Healthy Snackin’ with NatureBox


With summer upon us and the kids at home all day one of the things that I often hear is “what can I eat?” or “there’s nothing to eat… will you stop at the store and pick up ___ (insert any snack)?”.  Finding a snack that they all like and isn’t full of sugar can really be a challenge sometimes and to prove it I have a nectarine or two on the counter that are rather over ripe and attracting fruit flies.

I’ve bought fruit, veggies, granola bars, and so on and so forth. But nothing has really sparked their interest until recently when a NatureBox showed up on our doorstep. It was packed full of snacks that the kids absolutely loved… lemon meringue waffle chips, lemon pucker pistachios, whole wheat raspberry figgy bars, and guacamole bites.

Are you wondering what NatureBox is? NatureBox is a subscription service that offers the ability to discover and enjoy healthy snacks on a monthly basis and are available in 3 sizes, at 3 different price points: Deluxe Snacker (5 bags for $19.95), Family Snacker (10 bags for $29.95) and Professional Snacker (20 bags for $59.95). The monthly box always ships free (with the exception of Hawaii and Alaska – shipping is $1.97 to ensure a more expedited delivery).

All of the products are made from wholesome ingredients and are Nutritionist-approved. They abide by strict quality standards: No High Fructose Corn Syrup, No Partially Hydrogenated Oils, No Trans Fats, No Artificial Sweeteners, No Artificial Flavors, No Artificial Colors. These really are snacks that you don’t have to worry about and feel good about giving them to your kids.

My son always wants a ‘cookie bar’ for a snack and what he’s really asking for is a fruit & grain type granola bar. The whole wheat raspberry figgy bars were perfect for him and he would eat one and then ask for another right away. As a matter of fact all 4 of my kids loved them and ate them all before I could try one.

NatureBox is customizable too! You’ll receive a Discovery Box of surprise snacks for you 1st NatureBox and then you have the option to choose the snacks that you receive after that.

This is what’s left of my NatureBox…. most of the bags aren’t even half full anymore.

So many of the snacks are perfect for little hands and pack really well for when you’re on the go. Whether it’s to the park, pool, or on a road trip you’ll have a healthy snack that everyone will love.

    I love that Nature Box offers this service. Natural and organic snacks can be on the pricier side and it’s nice to be able to try them before buying a full-sized pack.

      That has always confused me.. why is it that the natural & organic foods cost more?

    I love the idea of this! And “No High Fructose Corn Syrup, No Partially Hydrogenated Oils, No Trans Fats, No Artificial Sweeteners, No Artificial Flavors, No Artificial Colors” – does it get any better than that??

      Nope! Not unless all you eat if fresh fruit & veggies!

      It’s amazing how many products out there that have high fructose corn syrup in them! What’s wrong with using plain old sugar?

      I liked the uniqueness of them. It was change from all the typical stuff that you get in the store.

    Love the idea of trying healthy new snacks! Sounds like something my kids would like to try.

      I didn’t even tell my kids that they were healthy or anything. I just gave the food to them and they loved it! There were a few that I was surprised they liked though.

    We have tried nature box & loved having a variety of snacks on hand. Many are locally harvested! Always appreciate trying new healthy snacks!

      I didn’t realize that a lot of it was locally harvested! That is great!

    I kinda like how it starts as a surprise and THEN you can customize more!

      I liked it too actually. The surprise box that I got was really good and there wasn’t anything in that I didn’t like. Shocker, I know.

      My kids will go back and forth between the pantry & fridge all day… nothing has changed since the last time they looked either! Same food each time. It’s like they’re waiting for something new to appear.

      It is easy because they do all the work for you! You don’t have to think to much about it.

    We LOVE healthy snacks… and the idea that they can be delivered is awesome. We travel so much that it’s nice to have bags of healthy food for the kiddos!

    Seeing as how I refer to myself as a professional snacker already, it’s nice to know that the legacy I’m passing on to my kid can be upheld with healthy options. Don’t get me wrong here, I’m not like downing bags of Cheetos every day, but I love new and quirky takes on “feel good” snacks. Totally subscribing to this service! Thanks for passing along the deets!

      I am a big fan of the orange (not so good for you) Cheetos! There is just something about the cheesy/buttery taste of them that makes me keep eating them!

    What a cool concept! I’m going to check this out, having healthy options at my fingertips makes it easier to stay on track!
