Signs Your Kid Just Went From Hungry to Hangry

Tracking Pixel
When it comes to being hangry, the struggle is real ya’ll.  As a parents we have all been there, you know, that moment when our kid needs a snack STAT or the proverbial “it” will in fact, hit the fan. We like to call that a state of “hangry.” Unofficially, the definition of hangry is “being irritable as a result of feeling hungry.” To ensure you won’t get a headache and prevent “it” from hitting the fan, look for these signs that your kid is on the verge of going from hungry to hangry aka the point of no return. 

  • They’re digging through the bottom of your purse in search of leftover raisins from two play dates ago. 
  • Suddenly the fact that the sky is blue and the grass is green is the most pointless thing to ever happen in the universe. Everyone’s time would have been better spend making food. 
  • They can no longer make a decision about anything that does not involve what to put in their mouths at that very moment.
  • Speaking of decisions, they want toast. Oh you made toast? They hate toast now. What they meant was cereal. Please hurry before they change their mind again.
  • Your child begins rolling around on the floor clutching their belly dramatically proclaiming that you starve them and never cook anything. Anything!
  • You looked at him. Why did you look at him that way? WHERE IS THE TOAST? I MEAN APPLESAUCE, APPLESAUCE. 
  • Nothing you say will make the world a better place and why is the sky still blue? 
  • The last and final sign before the point of no return is absolute silence. At this point you should probably act fast. Unless they magically fell asleep. In this case, for the love all things fuzzy, don’t disturb them!

happy to hangryOn top of staving off a hunger attack, these are also one of my top recommended products for traveling with kids. They’re TSA friendly and there is no worse place for a kid to get hangry than a crowded plane. They are also incredibly helpful for keeping little ears equalized during takeoffs and landings, so be sure to pack 2 in your carry-on for each plane flight!

  1. I have to always keep snacks on hand for when we are traveling or out and about because my kids are BEARS when they get hungry. Kinda funny.

  2. I usually have lot of snacks at home & also during our travel, no matter whether it is a short or long trip as kids expect something right away when they are hungry. And that’s how I can make sure they don’t get Hangry!

  3. I try to avoid the hangries if I can. It can be nearly impossible when they get that way. Of course, when I’m hungry I feel that way sometimes, too.

  4. Even my teenagers get “hangry” so this is a great article. Applesauce pouches seem like the perfect fix–even for me sitting here at my desk!

  5. my daughter and I are the ones who’s always hangry hahaha We make sure we have time for food and some snacks along the way. this looks really good when travelling

  6. Truly agree that you should keep snacks around specially if you have kids travelling with you. This will keep them from being hangry.

    • Tsa by law, us required to allow nourishment items for children and babies. That’s why you can even put breastmilk and formula through security.

      You just have to allow items to be x-rayed, which doesn’t harm them.

      Tsa doesn’t like people to know they have the right to pack liquid food for their children.

  7. These pouches would be great to have around the house when the grandkids come over to visit. We all know how kids can go from sweet and calm to screaming and rolling on the floor in a matter of minutes!

  8. Tree top apple sauce is a favorite in the family. The kids love it and I love how it’s good for them. Thank you for the giveaway!!

  9. I agree that it’s important to keep snacks around. Especially when we are on the go a lot in one day. My kids love pouches like these too!
