Fuel Up for Back to School with Nature’s Path

Natures Path Envirokidz
Last week our girls headed back to school which means it’s time to pack lunches. As a mom I want my girls to have healthy and filling lunches and I often turn to brands that I know I can trust. Nature’s Path is one of those brands that moms can feel great about.

With Natures Path Envirokidz I can not only make sure my girls get a healthy breakfast cereal but that they’re snacks and lunches are just as fun and nutritious!

Schools out and your kiddos are hungry. Do you have healthy snacks ready to go?  I have a few tips I wanted to share that help our family snack healthy and stay healthy too.

  1. Plan Meals – Make sure your family is eating healthy and whole meals. If a little belly is full it will be less likely to want a snack later on.
  2. Measure It Out – Kiddos often have an easy way of eating too much so it’s important that you measure out snacks for them. If dinner is in an hour and ballet class just ended I know my daughter will need a light snack to tie her over. Too big of a snack will spoil her appetite for dinner.
  3. Be Prepared – Once you have measured it out keep healthy snacks on hand and easy for your children to reach. I keep small bags with carrots and grapes in the fridge along with EnviroKidz Crispy Rice Bars in a jar on the counter.

Natures Path Envirokidz (3) Right now EnviroKidz is sending three lucky families on an EnviroTrip to Costa Rica to help save the sea turtles at SEE Turtles. The non-profit wildlife conservation travel operator in the beautiful OSA peninsula. Three lucky winners and their families (three groups of 4 people) will get an all-expense paid trip to Costa Rica in March 2015.

You will get to  spend three days working with Costa Rican organization Latin American Sea Turtles to catch endangered green and hawksbill sea turtles in the Golfo Dulce, a beautiful gulf located alongside the Osa Peninsula. Then you will help researchers set out nets, measure the turtles, and collect important data before releasing them back to the water. In addition, the winners will participate in a mangrove restoration project, helping to plant two species of mangrove trees that are critical to turtles and other wildlife of the Gulf. Finally, the winners will visit a chocolate farm to see how the world’s favorite treat is made!

envirotripz It’s a truly incredible opportunity to really get to see and impact the world and you can enter for your family to win now! Be sure to like EnviroKidz on Facebook to get started!

    i like how you have them in the glass jar. my kids wouldln’t be able to reach them however they would try to climb and hurt themselves !!! but it’s very pretty!

  2. says

    These sound perfect for my kids. I literally just got asked for an after-school snack. I am going to look for these next time I am out at the store.

  3. says

    Although I have a sweet tooth, I’m a big believer in providing healthy snacks for kids. I love the idea of making sure easy to reach, convenient and healthy snacks are accessible. This way kids don’t go for the junk when they want something quick to eat.

    The main thing for our family is that we have to just NOT keep sweets in the house. If it’s there we WILL eat it but if we only have good options we have to eat well! I love Nature’s Path products!! So yummy!

  5. Sandra says

    What an adorable sandwich–what shape would you call that? Splat/Star? Very cute–my kids would love a lunch like this!

  6. Shauna says

    We always keep the healthy snacks low for kids to grab and the ‘every now and then’ snacks on the top shelf… ha! Thanks for the sweeps too

  7. Jenna Wood says

    Wow, what a great opportunity prize pack! I like to keep fresh fruit in the center of our dining table for after school munch attacks. We also love the Nature’s Path Crispy Rice Bars!

  8. says

    I will have to get some of these snacks. They will be great to have on hand since all 3 of my girls will be in school this year.

  9. says

    I totally agree about keeping kids’ snacks at hand and within reach. If they’re healthy, you don’t mind that they’re grabbing them.

  10. says

    I find that planning our meals really does help save us time and money! What a cute idea to cut sandwiches out with cookie cutters!

  11. Ann Bacciaglia says

    I love snacks. Keeping them where they are easily reached for little ones is a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

  12. says

    I love healthy snacks for my kids and this sound yummy; my kids love to snack but I will not bring a lot of Junk food into the house, thanks for sharing and I will check these out, totally sound like I would like to have them in my home

  13. Amy Desrosiers says

    My daughter depended on these snacks when she has an allergy! They are really healthy, and come in great flavors!

  14. Karen Jaras says

    Portion control is key. I do not want to deny my grandkids, but rather teach them that everything is OK in moderation.

  15. Jessica Beard says

    I try to have lots of fruits and veggies already cut up, so the kids can have a quick and healthy snack when needed.
