We’ve got yet ANOTHER Halloween event tomorrow and we’re so excited! By the time Halloween comes we’ll be all costumed and trick or treated out! Well…I’ve got yet another healthy treat option for you. I think a balance is really important, so parents and children aren’t limited to strictly candy. That would be my recommendation to all families offering “treats” for trick or treaters this year…offer a variety of treats (including healthy options).
One of my favorite things to do is peruse the aisles at Whole Foods in search of different foods to feed my son (he’s picky!). For awhile now, I’ve passed by Snikiddy Snacks for kids. I don’t know why, to be honest with you, because they’re actually really good (I try everything before my son eats it). Thanks to the company, we had an opportunity to try the Chocolate Chip Bites and the Grilled Cheese Puffs. Snikiddy Snacks are all natural snacks that come in handy packs and offer parents and children an alternative to products filled with trans fats, hydrogenated oils, high-fructose corn syrup, artificial colors/flavors, and preservatives. I’m a label reader, so when I looked at the back of the packaging, I liked that I recognized each ingredient (and the list wasn’t that long)! Snikiddy Snacks are made with ingredients you’ll find in your closet like whole wheat flour and unrefined cane sugar.
So, I suppose you’re wondering how they taste? Details! : ) My son preferred the Chocolate Chip Bites over the Grilled Cheese Puffs (but what child wouldn’t prefer sweet over salty?). I tasted both of them and I found them both good (just not enough!…I’m pregnant you know!). What a scene…mom eating her child’s snacks. I digressed. Since I have a toddler who likes to snack, I’ll definitely be choosing Snikiddy Snacks over conventional grocery store snacks. And the fact that they’re made with whole grains means that my son will be getting a bit of extra fiber in his diet (I can’t complain about that!). And why not hand out the snack packs instead of all that candy this year?
