Our summer has been filled with beach days, picnics, play dates and more.  We are rarely home and often pack lunch and snacks to eat outside.  As a mom with two littles at home with me, I need snacks that can keep a two year old happy while I nurse a baby and I need options to keep me satiated since I’m always hungry!
Lately it’s been too hot to bake our own granola bars, which is our usual snack.We are all a little bored with buying cereal bars from Whole Foods or Trader Joes.  I was psyched to be introduced to Navitas Naturals Power Snacks.  Finally a snack that is not just healthy, but it includes superfoods that are sustainably-cultivated.  These yummy treats are organic, raw and vegan.  (Since my little guy doesn’t like when I have dairy these days, they are also breastfeeding approved.)  I tried both the Cacao Goji  flavor and the Citrus Chia option…hands down the chocolaty one is my favorite, and my husband’s.  The Citrus flavor is more “figgy” than citrusy.  The serving size is 3 nuggets of goodness, which is fairly substantial as they are very rich and filling.
In addition to the Power Snacks, Navitas Naturals offers a great variety of superfruits like Mulberries, Goldenberries and also a powerful Trailmix.  This is not your granola and chocolate chip kind of trail mix.. This is more like an explosion of flavor in your mouth that you haven’t encountered before.  You keep eating it because each bite is just a little different than the last.
I will say the Goldenberries are quite potent.  It offers a zing of flavor that could help wake you up around 3pm to get through the afternoon.  Yet my little friend Tucker who is 1.5 years old ate them without blinking an eye.  I think he is going to be an adventurous eater…
