We're officially in back-to-school season. What are some easy, smart choices for the snack jar?
Sometimes it seems school season should more properly be called snack season! Between making sure your child has healthy options in his or her bag on the way to school, to keeping a stash of â€œapprovedâ€ grab-and-go foods at home between meals, the balance of keeping a steady supply of favorites and making sure that supply is actually beneficial can feel like you're the one who has to be doing your homework!
Fortunately, there are many options that are kid-approved and require little to no time to make or prepare! Here are a few tried-and-true favorites â€¦ each packed with superfoods so the whole family can feel great!
Superfood Trail Mix - Trail mix: the original grab-and-go snack! Rather than buy a prepackaged version, customize your own blend by simply mixing all of your family's favorite dried foods in a jar â€¦ from pretzels to almonds to mulberries, just be sure to include generous quantities of superfoods to keep your mix nutrient-rich. You can even spice it up further with treats like coconut hemp pumpkin seeds or goji cashews!
Small Bites - There's a reason the Navitas line of Power Snacks is so popular! These bites are the perfect snack to swipe when you need something quick and delicious, and their condensed, small form makes them ultra convenient (and fantastically non-messy). 100% organic superfood ingredients like chia seeds, hemp seeds, and fruit make them a truly healthy indulgence, and their delicious variety of flavors ensure you can subdue all kinds of cravings.
Vegetable Chips - What did we do before veggie chips, made from kale, or even Brussels sprouts? Made in flavors that range from cheesy to chocolate, these all natural snacks are ideal to meet the munchies head on with a crunch and flavor that feels like a treat, but is made from whole vegetables.
Bars - Having a stash of superfood energy bars on hand is almost an essential for busy lifestyles â€¦ you never know when you'll need them, and kids love them! Navitas' new bars are packed with superfoods, and come in four delectable flavors for the whole family to enjoy.
