If your kids are always begging you for snacks and you cringe when you read the labels of certain conventional brands, it’s time to step away from those national brands and look for something better. I love grocery shopping with my son, but when we pass by aisles of brightly colored and insanely sweet foods, I know that temptation for kids can be a dangerous thing.
But fear not, for there are companies out there who are conscious of what they sell to the general public – specifically kids. They know that parents want what’s best for their kids and even if you can’t afford it all the time, in the long run, it’s still better for their health. Kids are more susceptible to things that they touch and food that they eat so we should be extra diligent in what we put in their tummies.
Sometimes it’s inevitable to avoid conventional foods, but if you had a choice in purchases, it’s better to go for the healthier versions. One brand, who has only improved throughout the years is Van’s Natural Foods. We’ve enjoyed Van’s Natural Foods for many years now and I’m amazed at the new products that they come out with every so often. In our household we always have at least one of Van’s Natural Foods products and it’s most likely their frozen waffles or chocolate chip pancakes since they are easy to heat up and taste great with some maple syrup over them.
New from Van’s Natural Foods this year are their Multigrain Chips, PB&J Sandwich Bars, and Love Your Heart Waffles. The Multigrain Chips come in two super yummy flavors: Mighty Good BBQ and Nacho, Nacho Man and I have to say that I could not stop eating them. Their new multigrain chips are delicately crunchy, incredibly light and airy, and perfectly seasoned. And since they are baked, they’re generally a lot healthier than fried chips. Both multigrain chips are made with Van’s signature gluten free whole grain blend and are made with non-GMO sunflower oil as well as other delicious and wholesome natural ingredients. Van’s PB&J Sandwich Bars are delightfully light in flavor and has a slightly sweet and nutty flavor. So if you really like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches you’ll really enjoy their new PB&J Sandwich Bars. Since they are smaller in size, you can pack them easily in your bag or lunch bag for a healthy and convenient snack. Van’s Love Your Heart Waffles are also made with their 8 whole grain mix which consists of Whole Wheat, Barley, Oat, Brown Rice, Dark Rye, Quinoa, Amaranth and Millet Flours. All of these new products are added to their already comprehensive lineup of healthy and delicious snacks and breakfast treats.
Van’s Natural Foods have been in the natural food business for over 40 years and have dedicated themselves in providing the best tasting and good-for-you food that you can find. From cereal to crackers to frozen pancakes, you’ll probably find a few products to keep around. I don’t always have time to make my own pancakes so I just pop in some Van’s frozen pancakes and we’ve got a convenient and wholesome breakfast. Van’s Natural Foods are suitable for those on a gluten free diet and they are Non-GMO Project Certified.
