Superfoods for Kids

PicsArt_1375246245526With back-to-school season right around the corner, it is not too early to start planning healthy snacks for your kids’ lunches. I was recently introduced to a new line of healthy snacks and asked to share my thoughts. My Super Foods was created by two moms that were tired of not finding healthier food options for their kids, so they created their own. I received three varieties of the MySuperSnack (soft) Granola Bites for review….Chocolate Chip, Blueberry Banana Acai, and Apple Raisin.

The first thing to catch my attention is the “All Natural” label on the packaging. As most of us may know, nowadays you cannot judge a book by its cover…you have to read the ingredients and nutrition facts! What I found are whole grain oats, omega-3 rich flax seeds, apples, blueberries, amaranth flour, organic canola oil, 6-8 grams of sugar per serving, 3 grams of fiber, vitamins A, C, B6 and 12, Iron and other truly natural ingredients.  The best part? While it does not say so on the packaging, a peek at the My Super Foods website will confirm that these snacks are preservative and GMO free! Added bonus…the packaging is BPA-free!

While this may sound like just the treat you’ve been looking for, we all know it means nothing if your little one(s) just doesn’t like the taste. Well, my 6 year old daughter absolutely loves them. Her favorite is the Chocolate Chip variety (mine too!). She also likes the Apple Raisin.  She is not as crazy about the Blueberry Banana Acai….coincidentally, it is the least sweet of the three. 😉 We both agree that what makes the Granola Bites fun to eat are their soft texture. They make you feel like you’re indulging in little, yummy baked cookies. They are the perfect alternative to a healthy treat, snack or dessert.  My family is definitely a new fan. 

My Super Foods has been featured on The Dr. Oz Show, People, and Daily Candy. The company is dedicated to helping end child hunger in the U.S.A. by donating a generous portion of proceeds and products to several food banks throughout the country.
