Daily Mom Spotlight: Healthy Snacks by goodnessknows
SPOTLIGHT ON HEALTHY SNACK OPTIONS FOR KIDS AND ADULTS: Sometimes, as parents, wandering up and down the cereal and snack bar aisle at the grocery store can leave you feeling underwhelmed and discouraged. Many of them claim to be “healthy” and “natural,” however, one quick peek at the ingredient list oftentimes tells a different story all-together. That’s why we simply love the new line of snack squares from goodnessknows. Read on to learn why it’s one of our favorite picks for snacks for adults and kids!
goodnessknows is about to launch nationwide, and we cannot stop raving about how delicious they are (and neither can our kids!) Many times, kid’s snacks are riddled with preservatives and mystery “natural” ingredients. They also often tout over 30g of sugar in a serving- something that children simply don’t need to have added into their daily diet! And let’s face it- snacks need to be portable enough to be able to grab and throw into a diaper bag so they are ready when you are out and about with the kids. Parents can rest assured that the ingredients are wholesome, and they are so tasty that your children will love them, and you’ll want to steal them! (Or, just pack your own, like we do.)
In 2010, goodnessknows® snack squares was launched in the Boulder and Denver, CO area through an extensive in-store sampling program bringing the wholesome goodness taste to the mountain region. Consumers loved the delicious product, so goodnessknows® snack squares launched a full-blown grassroots tour which consisted of partnering with Denver’s B-Cycle program for Bike to Work Day and raising money for The Bike Depot for every mile biked by local residents.
In four short years, goodnessknows® snack squares expanded to Seattle, Portland, and Dallas and began to spread the goodness within the community. With their signature events at Larimer Square in Denver, Washington Square in Portland, and Pioneer Square in Seattle, local residents were able to share the goodness in their lives, participate in fit activities, and raise money for city food banks.
goodnessknows snack squares are a satisfying snack that are delicious as well! They are made out of wholesome nuts, real fruits, toasted oats and dark chocolate and (best of all!) contain no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. If you’re watching your caloric intake, each 4 square serving size only boasts 150 calories, and 12g of sugar. Did we also mention that they don’t have any high fructose corn syrup in any of the flavors, as well?
goodnessknows snack squares come in three delicious flavors:
Cranberry, almond, dark chocolate: Packed with roasted almonds and toasted rolled oats with a hint of natural sweetness, this combination leaves you feeling happily satisfied.
Apple, almond & peanut, dark chocolate: Crunchy peanuts, toasted almonds and tangy apples are the perfect combination for snack time, a treat post-meal or during your favorite indoor or outdoor activity.
Peach & cherry, almond, dark chocolate: Sweet peaches and cherries accompanied by wholesome toasted almonds and dark chocolate to create a satisfying crunch.
If you’re in the mood for a tasty treat that is good enough to share, but you won’t want to, look no further than goodnessknows snack squares. You’ll love the wholesome ingredients, and everyone will love the taste!
