Having a full-time kindergartener can be a challenge at times. Especially after school. Since moving mid-year; after school, bus pickup can be such a struggle. Lunch and snack time are much earlier than what A is used to; so as soon as he gets off the bus he wants a tasty treat. We always aim for a rewards system since it’s been a struggle transitioning for a hyperactive kindergartener. That’s why today I am sharing a simple after-school kids treat idea just for hyperactive kids.

We always know when he has a bad day so when a good day comes and goes enforcing positive reinforcement is something as a parent you act on quickly. Especially, with a hyperactive child.

Recently we went to our local Walmart and found Betty Lou’s Fruit Bars and thought? This is the perfect after-school pick me up treat for his reward days.

They are a fruit bar that tastes just like pie. Who wouldn’t love that? Plus, Betty Lou’s Fruit Bars are non-GMO, vegan, Gluten Free and their sugars all come from natural fruit and fruit juices. Also, Betty Lou Fruit Bars do contain any of the 8 major food allergens identified by the FDA. These options are great for school-aged kids since you can never be too careful.
When having a hyperactive kindergartener, labels and ingredients mean everything. Especially, when kids end up craving unhealthy snacks. That is why having their sugars all come from natural fruit and fruit juices is genius. Any extra sugar that isn’t needed can be a no go for hyperactive kids. Plus they are having a healthier treat option without even realizing it.

After-school can be such a hectic time up until homework time. That is why I’ve created these treat cards to attach to the Betty Lou Bars. I just tape them to the top so A will know in his mind this is a reward treat so I only get these on good days. Make sure you download your treat cards HERE.

    I have a hard-to-handle kindergartener too. He nearly always gets his homework done at school, but we have daily piano and review time.

    And, after spending so much time in his classroom this year, I can absolutely see why he’s so wound up and obnoxious when he gets home… like today, he spent almost an HOUR on a computer based reading test. AN HOUR… for a SIX YEAR OLD… and they still have a computer-based math test, a dyslexia test, and another progress report test to do in the next week and a half. NO WONDER HE IS SUCH A MESS!

    Our school just announced they’re cutting art next year too.

      That’s a bummer. My son couldn’t handle even doing the computer test either
