With school now in full swing and the holidays just around the corner, snack time can easily turn into trouble. When it comes to school lunches, snacks tend to be whatever is convenient. Then, as the holidays near, snacking often takes a turn toward overindulgence. This year, let’s break the cycle. Instead of caving into the usual unhealthy options, how about we choose to combine healthiness and convenience instead of picking one over the other?
As a mother, when someone mentions healthy snacking and convenience in the same sentence, I’m usually the first one to throw up the red flags. The two together are just seemingly impossible, right? Unless you have a snack sized travel-friendly bowl of fresh fruits and veggies, the two almost never go hand-in-hand. As parents, that is one of our biggest downfalls. We want to be able to provide our children (and ourselves) with great, nutritional snacking options but, at the same time, the hectic schedules of multiple family members often leave us grabbing for the easiest and quickest to-go options. Unfortunately, convenient doesn’t always mean healthy and nutritional isn’t always simple… or is it?
What if I told you that it is possible? And what if I told you that you could get this amazing goodness rather simply?
Please allow me to introduce you to one of my own family’s new favorite product lines – CVS/pharmacy Gold Emblem Abound.
Making the great even greater, Gold Emblem Abound is free of artificial preservatives and flavors.
We combine nutritious ingredients with great taste in every product – so you can have the best of both worlds in every bite. Each one is free from artificial preservatives and flavors, and contains zero trans-fat.
When our box of Gold Emblem Abound products arrived from CVS/pharmacy, I was pleasantly surprised to see how many delicious treats there actually were. The kids dove right in claiming their own favorites from the get go. And, this time, I was actually all for it! You see, with the entire line of Gold Emblem Abound products being made with wholesome and natural ingredients, they not only help one’s family to feel nourished and satisfied – especially between meals – but you can truly cave into their deliciousness and be completely guilt-free in doing so. Why? Because they are healthy for you!
Gold Emblem Abound clearly identifies the health benefits on the front of each product, making it easier to make healthier choices to support a healthy lifestyle.
With kids, teaching them to make healthy eating choices is much easier said than done. I have been lucky with my own children and, more often than not, they do make smart snacking choices a good majority of the time. However, with many unhealthy competitor brands plastering children’s favorite cartoon characters and dressing up their packaging with fun, kid-friendly colors, it can be hard for children to make the right choices. Thankfully, that is where the Gold Emblem Abound collection comes in. Just take a look at some of the goodies that we tried out.
- Superfruit Baobab Bites
- Superfruit Snack Bars and Fruit & Veggie Snack Bars
- Chocolate Chunk & Chia Snack Bars
- Mango & Raspberry Snack Bars
I truly cannot tell you enough about these snacks. They are, by far, some of the tastiest treats that I have ever had the pleasure of trying and I am beyond thrilled that the kids enjoy them. One of my favorite aspects, aside from taste, is the fact that, while healthy, they are convenient. Yes, really! With each being individually wrapped, the kids can easily grab their preferred snacks with ease. And, better yet, the Gold Emblem Abound products are absolutely perfect for school (or even work!) lunches!
Since the beginning of the school year, my own kids have brought along their CVS/pharmacy Gold Emblem Abound goodies into class for their respective lunch and snack times. As an added bonus, some of the items are actually nut-free as well thus posing no threat to any classmates with potential nut allergies! Could this get any better?
