Van's Summer Snacking

Summertime often means a break from the routine of the rest of the year. How many of you spend these summer days enjoying fun in the sun, vacations, adventures, later bedtimes and so much more?

Sometimes that break from routine also instigates a break from healthy eating patterns. I know there are so many fun summer treats, but there are also a lot of healthier summer snacks too! This summer, Van’s Natural Foods offers healthy new snacks with its all-natural, nutrition-packed whole grain snack bars and crackers. These portable treats – perfect for day camp backpacks, family road trip snacks, pool totes or beach bags – offer a delicious and nutritious way to snack that the whole family can enjoy.

One common misconception with healthier snacks is that they just don't taste good. Well, I can vouch for these - they taste amazing!

Van’s Whole Grain Crackers are deliciously light and perfectly crispy. My favorite is the Say Cheese! flavor. These are so lick-your-fingers cheesy!! They are baked with nutrient-rich whole grains, including gluten free oats, brown rice, millet, quinoa and amaranth. Besides, the Say Cheese! variety, they are also available in two other flavors – Multigrain and Lots of Everything! These crackers are all made with 16 grams of whole grains per serving – and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Love that!

Van’s Whole Grain Snack Bars in chewy, delicious Chocolate Chip, Cranberry Almond and Peanut Butter Chocolate, are perfect for breakfast on-the-run, snack-time or an anytime nutritious treat. Baked with real, all-natural ingredients and nutrient-rich whole grains, the bars have 8-10 grams of whole grains and 4 grams of fiber per serving. These are also gluten free and very tasty indeed!

Plus, you've got to try their new gluten free cereals - Cinnamon Heaven and Honey Nut Crunch. I don't eat cereal anymore, but I couldn't help but snack on this cereal by the hand full.  With 17g of nutrient-rich whole grains and 5g of fiber per serving, Van’s new gluten free cereals are great for breakfast or a snack anytime.

Check out all Van's new gluten free snacks here, and have a wonderful summer!
