Nature’s Path Organic Granola Bars

Blueberry Hemp Superfood Power Snacks

This bite-sized power snack is filled with antioxidant rich blueberries, protein packed hemp seeds and dates for natural sweetness! It’s great for sports, road trips with the family, and your child’s lunch boxes. And moms don’t have to worry because this is organic, contains no added sugar, is non-GMO, vegan, and gluten-free.

Macrobars Organic Bars – Variety Pack


Does your immune system need a little boost? Or maybe you just need a little protein? Try these bars from Go Macro. They come in peanut butter chocolate chip, granola with coconut, and cherries and berries. They are organic, gluten free, GMO free and macrobiotic. Oh, and they’re yummy!

Mamma Chia Squeeze Vitality Snack

Mamma-Chia-Squeeze-SnackDid you know Chia seeds are loaded with good-for-you Omega 3’s?  Couple that with an antioxidant powerhouse like blackberries and you have a filling home run! And your kids will love this squeeze pack from Momma Chia. Also check out their other flavors.

That’s It Bars Super Sampler

Keeping fruit in the car is not always easy (especially here in the Texas heat).  These bars contain fruit and that’s it! They are the perfect way to get your child to eat fruit on the run.    Pack them in your car so that you don’t have to resort to the drive-thru in between soccer and dance.

Stock up on any or all of these great, healthy snacks so that you are prepared next time your kids are hungry in the car.
