One of the questions I get asked most when it comes to eating healthy with kids is “What do you give them for SNACKS?”. Especially when your kids are toddlers, snacks become a staple in most parents lives, and finding snacks that are easy to pack in your bag and not chalk full of sugars and preservatives….that your kids actually like…is no small fete! As most parents know snacks are serious business…they can buy you 10 extra minutes in the grocery store, pull you out of massive meltdowns in the checkout line, and give you the extra 10 minutes you need to make it home before nap time! So, I thought it would be fun to do a series on here of my favorite snacks, that my kids love and I also feel great about giving them. I’ll share some of my favorite home-made recipes as well as a few of my favorite brands that we always have on hand.
First up, That’s It. While I consider all of our partnerships with brands really seriously, I especially do so with food, as I am so passionate about being conscious of what we are choosing to put into our bodies. So when I partner with food brands I’m always doing my research and making sure that I feel good about what the product is made out, and snacks are a tricky one because traditional kids snack items….a granola bar…is really just a candy bar in disguise!
A little bit about the brand: That’s it. is based on the idea that nature knows best, meaning that their bars use only natural, GMO-free fruit and NOTHING else which makes them both simple and clean. With each bar you get two whole servings of fruit + no preservatives, added sugar, concentrates or purees.. I could not love these more and for places like the zoo where actual apples being eaten, dropped, and eaten again makes me cringe…these are a great option+ no washing, cutting or peeling required.
We partnered with That’s it. to try ALL 9 of their fruit bars and I can honestly say that while Charlie prefers the Apple + Strawberry best, and Jett the Apple + Banana, and my favorite go-to the Apple + Coconut…we have devoured each and every flavor…there is not a single one we haven’t loved!
Bonus: the bars are also Paleo certified and Whole30 compliant…as if I could love them more!
As always, let me know if you have any questions, and I would love to hear your favorite healthy go-to snacks!
