School is out and summer is here, and kids will be kids! When they’re bouncing off the walls, just add the outdoors! Leave the phones and wifi behind and let CLIF Kids snacks fuels the adventures of your amazing kids!
Play time is so important for kids. Where did it go? I remember as a kid playing outside all day long. Kids need time to play every day, especially outside where they can run their energy out and soak up a little sun. It’s especially important in the summer months when it’s easy to let the kids stay inside and watch television or play video games all day.
With my kids, I try to take them somewhere so they can just be kids and have fun almost every day. During the summer months here in Texas, it can be difficult when it’s been 103 degrees outside for the past month. We tend to wait until closer to the end of the day, when everything has cooled off. We walk up to our neighborhood playground or take a hike in the park.
When it’s been sweltering for days, and we just want a bit of sunshine, we head to the closest splash park for some fun water play. Even my tween and teen can’t resist the splash park.
Usually when we head out to a park or playground I bring along a bag of snacks. Some of our favorites are the CLIF Kid’s Family of Snacks. My kids just love them!
CLIF Kid snacks are specifically crafted to nourish active kids so they can play. They make nutritious snacks for growing bodies with no high fructose corn syrup, synthetic preservatives, or artificial flavors. Check them out:
Zbar – CLIF Kid Zbar is an organic baked whole grain snack made with a nutritious blend of complex carbohydrates, three grams of fiber, and three grams of protein to maintain kids’ energy.
Zbar Protein – CLIF Kid Zbar Protein is a nutritious and delicious snack made with organic whole grains and 5 grams of protein for kids’ growing bodies.
Zfruit – CLIF Kid Zfruit is a tangy twisted fruit rope that is an excellent source of vitamin C and doesn’t need to be washed, cored, seeded, cut or refrigerated before eating – making it easy for kids to eat organic fruit snacks anytime, anywhere.
Zfruit + Veggie – CLIF Kid Zfruit + Veggie is a tangy, chewy organic fruit and veggie snack that is an excellent source of vitamin C, a good source of fiber and makes snack time fun with its peelable twisted ropes.
Not only are these great snacks for summer, but they’re perfect for the lunch box or an after school snack, too!
CLIF Kid is committed to play, and they’ve created an online Hub to inspire outdoor experiences that will encourage kids, as well as their parents, to get outside and be kids.

How do your kids love to play outside? Share their adventures outside with the hashtag #outtoplay on your social media!
It’s definitely important to encourage kids to get outside and play (especially since we’re int he technology age now and all kids seem to do is be attached to screens.) A trip to the park is always a great idea in my book <3
Outside play is so important. Luckily, down here in Georgia, the entire place is our playground, so the kids have plenty of room to roam.
I’ve never heard about these products but they seem like they would be a great snack for when you are on the go. Hope your kids are enjoying the last month of summer!
I haven’t seen these products, but it sounds great! I remember my mom used to get us to play by kicking us out after breakfast and telling us not to come back until lunch unless someone was bleeding – we had way too much fun!
I’ve seen these around but have never tried them. We may have to pick some up next time we’re shopping!
In this technologically advanced era we living in it’s hard to bring kids outside to play without their gadgets or even bribes lol
It is so important to get outside and move your bodies. It is just as important to fuel our bodies. This is a perfect snack to do it!
The kids look like they’re having so much fun! I love the Clif brand! My kids are older but they still spend time outside.
My siblings and I used to play outside a lot while we were growing up. It’s that most kids nowadays don’t do this.
its great to have kids play outside and have that summer experience, its sad to see most kids are inside playing games. Creating activitys and planning out the summer is a great way to give you child the best experiance possible
It looks like she had a blast! I couldn’t agree more. When my little girl is born, I want to make sure that she spends a lot of time out doors, so she can grow a love for outside, at an early age.
Kids should really spend more time in the outdoors. They’ll enjoy the sunshine and be able to socialize more.
Letting the kids get out to just be kids is a perfect concept. That’s what WE remember most about childhood, and they’re all good memories! 🙂
That looks like it was an absolute blast for the kids! My grandchildren go to the local water park from time to time and love it there! Thank you for sharing this great experience! 🙂
I love to see more products gear their ingredients more organic and kid healthy! The splash park looks like a blast!
I always encourage my daughter to go out and play instead of sit on the couch with a gadget in hand. I’m sure she’d like to try Clif kid SNacks
