Not all lunch box packet food is junk #snackosphere Healtheries & Voices of 2014


A week and a half ago, our church held an all day festival for kids called Kidsfest. Three year olds and up could attend and little siblings could also tag along as long as they stayed with the supervising parent.

There was face painting, games, an animal farm, rock climbing, a mini church service, girly tea party area, fairy floss, jumping castles and a variety of activities for the kids to busy themselves with.

I had to go to a meeting in the city with Phoebe, so I got Jacob to have the day off to be with the girls. We were told to pack a lunch box for the kids as there would only be party food available for sale.

I knew it was going to be hot, and I didn’t think we would be out all day because Magdalene needs her day nap.

Jacob packed a lunch box with 2 sandwiches, 2 muesli bars, and 2 packets of Healtheries Potato Curls. It was going to be a hot day and the activities were held outside. I didn’t want anything  in the lunch box that could go off or need refrigeration. Because it was mid week our fruit situation was looking dire so I was glad to have healthy chips in the food selection for that day.

Not all lunch box packet food is junk so I have learned after reading the back of the Healtheries packets. Healtheries Potato Curls are a game changer in the #snackosphere because they have 70% less fat than regular potato chips,  are low sugar, have no added MSG or Palm Oil, have no artificial colours or flavours and are conveniently portion controlled served in a single packet.

I received a box of Healtheries snacks to review as part of the Kidspot Voices of 2014 blog post challenge and I couldn’t have received them at a better time.

Eating Chips

Being a busy mum to a baby and young children, it’s easy to give a packaged snack as opposed to something healthier like fruit or cheese as that often needs to be cut up. Eating healthy requires organization and a changed mindset. But Healtheries makes it easy and offers an alternative to the normal packaged food that is high in fat and sugar.

Do your kids love packaged food like mine do? What do you put in their lunch box?

Disclosure: This is my first entry into the Kidspot Voices of 2014 #snackosphere challenge.  As part of the challenge, I was sent a box of Healtheries chips to try and review.  I have two more product posts to share. All opinions are my own.
