Snaxx Box Review & GIVEAWAY




I am so busy with three young children, work, school, church activities, trying to keep up on my home etc. that I always feel like I need to improve on some areas.  A major thing I am always trying to be better about is getting my children to eat healthy.  As most young children, they seem to want to eat constantly and when they are filling up on sugary foods they are hungry every 30 minutes.



Then I found Snaxx Box.  Sisters Betsy and Molly worked to bring a helpful idea to life for families all over.  Betsy started with Snaxx for her own three children and realized not only did this help to decrease the constant nagging of  "I am hungry" but also helped them to eat better at meal time and boosted their confidence.  Molly joined in to help and Mini Bean, LLC was born with the goal of helping other moms.


Snaxx Box is a really neat recipe box that keeps healthy snack ideas filed by group (fruits and veggies, grains and nuts, and dairy).  Each card contains a colorful image of the food itself and the back side has nutritional facts and a fun fact about the food.  The box also contains three time cards.  You can use a crayon to write a time (by drawing hands on clock and/or digital time) and place this next to a clock so your children will know when it is time to choose a snack.



I was impressed with Snaxx Box for so many reasons!  This is such a great idea that would benefit anyone.  I often have a hard time thinking of healthy snacks for my children and this really helped to give me some ideas.  They contain such a variety of foods, many I hardly ever think of.  This has also helped me to eat healthier and be more conscientious of what and when I am eating.  We love to read the fun facts on the back and this has helped my children learn why certain foods are good for them.  They hardly ever ask for "junk food" because they are so excited to get to pick a card out of the HEALTHY box.  Although I have not done this yet, if you have a favorite food not included it would be extremely easy to make up a card to slip in the box for your kids to choose from. 

I have just loved having Snaxx Box in my home-  I am actually staying more consistent now :o) 

BUY IT:  ***You can purchase your own Snaxx Box online from Mini Bean, LLC***
