Back To School with Honey Maid Grahamfuls

Building on an 85-year history creating delicious snacks for the whole family,Honey Maid Grahamfuls is made with 100% whole grain Honey Maid graham crackers (10g whole grain per serving) and contain real honey. Best of all, Honey Maid® Grahamfuls do not contain any high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors.  They are also a good source of calcium.

They are available in three tasty varieties—Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter & Chocolate and Banana Vanilla Crème—Honey Maid® Grahamfuls.  With eight individually-wrapped pouches per box, Honey Maid® Grahamfuls make a great lunchtime or after-school snack.  I am hoping to bring them as a Girl Scout treat and send them to school as Will’s snack!  Both of my kids loved these!  The peanut butter one was their favorite!

Honey Maid has hit another home run with this snack!

GoPicnic

I am always on the lookout for good foods to give my kids. One of the prepackaged meals that I have found on the market are the GoPicnic meals. For me, they work great for cold lunch or car rides! However, they were originally designed as airplane food, so you can definitely see Julia’s (the inventor) inspiration. Prior to starting GoPicnic, Julia was responsible for conceiving, developing and launching United’s shelf-stable buy-on-board meal program and first class snackbox program, featured today on airlines worldwide. You can thank Julia for edible plane food! :)

This year at the Housewares show I attended, they showed nine new flavorful meals that run the gamete from gluten-free to vegan. All meals are well-balanced and under 500 calories.  The products include:

Tuna + Crackers (Gluten-Free)
Salmon + Crackers (Gluten-Free)
Hummus + Crackers (Gluten-Free, Vegan and Kosher)
Sunbutter + Crackers (Gluten-Free and Vegan)
Classic Deli
Salami + Crackers

Another great thing about GoPicnic products is that they contain no trans fats, high fructose corn syrup or added MSG, and no artificial colors or flavors.  We got to try the hummus and crackers meal and the turkey stick + crunch meal.  As a person trying to lose weight, I love that these are a meal that is low in calories.  If I need to, I can eat this on the go and not feel guilty.  Of the two meals, my kids like the Turkey Stick + Crunch Meal the best (however, I do know that the Turkey Pepperoni and Cheese would have went over very well with them!).  I love how everything is prepackaged for you, so if you don’t eat it all, you don’t have to worry about it going to waste (which is why I bring these on car trips!).  There is so much variety with their meals that you can definitely find one that you are going to like.

If you haven’t tried GoPicinic yet, what are you waiting for?

MilkBite Milk and Granola Bars

We get to review lots of different things here. However, sometimes we come across the a product that everyone in my house likes (which is few and far between). MilkBites is one of those products. My husband even told me to get more of them! That never happens!!

MilkBite is a snack bar that combines real milk with whole grain granola. It provides the same amount of calcium as a 8 oz glass of milk. For someone who is lactose intolerant like me, that is beyond awesome! They also include 5 grams of protein, 7 grams of whole grains, and is a good source of vitamin D and fuber. There are no high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, color, or preservatives. MilkBites are available in chocolate, strawberry, peanut butter, oatmeal raisin, and mixed berry and are available at your local grocery stores for $3.49 a box.

MilkBites are a great snack morning, noon, or night! We loved them and you will too!
