We are Mamas on the move, always searching for a way to infuse healthy options into our kids' diet. Thankfully, we received a complimentary box of Educational Snacks by Dick & Jane (Twitter: @DickandJane_Edu) to review with our pickiest eaters - 3 girl, 3 boy, 5 & 8 girls.
The fact that the snacks are whole grain, nut free, and only 5g of sugar per serving is amazing - I needed to know that I could pass these bags to each child without sparking a ridiculous sugar attack. Did I mention my 3 year old is not interested in candy or heavily sugar based snacks? (Fingers crossed her position will follow her through high school.) But, I digress.
When it comes to trying something new - I like to present our troop with a product in a group, once they are not fighting and seemingly in a good mood. The best time presented itself after the Peanuts Movie. Grinning from ear to ear, they were excited and ready to be our "testers". So, I handed the Bilingual snacks to the 3s, State/Capitals to 5 and the Presidents to 8 (to which she replied, "I'm learning Presidents in Social Studies!".
They tore into the bags and immediately started describing each snack. I was surprised at the size of each piece. They were big enough to display the snack theme. My daughter enjoyed the "siesta" snack as we drove home - I crossed my fingers that nap time would be just as simple.
Vanilla Flavor and theme appropriate to our 3-8 year old group.
Serving size proved to be just enough - my tot ate them all.
Size of each piece displayed the theme in clear manner.
My kid refused to share.
We used them for after school snacks, lunch boxes, and between soccer practice or gymnastics. Pick yours up today!
Like most Mamas, we want the best for our troop. If you are looking for an alternative to your current snack options - check out http://www.dickandjanebakingco.com/ for the nearest store and Amazon.
