As much as I love preparing fun snacks for after school, some days I just need something I can grab and hand the kids. Working from home keeps me very busy, and as the girls get older it's nice for them to be able to help themselves to snacks when they need them rather than interrupting me every time they want something.
It's hard to know what snacks they'll love without trying them. We do lots of fruits, veggies and nuts for snacks, but it's a nice change of pace to mix it up every once in a while.
So when I discovered NatureBox recently, I was excited to try the service. Each month you receive 5 new snacks to try. You can either pick and choose which snacks you want to sample, or be surprised.
However, you can enter your criteria based upon your food preferences or allergies, which is so awesome. I was able to filter my selections to all be gluten free and non-GMO. You can also choose milk free, soy free, nut free, vegan, no sugar added and 15g carbs or less! It's so customizable to your family's diet. And NatureBox snacks contain wholesome ingredients, with no artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors.
Based upon the restrictions I set, we chose our first 5 NatureBox snacks to try.
These Pistachio Power Clusters were a huge hit in our house. They were really delicious, and all of us were wishing the bag was bigger!
The Carrot Strawberry Fruit Chews were also really good. They are so much healthier and tastier than the “fruit” snacks you can get at the grocery store. These would be a great treat in school lunches.
The Pumpkin Cranberry Crave was your standard trail mix. However, I loved it because it was totally natural with no added sweeteners to take away from the natural flavors of the ingredients.
I absolutely loved the Cheddar and Onion Sunflower kernels. The flavor almost gives you the sense you're eating something unhealthy like chips, but sunflower seeds are so much healthier. These would make a great on the go snack.
We really loved the quality and variety of snacks we received from NatureBox! If you're looking for some new snacks for your family, give their service a try!
