Healthier Holiday Snacking and Giveaway

We are in the danger season. From about mid-October through New Years, there tends to be a LOT more snacking, more sugar, and unhealthy foods at work, at home, at parties. You know what I am talking about. How can you turn down all those tasty holiday treats?

One tip I love is to have lots of healthy alternatives available and make sure you are not hungry before you go places full of temptation. Snack on something healthy this season with some of the delicious products below that I was generously sent to try out for myself.

Crunchies Natural Food Company and its delicious line of freeze-dried fruit adds a nutrient boost to your snacking. Unlike traditional dried products, Crunchies’ freeze-drying method preserves the nutritional value of fresh fruit while delivering a satisfying crunch.

What I love most about Crunchies is that they have so many more varieties than most freeze dried fruit products I have tried. My family loves their grapes, mango, blueberries and cinnamon apple. All Crunchies products have just one ingredient – fruit. Gotta love that!

As a mom of four, I always try to keep a Happy Family package or two in my purse. One of the kids is always hungry, and these make delicious, organic, healthy snacks or additions to less healthy meals you might be faced with around the holidays. We especially love their Coconut Creamies, Love My Veggies, Happy Tot Plus, Happy Squeeze and Fruit and Veggie Crisps. Between my four children, Happy Family has products for everyone. They are also perfect for paleo, gluten-free, or other allergy sensitive families.
From my seven year old all the way down to my 10 month old, these were a huge hit!
My kids think these snacks are super cool and fun. I think they are super healthy and provide just the kind of nutrition I want my kids to have. Plus their handy packaging makes snacking a little less messy for all of us! Find Happy Family products at Target stores and other retailers near you.
If you are looking for a bit of indulgence without the unhealthy aspect, you have got to try Big Slice snack pouches. These are like adult sophisticated applesauce, but so much more. Their fruit combinations, like Blueberry Pomegranate, Cherry Vanilla and Lemon Berry, are just divine. That's because they slowly cook fresh slices of GMO-free, USA-grown apples until they transform into thick juicy chunks. Then they mix in pure whole fruits and superfoods, resulting in a delicious, healthy snack that provides protein, fiber, and energy.
You have 16 luxurious flavors to choose from, all of which are around 100 calories per pouch. As much as I would have liked to keep these all for myself, the moment my kids spotted them, they were begging to try them.I do not know who loves them more - the kids or me?

Now you can try them too!
 We are giving away an awesome Big Slice package which consists of 12 sample pouches, assorted flavors, Big Slice Tumbler, and Spork. ($50 value) Enter below.
