Don’t judge a mama who loves her kids’ snacks. Especially when the snacks are DELICIOUS and HEALTHY for you. The big kids have been enjoying some treats from Bolthouse Farms Kids™ over the past few days…and they finally caught on that I was snacking, too.
C’mon. It’s hard not to when this snack line has adorable messaging, colorful packaging, and is filled with great taste. Bolthouse Farms Kids™ is a healthy snack that is found in the produce section of your local grocer (Pittsburghers – Giant Eagle is where we grab ours!). They are “on-the-go” sized snacks made from real fruits and veggies.
Even my protein lover Evan has been enjoying the freshness (check out the Instagram video of him taking his first sip of Strawberry Meets Banana, a fruit smoothie packed with 1 1/2 servings of fruit in each bottle — with no dairy for his big sister!). Like I said…I’ve been taking them for healthy additions to my lunches and breakfasts, and Arianna is ready to ask Bolthouse Farms Kids™ if they can sponsor all her breakfasts (she loves them that much, especially because they are easy to open).
Personally, I love the Fruit Tubes the best out of the snacks we tried out. They are fruit purees in tubes that are easy to tear open and enjoy. Bonus? They freeze well and make for a cool treat on these hot summer days. With 30-40 calories, these are great snacks for the whole family.
We also got to test out Veggie Snackers. The “Carrot Meets Ranch” was one of my favorite snacks while pregnant with the twins. The kids would taunt me for eating the kid carrots, but who cares. You “unleash tremendous flavor” by opening up ranch or chili lime flavoring to coat the carrots and give them a ‘lil kick of all natural seasoning. It’s hard to share this snack, but I do.
What is your go to for a healthy snack? Which are you most excited to try?
