As we well know as moms, we're always looking for snacking options for our kids. We try to eat healthy food and balanced meals at home and at the regular restaurant but sometimes forget about choosing the right snacks to satisfy our kids between main meals. Also, we need something practical, for on-the-go sitauions.
Every supermarket has hundreds, if not thousands of options. All lined up waiting for us to take them home. usually and unfortunately I tend to notice that the most unhealthy choices are the ones located right in front of us or, at least, at hand reach. marketing has targeted our children with aggressive and attractive advertising on TV, outdoor campaigns, magazines, online...everywhere! The kids can even recognize a brand or product by their cover - package or box. Mainly because it's associated with a character made specifically to be appealing for young children.
But, let´'s face it. Our children will be eating what's inside the package, not the character. And along comes a humongous list of ingredients, most of them unpronounceable for any children or adult, for that matter! That is what we need to change - I want to feed my kids with food made from ingredients that I know and with the minimal amount of artificial stuff possible! None would be perfect!
The most recent snacks we tried at our house were MySuperFoods snacks. They also come in beautiful amazing packages and I would love them to see in the selves of every supermarket! They are safe, nutritious and delicious, everything we want from a snack!
The MySuperFoods company was, in fact, created by two moms that felt the need to make more nourishing and natural snacks for young children like their own. Realizing that there was this gap in the healthy snacking for kids they decided to take matters into their own hands and develop all natural, healthy and nutrient dense snacks.
The brand offers 3 different kind of snacks:
If you're looking for on-the-go options or big packs to have at home MySuperFoods has an option for you. You can get regular boxes of cookies or multi-pack boxes, ideal for the kids lunchboxes! Just pick your flavor and choose the size you want. The Granola Bites and bars are great for a snack at the park or at the beach and the portion sizes are great! Today my son took the Granola bites to Summer camp and they were a hit!
You can buy MySuperFoods products online (Amazon, Jet, Thrive Market) or at the stores. Just look up on the website here and check out the store locator.
The other amazing thing about this company is the social aspect of it. At the heart of the MySuperFoods creators was the desire to help end child hunger across the country. Apart from feeding their children nutrient dense food they also wanted to help other children. According to Feeding America, in late 2015 the USDA estimated that there were 13 million children living in food-insecure households.
The program "Pack a Lunch Give Back a Lunch" does precisely that! It's so simple to participate and contribute and, really, ANYONE CAN DO IT!
Now that you became aware of the brand and its philosophy, please, share and help a child.
With the cookies we got from MySuperFoods we're having some great snacking around here and today was parfait day! Enjoy and make some yourself to celebrate Summer and great fund days outside!
Don't they look cute! And they're so easy to make! Just add yogurt to the bottom of the cup, add some fresh fruit and decorate with some good looking MySuperFood cookies. We used "Honey Heroes" - they are so cute it's even sad we have to eat them!!!
For the sweeter tooth add a dollop of sugar free jam. Delicious!
There are many days of Summer left and so much more flavor combinations! Which will you choose? Next time I'm thinking blueberries and banana with a hint of cinnamon!
