Snacking Smart with NatureBox

Posted Sep 06 2012 8:20am

My preferred meal pattern is grazing. It drove my mom crazy when I was growing up that I’d want a snack after school, dinner, and then a snack again after dinner. Then again, my growth spurts were a little more dramatic than most girls and considering that I was 5 feet 9 inches by the time I was 16, I needed the continuous calorie intake. But I still like snacking or small meals throughout the day. I have a dedicated snack drawer at work and was known for providing some sort of snack on nights of 5+ hours of class in grad school.

But making smart decisions about snacks isn’t always easy, especially with kids. NatureBox is a new monthly snack delivery service designed to provide moms and big kids alike with a variety of healthy snacks. NatureBox products are made in small batches with quality ingredients and strict nutritional standards including: no high fructose corn syrup, no partially-hydrogenated oils, no Trans fat, and no artificial flavors, sweeteners, or colors. Just wholesome, good food.

I was so thrilled to sample some of NatureBox’s products in August.

My box included dried mango, dried figs, Bombay curry cashews, Far East rice crackers, and Maui onion crunch almonds. I might not have gone on an exotic vacation this summer, but I love the variety of flavors included in this box. I was thrilled to see the dried mango was just mango, no sugar added like many other companies.

What I love the most about NatureBox is their commitment to providing food to all children. For every box purchased, NatureBox donates one meal to a child. 14 million children in the US are food insecure, or don’t know where their next meal will come from, and NatureBox is committed to be a part of the solution to childhood hunger. Such an incredible company and a great group of people.

NatureBox is also incredibly generous and is going to give one reader a free NatureBox! At this time NatureBox cannot accommodate and specific dietary requirements (such as gluten-free) and can only ship to the US at this time. To enter the NatureBox giveaway:

  1. Leave a comment telling me your favorite snack.
  2. Like NatureBox on Facebook ! (And let me know that you did, please!)

The winner will be announced and contacted on September 13th!
