Back To School Snacking With NatureBox



It’s time to pack lunches for your kiddos and send them back to school with healthy and nutritious snacks. Living in California our girls spend time outdoors at several points during the day, it’s hot here still and even though school just started our girls need that snack before lunch. I always make sure to pack that healthy and quick snack they can eat during recess or morning breaks and I know they look forward to trying new things.

NatureBox is the unique service that sends snacks to your home every month. When you join NatureBox, you’ll receive five different snacks every month. You can choose the snacks you want or be surprised with their carefully curated selections. Each snack contains wholesome ingredients – with no artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors.


It’s a fun idea to let your children pick their own snacks and each month try something new. The blueberry nom noms were the first to go form our box and other favorites included flax seed mini crostini bites and bbq kettle kernels.

I always like to add something fun to every lunchbox I create for our girls. A fun crunchy snack to keep lunch fun and exciting.


Creating a unique lunch is so simple and the more I am making lunch for my Kindergartner the more creative I am getting. This week she asked me for a fun heart inspired lunch so with mini cutouts I was able to create a fun and healthy lunch that is filled with fun flavors and new textures.

Something as simple as sprinkles on yogurt and heart shaped cucumber provides a fun and exciting lunch. I created an English Muffin sandwich to match the adorable heart shaped cookie for lunch. Using the bbq kettle kernels from NatureBox and the Flax Bites I created that fun and crunchy snack. Two small pieces of broccoli are growing out of the kernels. You can find more flavors and snack offerings on the online catalog.

It’s so easy to create that fun lunch and to keep your kiddos healthy with a fun and flavorful lunchbox. With NatureBox it’s easy and it’s an easy idea for busy moms for snacks and lunchbox ideas! We also like that the bags are resealable so even after school we can throw them in the dance bag or take them to other after school activities.

    YUM!! The BBQ ones sound so good. I love that you didn’t just put the snacks in their lunch but instead made a mix with the broccoli. Healthy and delicious – WINNING!

  2. says

    It turned out cute as can be. I like that even the cucumbers are heart-shaped and the broccoli trees growing out of the snack mix is fun!

  3. says

    I do a lot of bento-style lunches for my son. He loves the different shapes and I can sneak healthier foods into his bag.

    I have heard about NatureBox from some of my friends lately. It sounds like a great service. Those BBQ kettle kernels look good.

  5. Amy Desrosiers says

    I plan to add fresh fruit in fun shapes, block cheese, and yogurt to my kiddos lunchboxes. I am so excited for them to go back to school!!

    This is a great looking lunch. I’m going to have to up my game. I mean, how many PB&Js can a kid eat, really?

  7. Ann Bacciaglia says

    My kids are older but I would love to make their lunches cute like this! You are very creative.

  8. says

    That’s a lunch even I would love to have. My kids love the Del Monte Fruit Squeezes and they make lunch easy too!

  9. says

    I always thought these lunches were super expensive. I will have to make some notes and start adding some cuteness to my daughters lunches. These snacks look good, not just for the kids, but for me too!

    Nature Box has the best snacks. Love your little idea including the heart shaped cucumbers. I’m all about healthy choices and veggies are one of our favorites.
