With the holidays right around the corner, there will be some unhealthy eating around here. Who could refuse their aunt’s pumpkin cheesecake or homemade fudge? Our 4 year old will especially be hitting the dessert table at family dinners, so we have to make sure he’s getting healthy options elsewhere.
NatureBox is one way we are giving him better snacking choices between holiday get-togethers. Each of their snacks contain wholesome ingredients – with no artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors, zero grams trans fat, and no high fructose corn syrup!
We recently received a few snacks from NatureBox. It was hard to select just 5 when they have over 100 choices available! Since it’s Fall, I tried to go with season-themed foods that the three of us can enjoy – hopefully Baby D will be eating them with us soon too! When you join NatureBox, you get to choose from five different snacks or be surprised with carefully curated selections made for you.
To really celebrate our movement toward healthier choices during the holiday season, I decided to make cute Bento Boxes for Sawyer. I’ve been wanting to do this since seeing them all over Pinterest, and the NatureBox snacks make it so easy to do.
First, I went with a Fall theme, featuring mini pumpkin-shaped quesadilas and fruity leaves. I also added NatureBox’s Pumpkin Nom Noms and Cinnamon Spiced Almonds. Sawyer loved being able to try new foods and have a variety in his lunch.
A few days later, we went for a Thanksgiving themed Bento Box – perfect for a November lunch. I created a turkey from Sawyer’s favorite sandwich – peanut butter! The tailfeathers of the turkey are Sweet Potato Fries from NatureBox. I also put in some cheesy leaves and NatureBox’s Apple Pie Figgy Bars.
My son devoured the turkey and figgy bars, saving the cheese for snack after lunch.
Lunch isn’t the only time we eat NatureBox’s snacks either. We also grab a few when we want something to hold us over until dinner. They are much better than grabbing chips or cookies!
All in all, we have found that NatureBox snacks are perfect for this indulgent holiday season as a better for you snacking alternative – delicious and fun ways to change up the lunchbox routine! They also make great, unique additions to your holiday parties.
