Healthy After School Snacks

I received this product for free from Moms Meet to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided in the form of a gift card.

    The boys are back in school and we all are so happy! The boys were getting bored and mom needed some quiet time. It is amazing how much noise two boys can make. I do love my boys but those hours that they are at school keeps me sane and also allow time to get some work done. When the boys get home from school, I am happy to see them. The boys always talk to me about their day as they are washing their hands so they can have a snack. It seems like they don't get enough to eat at school as they are so hungry when they get home. I always try to give my boys a healthy snack so it does not spoil their appetite for dinner. The 10-year-old ( in the white shirt) is also a picky eater and on the small side. His 9-year-old brother ( in the blue shirt) is 3 inches taller and 20 pounds heavier.  So my motto with the picky eater is "make every calorie count." 

   So when it comes to snack food, I buy healthy snacks that taste good. As this mom knows if it does not taste good, they won't eat it. So when my boys saw me taking pictures of the Lundberg Family Farms Grounded Snacks Red Rice & Quinoa Tortilla Chips, they were excited to try them as they don't get tortilla chips that often. I don't buy chips so the only time they get them is at parties or at a friends house. I think the colored bags and the picture of the chips on the bag are what enticed them. It seems like they always want to eat when I am taking pictures.

This mom was happy that they wanted to try the chips. I was even amazed that the picky child wanted to try them. So I gave them both a chip to sample and waited for their reaction. I tasted one too and they had a great taste. I knew that the 9-year-old would like them as he is my healthy eater. I never have to remind him to eat fruit. The other boy may like something one day and the next day he says it tastes different. Both boys ate their chip and wanted more. In fact, I had to stop them from eating the chips long enough to get a picture. Once I got the picture those two ate the whole bag of   Red Rice & Quinoa Tortilla Chips. I managed to grab a few for myself before those two started fighting over the crumbs. The 10-year-old said, "I love the taste of Pink Himalaya Salt!" The next thing that I knew, those two boys were trying to decide which bag to try next. The one thing that I love about these chips is how flavorful they are without having a lot of sodium in them.

I love that my boys are enjoying a snack that is made with whole grains. The USDA Certified Organic ingredients are awesome too! When the older son started reading the ingredients, he said: " mom they put organic in front of every word." I told that is because every ingredient is organic and they are also GMO-free. I just love that my boys are excited to learn about nutrition. I am trying to teach them how each food helps their body. So they know that these chips have iron in them that is good for their blood, protein for their muscles, and whole grains for energy. These chips are also gluten free and vegan.

The next day the boys decided to try the Cinnamon Sugar flavor. They did share with me this time and I think the picky eater ate the most chips. I am glad they don't care for spicy food so I will get the Ancho Chile bag all to myself. The boys proved me wrong on that assumption of spicy food. When I opened up the Ancho Chile flavor, they wanted to try one and they loved the mild spicy sweet flavor. Even my husband loved this flavor and he usually won't try food made with quinoa. Now I have to buy more of these. Maybe then I will get more than a couple of chips.

These delicious chips also come in French
Onion and Aged White Cheddar too. I am glad they sell these chips at the Sprouts near me and on Amazon as the boys want me to buy more.  To find a store near you that sells, Lundberg Family Farms Grounded Snacks Red Rice & Quinoa Tortilla Chips visit:

I love these types of snacks. These look so hearty and healthy. My son, who is an adult, has always snacked on salsa and chips. It is his favorite.

I love this type foods! We make a point to keep more healthy snacks in our house for after school, and I am always on the lookout for new ones to try. I love that these are organic, too! I think those Pink Himalayan Salt ones would be my favorite!
