Wellness Wednesday: Great Kids Healthy Snacks

Healthy Snacks for Kids


If you’re a parent (and I know many of you are!), you know how picky kids can be, especially about food. You’d like them to eat those apple slices and cheese cubes, but they’d rather have chips and candy.

Great Kids Snacks is a snack subscription service that aims to make healthy snack choices fun for kids. Each month, your child will receive 30 healthy snacks in a box addressed to him or her!

The folks at Great Kids Snacks were kind enough to send me a box of snacks so I could offer you a preview of what you might find in one of their boxes.

The box was addressed to my kids, which in and of itself was cause for excitement. And then we were amazed by the number and variety of snacks in the box.


There were salty snacks, fruity snacks and sweet snacks. Crunchy snacks, chewy snacks and even almond butter. A few of the brands were high quality brands I’ve heard of before, like Annie’s, Kashi, LaraBar, Enjoy Life and Plum Organics.

A few names were new to me, like Rickland Orchards, Fabz, Honey Stinger and Earnest Eats. But that is what is neat about a box like this–you get introduced to new brands as well as old favorites!


Moms will love this box because of the convenience. The snacks are delivered to your door, so it saves you the trouble of searching for snacks your kids want.

Kids will love this box because it offers them a variety and an element of surprise, since the snacks are different each month. I’ve been calling our box the “snack treasure chest” and my kids (ages 2 and 4) never fail to be excited at the prospect of picking out their snack after bath time.

Now, did my kids love every snack? I’m not gonna lie and say they did. Sometimes they would take one bite and say “I don’t like it.” Ok then. Now we know which snacks they don’t care for. At least I found out before buying a whole package of said snack. Most of the time they did enjoy the snacks, however.

If you’re ready to get your kids started on their healthy snacking adventure, visit the Great Kids Snacks website. And if your kids love certain snacks in the box, you can easily order whole packages on the website as well. You can also follow on facebook and twitter!
