My Snack Pantry (and a NatureBox Give Away!)

In an effort to help me and my kids eat more healthy foods during the day, I carved out space for a snack pantry area in our mudroom. Let me tell you - it has been revolutionary!!

It has made packing for lunches so easy, and when the kids come home from school, they just grab something from the bins (thus avoiding any "mo-ommmm, I'm hunnnggggrrryyyy" whining). And I love that the shelves are near the back door, so it's easy for me to grab a little snack for myself before I hit the road (thus avoiding any potential to get hangry and the temptation for fast food).

It's been working so well! I usually keep fresh fruit like apples and bananas in there and I've also recently been using NatureBox to keep my snack pantry stocked with lots of healthy options.

NatureBox is a subscription service that helps you discover and enjoy lots of (seriously) delicious and healthy snacks every month, delivered right to your doorstep.

Each month you choose which snacks you'd like to be in your NatureBox. There are different subscription sizes (starting at about $20/month) and the box always ships free in the continental US.

The first thing I do when I get my box is divvy up the large bags into smaller snack-size baggies or small reusable tupperwares and then throw them in my bins. My favorites so far have been the Lemon Pucker Pistachios and Sunshine Chips, but I love that you get to try new snacks each month so my kids are never bored with what they munch on.

This sounds like a great idea but all of the little plastic baggies make me cringe...so much trash! There are so many lovely re-usable snack containers out there that are so much better for the environment!

Great idea! Wax paper, parchment paper and mini brown paper bags can be helpful in balancing convenience with plastic reduction. Personalized plates for each girl and right-sized scoops in canisters can be fun, too, for teaching portion control when the girls reach that age.
