On occasion I come across a new snack product at the grocery store that makes me smile. This is a nice contrast to the normal - me scouring the aisles for ANYTHING that is 1)Organic 2)Healthy in general and 3)EASY. Seriously, wouldn't it be nice if the store just wouldn't even sell the junk?!

Here is a tiny list of some snack products that I love and have enjoyed personally.

Mac n' Cheese is an afternoon snack favorite with my kiddos. Annie's is good stuff. It is made from mostly organic ingredients and is junk free. The only thing that would make it even better is whole wheat pasta.

We love cheese in this house! My favorite is feta. The kids love these cheese sticks, and so does their Mommy .  This is an easy on-the-way-out-the-door snack. We buy Horizon Organic Cheese Sticks.

Yogurt is so yummy and great for digestive health. Also by Horizon these Yogurt Tubes we reserve for mornings when we are on our way to a playdate or the library.

Thursdays is a special day around here. We get up early and head to church where I teach the babies and my children get to play with their buddies. The only catch is I have to send a snack with each child to bible class. All I have to do is throw a couple handfuls of these into a pouch and we are on our way. Our favorites are the Just Peas and Just Blueberries from Just Tomatoes. (PS- Sometimes I send FRESH fruit and veggies too!) I buy the organic option, duh.

My latest discovery Smashies!!! Oh my goodness how I love the people who invented this amazing product. This apple sauce is organic with no additives. Talk about EASY and mess-free. My 20 month old daughter has not yet mastered the spoon, so these save my booty.

The truth is, I would LOVE to feed my kids the muffin tin way everyday! But that is a whole 'nother post!
