Organic Snack Food Giveaway!

My 3 ½ year-old son, Jonas, helped me check out Snikiddy Snacks . I was a little worried because I have a great love of health food but my son has never been much of an eater. He has been this way his entire life. Really, he only likes marshmallows and would eat them all day if allowed.
I gave him a bag of the Snikiddy Chocolate Chippers while we were riding in the car. His response? “CHOCOLATE! When I get home, I can get another bag!” When I asked if I could taste one, he replied very sweetly, “No, thanks.” These cookies got the picky child seal of approval!

I did sneak a taste out of another bag when he wasn’t looking and they are very good. They don’t taste like something is missing as a lot of healthy prepared snacks do. I can usually pass on a packaged cookie, but I could definitely eat an entire bag of Snikiddy Snacks! And that would be okay, because the entire (.85 oz) bag only contains 5g of fat and 120 calories!

We also tried Snikiddy Grilled Cheese Puffs. You know how many puffed cheese snacks pale in comparison to the original? These are actually BETTER. They are the right density, have a good flavor, and don’t leave a greasy aftertaste. I have seen my child pass on processed cheese snacks after only a few bites, but he steadily munched on the Snikiddy Snacks until they were gone! I was also impressed that one (.06 oz) bag of Grilled Cheese Puffs contains only 3g of fat and 80 calories!

So while you can feel good about giving Snikiddy Snacks to your kids (and being sure that they will definitely eat it), Snikiddy Snacks are also good news to us snackin’ parents out there who need to watch our waist lines!

This is a review that I wrote for The Opinionated Parent, which ran on 5/3.

Definatly the banana nibblers!
My toddler would LOVe these, and I'd feel like the Working mom of the year giving her these during dinner, or packing a small bag for her to eat as a snack at her Nana's.

Yes, banana! Its a favorite flavor around here. Hard to keep anything banana for long.

Oh my kids would love these! Personally, I don't think you can beat chocolate chip cookies in any form LOL. However, if I happened to be in the mood for salty instead of sweet, the rockin ranch puffs sound good too!

Jenny Jones said...

I was thinking the cherry Oaties!! They look delightful!
