5 Healthy Snacks For The Whole Family

March 19, 2018

In honor of National Nutrition Month, I’m sharing our favorite healthy snacks. These snacks are perfect for moms, dads, and kids – and they’re such great alternative options for inevitable snacking throughout the day!

1) Brew Dr. Kombucha

Kombucha is ALL the rage right now! What is it, you may ask? Kombucha is a fermented tea. The kombucha from Brew Dr. is live and active, 100% RAW, probiotic, and unpasteurized. And it’s non-alcoholic – they use a form of non-heat distillation to gently extract the alcohol but keep the goodness.

Flavors:

Clear Mind: Their most popular flavor. A brilliant botanical flavor with notes of rosemary and sage. Each herb in the recipe is noted for its ability to assist in mental clarity and focus. (This flavor was my personal favorite – I loved the taste of it!)

Herbal Uplift: This is the brew for the seasoned kombucha drinker. Made with medicinal herbs, this ideal blend aids in maintaining overall health and wellness.

I love this drink for snack time because I can enjoy it guilt-free. It’s a great alternative to soda or juice as a tasty, low sugar, low calorie, better-for-you
beverage.

2) JOLLY TIME Simply Popped Popcorn

We LOVE popcorn in our house! I love having it in the pantry because it’s such an easy snack to make for the kids – and they constantly request it.

We love JOLLY TIME Simply Popped Pop Corn because it is made with just four simple ingredients: butter, sea salt, popcorn and oil. This gluten-free, fiber-rich snack contains zero grams trans fats and no hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils. Seriously, isn’t that amazing?!? With only 35 calories per cup, Simply Popped is a snack people can feel good about eating. And I love that my kids LOVE it! To us, it tastes better than other popcorns we have tried in the past.

Simply Popped joins JOLLY TIME’s 18 other microwave popcorn varieties and is sold in packages of either 3 or 6 packs. It is currently available at select retailers nationwide. Learn more here.

3) nutpods Dairy Free Creamer

I don’t drink coffee, but my husband does. He is trying to be more conscious of his eating habits and making healthier choices, so he was super excited to try this healthy coffee creamer! nutpods dairy-free, plant-based creamers are made from almonds and coconuts, contain no artificial ingredients and blend beautifully in coffee, tea or cooking. If you drink coffee and are looking for a healthier creamer option, trade up your usual dairy creamer with nutpods – delicious taste, plant-based, no cholesterol.

Available in three flavors:

• Original
• French Vanilla (this was my husband’s favorite!)
• Hazelnut

4) Sprout® Organic Crinklez

Of course, we are always on the lookout for yummy, healthy snacks for my 23 month old son! Sprout® Organic Crinklez are a delicious new veggie snack for toddlers made from plant powered chickpeas and popped with colorful carrots, spinach, and beets that you can see in every bite. He has been loving these as his afternoon snack and on-the-go!!

Popped snacks are seeing big time growth. In its 2018 trends forecast, Whole Foods Market predicted that puffed and popped snacks will be a major trend in the coming year and Sprout’s new veggie and bean-based popped snack is sure to be a hit with toddlers! Learn more here.

5) JUNKLESS Chewy Granola Bars

I absolutely love granola bars as a quick, easy snack or to throw in my bag for days when we are on-the-go!

JUNKLESS CHEWY GRANOLA BARS – CINNAMON ROLL

The JUNKLESS Cinnamon Roll Chewy Granola Bar is almost like eating a cinnamon roll…soft, chewy and delicious…but it’s made with mostly oats. It’s perfect for a quick and easy breakfast, plus it has only 6g of sugar per 1.1 ounce bar!

JUNKLESS CHEWY GRANOLA BARS – CHOCOLATE CHIP

I love that the JUNKLESS Chocolate Chip Chewy Granola Bars are moist and chewy, and not dry and hard like most other brands. They are flavored naturally with chocolate chips with no added artificial chocolate flavors and no corn syrup of any kind. Simply delicious, with only 5g of sugar per 1.1 ounce bar!

I also love their Strawberry and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip bars!
