Yummy Health Offers Tasty Snack Alternatives

Most parents constantly struggle with finding healthy and tasty snacks for their kids ... or for themselves for that matter.  We all try to keep on eye on sugar, fat and carbs for our families and need to find snacks that are easy to grab, throw in a backpack and satisfy food cravings.

Yummy Health has a wonderful selection of healthy snacks that kids (and you too) will love!  The company offers a great choice of snack options that are low in sugar and gluten free.  The Yummy Snack Bar in Chocolate Blast is lower in sugar than the leading candy bars and is also high in fiber with 100mg of Omega 3s.  The kids loved the delicious chocolate snack bar with coconut, cocoa, flax seed and almond butter  It's also gluten-free and has no high-fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, trans fats, artificial flavors, preservatives or food dyes.  A box of 12 snack bars is $33.48.

We also tried Yummy Snack Chips and they were also perfectly crunchy and delicious.  The cheddar flavor was total cheesy goodness! Instead of processed wheat, corn or potatoes, the chips are made of 99% real Wisconsin cheese without any hydrogenated oils, trans fats, gluten, or artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. The girls also loved the nacho flavor and the pizza flavor.  The snack chips contain 5 grams of protein and are gluten-free. The variety pack is $14.94 for a box of six.

Check out the Yummy Health website for more information about nutrition and children's healthy eating.  I enjoyed reading the articles in the Yummy Health Approach section which had many great tips and tricks on getting our families to eat better.
