPak Popcorn Shrimp can easily be swapped out for Tilapia Tenders to provide the same delicious hand-held nibble on-the-go. SeaPak Popcorn Fish even make a great substitution… the possibilities are endless!
Check out these recipes below for our favorite slider recipes. They will make moms New Year after-school routine something worth looking forward to!
