It’s officially back to school for just about everyone. And although my days become more productive with everyone out of the house, my stress level also goes up as I’m focusing more than ever on snacks – for school and after school. The wee ones are more hungry during the school year than any other time, and I want to make sure I’m feeding them products that I feel good about. NatureBox is a great way to get them fun snacks that they may not otherwise experience.
Each month, NatureBox sends healthy snacks to you as part of a subscription service for $19.95 a month with free shipping. The box is different each month, and you never know what you’re going to get until it arrives. When my box arrived last week, I was excited to see what we would get. I wasn’t disappointed. The August box contained five different snack items from Dried Fancy Figs to Bombay Curried Cashews.
I knew the Mexicana Mango would be a hit, since we love mango in all forms. I loved looking at the ingredients list for the dried fruit – instead of the sugars and other added ingredients, it was a simple “figs” and “mangoes” listed. Awesome. And opening the mango bag? I swear it smelled like I had just pureed a fresh mango. I returned home Sunday evening only to discover that my dried mango stash was gone. They were devoured! But how can I complain when the wee ones are happily eating healthy snacks for kids?
I was a little more leery of the other options in the box. The Bombay Curried Cashews, Maui Onion Crunch, and Far East Rice Crackers were a little more unusual, but I have pretty good eaters – so long as nothing is spicy. I passed the Bombay Curried Cashews to Mister Man when he decided he couldn’t finish his homework unless he had a snack. He absolutely loved them, and they weren’t too spicy. I’m thrilled, as we’re always looking for more ways to get protein into him. Little Miss attacked the Far East Rice Crackers – another dairy free item – with abandon. They both loved the little dried peas in there (awesome – sneak in that vegetable!) and the rice crackers were a great healthy snack.
I love the variety of NatureBox, as it is a wonderful way to introduce the wee ones to more flavors that they might not otherwise experience. I also appreciate that it isn’t a huge commitment in terms of cost or package size. Previous NatureBox shipments have included items from Lemon Pucker Pistachios to Harvest Fruit Granola to Southwestern BBQ Sunflower Kernels.
As a mom, I love that the products contain no HFCS, no partially hydrogenated oils, no trans fats, and no artificial colors, sweeteners, or colors – all things we try to avoid in our house. The $19.95 box arrives monthly with four to six new items, and you can pause or cancel your subscription box at any time. If you aren’t satisfied, they will refund your money. Sign up by the 5th of the month, and you receive that month’s box. Even better? For every box sold, NatureBox donates a meal to feed a hungry child in America. The only downside is that there isn’t a way to buy more of a snack you really love. There are some I would absolutely buy full size!
