Take It From Me: Healthy Back-to-School Snacks from Van's {Review & Giveaway}

Healthy Back-to-School Snacks from Van's {Review & Giveaway}

School is just around the corner and I am pretty excited! My daughter is starting Kindergarten and is very thrilled! She's been talking about school for months now and we recently went back-to-school shopping and let her pick out her own backpack and lunch box. 

Now it's time to come up with some healthy snack options for her!

I am pretty strict when it comes to eating and love when I can find healthy snacks for my family. Van's Natural Foods is a company I trust and love because they use smart ingredients. I am a label reader when I buy foods because not all food is created equal and loved that they have written on their ingredient list "ingredients we are proud of." The fact that they stand by their ingredient is awesome! 


We received three yummy products from Van's and they lasted only a few hours in our house, so my kids must have enjoyed them! We received the Honey Nut Crunch cereal, Fire-Roasted Veggie Crackers, Nacho, Nacho, Man! Multigrain Chips.


The Honey Nut Crunch Cereal is Gluten-Free and a nice light breakfast choice. It also has just the right amount of sweetness and is great to eat as a snack. My kids love having snacks, so I'll often put some cereal in a bowl or a bag and they love it! 

The Fire-Roasted Veggie Crackers were very flavorful and were great to eat on their own and with our home-made hummus. They were very light and crispy, making the perfect snack.

Lastly, we sampled the new Nacho, Nacho, Man! Multigrain Chips. My husband and I were both very surprised at how tasty these were, especially since they are made with brown rice, oats, millet, quinoa and amaranth. They are very thin and flaky which I found to be a great alternative to regular potato chips.


If you are on the search for some healthy snacks for your kids this school year Van's Natural Foods has some great choices. Find a store near you by simply going to their site and entering your zip code.
