Van’s Makes Summer Snacking Healthy #Giveaway

The routines of the school year are about to go out the window with summer just around the corner – bedtimes, mealtimes and daily activities shift to focus on fun in the sun. Often that means that good eating habits take a back seat to classic summer snacks – ice cream, popsicles, lemonade, sno-cones and more.
This summer, Van’s Natural Foods offers healthy new snacks with its all-natural, nutrition-packed whole grain snack bars and crackers. The portable treats – perfect for day camp backpacks, family road trip snacks, pool totes or beach bags – offer a delicious and nutritious way to snack that the whole family can enjoy. (Bonus – they’re gluten-free.)
Finding nutritious, better-for-you snacks like Van’s snack bars and crackers is more important than ever as we get more of our daily calories at snack time. (In fact, according to a recent article by Stuart Cantor, Ph.D., in Food Processing magazine, they have become as nutritionally significant as regular meals.)

I am already stocking the cupboards with yummy and better for you snacks for my kids!   I work hard all school season to make sure they are eating healthy and I don't want that to stop just because school is over.    That is where Van's Natural Foods comes in!  They have some new super yummy snack bars and snack crackers!
Van’s Whole Grain Crackers (MSRP: $2.99) are deliciously light and perfectly crispy. A fun addition to a school lunch or a party snack everyone can enjoy, they’re baked with nutrient-rich whole grains, including gluten free oats, brown rice, millet, quinoa and amaranth. Available in three flavors – Multigrain, Lots of Everything! and Say Cheese! – these gluten free crackers are full of nutrition and flavor, with 16 grams of whole grains per serving – and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
Van’s Whole Grain Snack Bars (MSRP: $4.49) in chewy, delicious Chocolate Chip, Cranberry Almond and Peanut Butter Chocolate, are perfect for breakfast on-the-run, snack-time or an anytime nutritious treat. Baked with real, all-natural ingredients and nutrient-rich whole grains, the bars have 8-10 grams of whole grains and 4 grams of fiber per serving – more than four times the fiber of other gluten free bars on the market today, according to our research.Lots of Everything! Crackers
Recently we tried out the Say Cheese! Crackers and they did not disappoint!   I love cheese crackers and these had the perfect cheesy flavor combined with the perfect crispiness!    The Lots of Everything! Crackers remind me of my favorite bagels and are even great with a spread of cream cheese on top!
The Gluten Free Snack Bars are AMAZING!  The new Van’s Chocolate Chip chewy baked whole grain snack bars are like eating a chocolate chip cookie.  I can not wait to try the Cranberry Almond, they look divine as well!
Snacking this summer doesn't have to be all sweets and salty items, instead look to Van's for some better for you treats!
