When my kids get home from school they are typically worn out from the long day. Trying to adjust to life back to school can be hard for kids who had such a relaxed summer schedule. After their homework, my kids enjoy a snack, drink, and then they head outdoors to play and unwind. Being active outdoors is really important to our family to promote good health, and burn off pent up energy.
While my children are blessed to have their very own fenced in play space in our backyard, many children do not. Thankfully, companies like the DPS are helping to make playtime easier for families across the country. The Let’s Play initiative was launched in 2011 by Dr Pepper Snapple Group, to provide the tools, places, and inspiration to make play a daily priority.
By 2017, DPS will provide nearly 10 million children across North America with new opportunities to play and be active through Let’s Play. They have partnered with KaBOOM! and Good Sportsis to eliminate the ‘play deficit’ by building and improving play spaces and providing grants for athletic equipment and gear.

One of my kid’s favorite after school snacks is this simple Apples and Yogurt Dip. Made with ingredients that are really common, this snack is nutrtious and pretty quick to assemble. Paired with some Mott’s and you have the perfect after school snack!
- 1 cup of vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
- 1 tsp of honey
- Apple wedges
Mix the honey, and yogurt together. Place it in a serving bowl, and sprinkle with cinnamon. Enjoy with some apple wedges, and a tasty drink like Mott’s Apple Juice, Yoo-Hoo, or Hawaiian Punch (my favorite).
Ever since I was a child, my mom would pack those drinks into my lunchbox, or have them waiting for me after school. Now, as a mom I give them to my children for a treat and pick me up after a long day. I was surprised to discover that these iconic drinks are from the Dr Pepper Snapple Group of drinks. With over 50 brands, and 100 products the DPS has a drink for all ages.
