Healthy Snacks On The Go From Munchy Seeds

Growing little ones often get hungry between meals. A well-timed snack can help with hunger between meal times and provide a much-needed energy boost between meals. However, many snacks for children are loaded with sugar and artificial ingredients meaning that many snacks are pretty unhealthy. I know that as a mum how daunting it can be to go to the supermarket and get healthy snacks for my daughter. There are so many different options and often the ingredient labels can make it really difficult to understand what is in each snack, making the choice for healthy snacks harder. 

The best snacks are nutritious whole foods that are low in sugar, fat and salt providing little ones with energy and the best nutrition. Fresh fruit and vegetables and foods that contain whole grains and protein are also good choices. By having little jars of seeds, dried fruits and nuts available is an easy way to start changing the way the family snack, with prepared snack packets for adventures on the go.

We have been trying different ways to get extra nutrients into out diets and seeds have been a great and fun way to do this. Seeds are great sources of protein, minerals, and life enhancing nutrients. Seeds are superfoods with so many great health benefits when consumed as part of a healthy diet, seeds can help reduce blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure. Our favourite way to snack on the go are without a doubt a packet of these delicious Munchy Seeds. We were kindly send over a lovely selection of seeds to try and add into our diet, and it's been really fun finding ways to add seeds to our meals and snacks. We were send over four snack packs in the flavours Mega Omega, Salted Caramel, Honey Roasted and Sweet Chilli, as well as two sharing packs of Mega Omega and Warm Cinnamon. 

The Mega Omega are roasted tamari seven seed mix that are high in Omega 3 fatty acids so these are perfect to add to a chunky vegetable soup or on a salad. The contain Sunflower Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, Hemp Seeds, Sesame Seeds, Rapeseeds and Linseeds meaning they are filled with lots of nutrients to help change up our mealtimes. We also have another savoury choice to add to our soups and sprinkle over salad with the Sweet Chilli which are roasted Sunflower and Pumpkin Seeds that are free from artificial colourings, flavourings preservatives. 

The Salted Caramel are our favourite ones to take whilst we are exploring adventures, the snack pack is so convenient to just drop into your bag. These crunchy little bites of sweetness and sunshine great for sprinkling over yogurt, ice cream or simply on their own. Full of Sunflower Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, Sugar, Coconut and Sea Salt making these seeds the perfect addition to any indulgent treat. The Honey Roasted Seeds are just as good. With Sunflower Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, Sugar and Honey and these are AMAZING to add to our overnight porridge, yoghurt and fruit in the mornings. 

The Munchy Seeds range have really been a big hit with all of us, and as parents to a little one who loves to snack on crisps, chocolate or cake we are really impressed with the range. We love the fact that these products are organic, healthy option and help get extra portions of goodness into our daughter.
