I homeschool my children, but my kiddos and I often get out of the house to attend events with our local homeschool group. In addition to co-op and Spanish class, my kids love going to park day once a week when the weather gets warm to play with their friends outside in nature. Snacks are a must, and I try to pack allergy-friendly foods because many of our friends have food allergies. Having grown up with food allergies myself, I know the heartbreak and hazard of coming into contact with foods that can cause a severe reaction. Luckily for my family, MadeGood offers delicious food-allergy safe foods perfect for summer snacking!
May is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month. MadeGood offers healthy and delicious granola bars, mini clusters, and crispy rice treats made in a dedicated facility free from the eight common allergens of peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, dairy, egg, soy, sesame, and fish and shellfish. MadeGood snacks are also organic, gluten-free, and non-GMO project verified and contain the nutrients of a serving of vegetables from spinach, broccoli, carrot, tomato, better, and shitake mushroom extracts in each one. My kiddos and I received a box each of the Chocolate Chip Granola Bars, Chocolate Banana Granola Bars, Strawberry Granola Minis, Apple Cinnamon Granola Minis, and Vanilla Crispy Squares. MadeGood also makes Mixed Berry Granola Bars, Apple Cinnamon Granola Minis, Chocolate Banana Granola Minis, Chocolate Chip Granola Minis, Mixed Berry Granola Minis, and Chocolate Chip Crispy Squares. MadeGood snacks are perfect for my family to take to outings with our homeschool group!
My kiddos love running around the park and playground with their friends. However, a number of children in our group have food allergies including gluten, peanut, tree nut, dairy, and sesame allergies. I had to be careful around food as a child because of my own food allergies, so I pack allergy-friendly foods whenever I know that a friend with a food allergy will be attending a get-together. MadeGood snacks are delicious and easy to toss into our lunch box. I also love knowing that my kids can grab a granola bar or crispy square to munch on without putting another child at the park at risk of a serious life-threatening reaction.
Because my kiddos and I are on-the-go so often, I love that MadeGood snacks are portable and delicious but still healthy. I worry about the amount of sugar that my family eats. The Chocolate Banana Granola Bars and Vanilla Crispy Squares contain only seven grams of sugar per serving while the Chocolate Chip Granola Bars, Strawberry Granola Minis, and Apple Cinnamon Granola Minis contain only six. Each snack also contains only between 80 and 100 calories plus nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, thiamin, and Vitamin B6. I can feel good about giving my kids MadeGood snacks!
I honestly cannot pick a favorite flavor among the five MadeGood snacks that my kiddos and I tried. If I had to pick one, I would definitely buy the Chocolate Banana Granola Bars again because I have not found the yummy flavor before. My preschool son also enjoys the chocolate and banana bars because he loves both chocolate and bananas. I also really love the light flavor of the Apple Cinnamon Granola Minis and the fruitiness of the Strawberry Granola Minis. Both of my older kids love the Vanilla Crispy Squares as a special treat. The Chocolate Chip Granola Bars totally hit the spot when I need a little something sweet before bed. I am totally impressed with all five snacks and definitely want to try the other flavors soon.
Summer snacking just got a little easier in my house because of MadeGood snacks. I can feel good giving my kiddos the granola bars, mini clusters, and rice treats while also not having to worry about food allergies when out and about!
